Holiday in Istria

Location and orientation

To the nearest holiday destination by the sea

Istria is a peninsula situated in the north of Croatia, which is one of the most popular summer holiday destinations due to its good accessibility from Germany. The peninsula lies directly on the northern Adriatic, between the Kvarner Bay in front of Rijeka and the Gulf of Trieste. The most important city in Istria is the port city of Pula. Famous seaside resorts include Medulin, Umag, Opatija and Lovran.

The North and the Inland

In the central and northern part of Istria, the villages are increasingly located on prominent hills. Due to the altitude and the wonderful surroundings of mountains and forests, a particularly charming landscape awaits you here. Buje, Buzet and Motovun are among the most important places in the peninsula's interior. In Gronjan you will also find the famous artist colony. There are also many monuments in the centre of Istria, such as the little church of St. Mary in Beram. The highest mountain in the region is Vojak in the Ucka Mountains with 1,401 metres of altitude difference.

Between 1962 and 1968, the dreamlike landscape of Istria served as the backdrop for the famous Winnetou films, such as "The Treasure at Silver Lake" and "Old Shatterhand".

Travelers and Activities

The most beautiful beaches for bathers

On the coast of the Istrian peninsula, one beach follows the other. The beaches, however, are interrupted by the many hidden bays. 40 of these beaches bear the blue flag, an award that confirms environmental awareness and quality. From the seaside resorts on the coast you will quickly reach the sea, where swimming fun is guaranteed.

Croatia's peninsula for hikers

Practically around every coastal town, countless beautiful hiking trails are waiting to be explored by you. The varied routes lead through villages, over olive groves and rocks, where breathtaking views of the sea await you. One of the most famous hiking trails is probably the Parenzana Route, which starts in Porec and leads along a narrow-gauge railway to Slovenia. You can also hike through Brijuni National Park, Ucka Nature Park and Cape Kamenjak.

The holiday region for water sports enthusiasts

The beaches of Istria have a number of water sports activities to offer. Dive into the depths of the sea to secluded caves and shipwrecks or take a trip by motorboat. Sailors, paragliders and water scooter riders are also welcome.
