Istria, The Heart Of Croatia

With so much to see and do in Istria, you’ll have to come ready for some action! With everything from truffle hunting to windsurfing and orca diving to paragliding, you most definitely won’t be bored while visiting Istria. Here in the northwest of Croatia, there are panoramic views out to the Adriatic Sea, countless cobble stone streets to wander and colourful cafés to spend your afternoons in.

Sometimes referred to as ‘Croatia’s heart’, Istria, the fittingly heart-shaped peninsula on Croatia’s northwest coast is in a world of its own. This 3600 square kilometre region is unique from mainland Croatia in more ways than you could imagine. Being so close to Italy, Istria’s food, lifestyle and even language have all been influenced by its neighbour to the west. With an area so geographically diverse, it’s no wonder visitors flock from near and far all year long to soak up what this magical region of Croatia has to offer. Istria holidays are bound to be packed with sightseeing, exploring and, of course, relaxing along Croatia’s beautiful beaches.

Istria is such a diverse part of Croatia that if you get the chance try and stay in a couple of different areas during your visit. Down in the southern tip of the peninsula is the city of Pula, Istria’s economic capital and a popular hub for tourists wanting to enjoy the seaside views. Back up in Istria’s interior you will find the region’s administrative capital, Pazin. Here you can enjoy age old architecture engulfed in gloriously green mountains. Pula and Pazin are two of the main areas where visitors like to stay when travelling to Istria, however, Rovinj and Porec are also worth a stay during your Istria holiday.

Travel to Istria and you will find yourself surrounded by views so picturesque it will have you thinking you’re in a dream. This heart-shaped wonderland jutting out from the northwest of Croatia into the Adriatic Sea is a hot spot for summer getaways, even for Europeans themselves.

Each year thousands flock to Istria in search of that quintessential European seaside holiday and more than often they get far more than what they bargain for. A holiday to Istria may seem like a long way to travel from here in Australia but trust us – It is most certainly worth it.

With its own identity, noticeably different from mainland Croatia, this Italian influenced peninsula is packed with pounds of unique character. Exceptional food is all around in Istria, often with flavours of Italy and Croatia combined to form an indefinable fusion. One thing you will notice when in Istria is just how fresh the food is. Food is often grown locally, or caught from the Adriatic most likely the very same day you sit down to eat it.

There is much to do in Istria. It is one place in particular where you want to make the very most of the great outdoors. Mountains, caves, forests and islands await in this geographically blessed region of Croatia. Whether you’re feeling rustic or beachy, there is something for you in Istria, all you have to do is explore.

One of the best ways to really see and absorb all that Istria has to offer, without working up too much of a sweat, is to rent a bike. The tourist board in Istria has a website called ‘Istria Bike’ which highlights all the cycling trails and available bike rentals throughout the region.

Along the seaside areas of the peninsula are countless diving, fishing and boating opportunities just waiting to be snatched up. Score yourself one of these and you’ll be well on track to experiencing the very best of Croatia’s well loved Istria.
