The Istria region

Istria (in Croatian, “Istra”) is the westernmost county of Croatia and the largest peninsula of the Adriatic.

When we started exploring it four years ago, very soon we realised: “Aaaaah, that is why all these people adore Istria so much”. Friendly and welcoming locals, delicious food and wine, and gorgeous landscapes – amazing views and mountains of the north, rolling green hills inland and a perfect sea surrounding it all. It really offers plenty to explore and enjoy.

Watch this series of Lonely Planet videos by Anja Muti? to get some idea of how wonderful Istria is.

Town of Motovun - http://www.lonelyplanet.com/croatia/videos/motovun-croatia$motovun

Town of Bale - http://www.lonelyplanet.com/croatia/videos/bale-on-the-road-croatia$bale

And here is a lovely text about Istria from istra.hr:

“We are inviting you to return to nature in search of tranquility, to discover your true self. Istria, this tiny subcontinent below the Alps, immersed in the Mediterranean is perhaps the right choice for you. Change your journey from the familiar one, along Blue Istria, and explore the Green one – the mysterious enchantress…

Feel the atmosphere of the homes of your hosts, taste their homemade food, have a sip of their homemade wine. Find out your own paths, chose your own itineraries, make some lengthy steps. Magnificent landscapes, green waves of hills, villages, streams and forests, small churches and ivy-covered old citadels … legends are still alive here.

But, be careful, Enchantress may seduce you and you will remain faithful to her for the eternity. “

Zminj

Again, text taken from istra.hr:

"Central Istria

The dreamlike nature, almost mythical landscapes and gorgeous medieval towns of central Istria will awake within you the primeval and deep, true pleasure! Central Istria is one of the rare Mediterranean regions adorned with the quality of unspoiled natural landscapes and rich heritage. Numerous coves and hillocks connect and divide many magic-like settlements, creating almost unreal scenery.

Beauty unspoiled

Any of the main roads from the eastern, western or southern Istrian coast will take you to Pazin. It is the administrative headquarters of the Istrian County, placed at the very center of the Istrian peninsula. The Pazin fortification Kastel is elevated above the Pazincica River, a spectacular pit, a natural phenomenon placed under special protection. From this fortification, Pazin County - feud of the Habsburgs - used to be governed. This is, no doubt, the most beautiful example of the evolution of karst hydrography. French writer Jules Verne has even placed part of the action of his novel “Mathias Sandorf” here. Today Kastel serves as a home for the Ethnographic Museum of Istria and the Pazin City Museum.

If you move from Pazin to the north, in only twenty minute's time, you will end up in lovely Motovun, most important inhabited place of these parts since prehistory. This picturesque mediaeval town placed on a hill, has a rich cultural and historical heritage. It dominates over the valley of the Mirna River and the famous Motovun wood, a habitat of the best truffle in the world.

Keep moving upstream towards Buzet, a town placed on a hill in the middle of the fruitful valley of the Mirna River. Inhabited already in prehistory, it was fortified during the Roman rule. The central square with the parochial church of the Blessed Virgin Mary's Assumption, is the very core of the old town. While here, be sure not to miss a visit to the County Museum of Buzet and its surroundings. In the year of 1999, Buzet was publicly proclaimed the town of truffle, unique fruit of this mystical land.

You should also visit Roc, today an exceptionally active cultural center, as well as Hum - the smallest town in the world. Between these two small towns there is a unique memorial complex dedicated to the old Croatian Glagolitic alphabet and culture. Both of these towns are placed under protection as exceptionally significant cultural monuments. In only a few hours, one of many hiking trails will take you from the picturesque medieval architecture over the afforested slopes of the Cicarija plateau to the largest Istrian mountain and park of nature, U?ka (1396m). It is one of the last European localities where a patient eye of a bird lover will be rewarded with impressive contours of the griffon vulture or the golden eagle.

If you move from Pazin towards the south, you will find yourself in Zminj, a small town where old Istrian houses and holdings now serve for agritourism. Here you can get accommodation and enjoy the homemade Istrian cooking and the unspoiled nature.

If you keep moving further to the south, you will come to Svetvincenat, the art center of southern Istria. It is placed on the karst plateau and surrounded by woods, pasture grounds and vineyards. Kastel, the churches and the beautiful Renaissance square form a perfect scenography for supreme art events. Your thirst for cultural atmosphere will thus be fulfilled, bringing closure to this remarkable evening in your journey through the fairytale land."
