Where is Istria?
The Istrian peninsula is still quite a secret place. Located between the Venice lagoon and the Kvarner Bay in the northern Adriatic it is incredibly easy to get to and explore.
Today 90% of Istrian territory belongs to Croatia, a very small part lies in Slovenia and a tiny part in Italy. Due to the centuries old wide-ranging Italian influence, stretching from the west coast to central Istria, most people are to this day bi-lingual, so road signs and place names are shown in Italian and Croatian.
The accommodation we have chosen is located in interior Istria - we want to let you in on the secrets of the hilltop towns and villages.
