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".“
