Local Information

If Croatia is the heart of Europe, then the heart-shaped Istria opens the gates of the Mediterranean to Europeans. Along with the fact that it is a multi-cultural and multilingual environment, the uniqueness of Istria lies in the fact that so much diversity is so harmoniously intertwined in such a small place: a rich cultural and historical heritage with modern architecture and art, untouched beaches along a clean sea with picturesque towns and the natural beauty of the interior, luxuriously decorated hotels and villas with warm rural village tourism, healthy Mediterranean seafood cuisine with autochthonous Istrian specialties. We would like to share with you information about some of the most beautiful places in the region, and much more, so that you can love Istria for what it really is.
