Croatian Tuscany, as people like to call it, offers a wide choice of things to do. Istria has advantage over all other Croatian regions when it comes to hotels, gastronomy, fun or adrenaline activities. The greatest number of exclusive hotels is to be found in Rovinj and Poreč whereas inland offers smaller, more private, family estates and boutique hotels. Istria is famous for its wine routes as well, and the production of wine in this part of Croatia is at the highest level. The best known type is probably Malvasia, a white wine with a characteristic nice smell, which is also most commonly served. If you enjoy horseback-riding, driving quads throughout isolated regions, adrenaline and water parks or if you have never tried looking for the famous Istrian truffle or simply want to enjoy riding a bike, then Istria is the place to be. One of the most interesting localities is the Baredine Cave, a true stalactite and stalagmite heaven, which was proclaimed a monument of nature in 1986 and opened for visitors in 1995.

Almost every place in Istria organises some sort of a festival or music event. The Motovun Film Festival, the Dance & Non-verbal Theatre Festival in San Vincenti, the Summer Salsa Festival in Rovinj, the Dancestar in Poreč, the Outlook Festival in Pula, Ulysses Theatre on Brijuni, Istra Inspirit…are just some of the fantastic events waiting for you this summer.
