Istria is the largest peninsula and the westernmost county of the Republic of Croatia. It is unique and magnificent, around which Adriatic sea has deeply etched itself into the land, sprinkling its jagged coastline with a thousand lagoons and islands, surrounded in the northeast by the mountains Ćićarija and Učka, with its  highest peak at 1401 meters above  sea level. Traces of human life in Istria date back to the prehistoric times. The first know inhabitants of Istria were the Histri, from whom Istria received its name. Numerous peoples and cultures, from Roman times to today, have left evidence of their cultures in the architecture, wall painting and in the rich church architecture. Valuable monuments of religious and secular architecture have been preserved from all periods.

Istria is spread over 2,820 square kilometers, with great diversity, from its interior with its gorgeous towns which seem to have sprouted up on the tops of the hills, fertile fields, rocky mountains, rich Mediterranean vegetation, vineyards and olive groves to the coast pounded by the clear blue sea. Discover the magic of coastal towns, listen to a fishing story and taste the tradition with a dish of sardines and a glass of local wine Malvazija.
