A travel guide to the beautiful country of Croatia!
Istria is one of the most popular destinations for foreign visitors to Croatia and its towns of Umag and Porec continually top annual polls of the best holiday resorts in Croatia, as organised by the Croatian National Tourist Board and Croatian TV. With a strong Italian influence (the region in fact used to be part of Italy during the early part of the 20th century), this certainly is a beautiful region of Croatia both along the coast and inland, with its pretty hilltop towns. Rovinj is a true gem of a town, and Pula is also well-worth a visit home to the Arena, a very well-preserved Roman amphitheatre.
The one thing that Istria does lack, however, compared to more southern coastal regions are many large islands. The Brijuni group of islands (near Pula) are the exception and great for a day-trip.
Bordering Slovenia and with a maritime border with Italy, this peninsula is easy to reach from the rest of Europe and is also well-connected by air to the UK to the main airport in the region, Pula Airport. There s a variety of options for reaching this part of Croatia, both flying direct to the region s airport at Pula or utilising flights to nearby places in Italy.
One of the smaller resorts in Istria, Umag is still popular with many holidaymakers. Pula is the main town in Istria and with its numerous sights including a very well preserved Roman amphitheatre is well worth a visit.
