Beautiful combination of islands, sea and mountains

Istria’s crystal clear sea, clean shores and ports, its lively fishing boats and teeming narrow stone streets exude the true charm of the Mediterranean. Small, picturesque medieval towns perched on the peaks of its hills emanate the peace and gentleness of landscapes that irresistibly evoke the most beautiful parts of Tuscany or Provence. The North Adriatic sailing region boasts a healthy climate as well as clear and shallow waters perfect for water sports and diving. It includes the sailing regions of Istria, known for small coastal towns with a lively offer on cultural events and entertainment, as well as quality wines and truffles, and Kvarner, known for its many islands. Kvarner region is beautiful combination of islands, sea and mountains on a very small space. In just one day you can swim in the sea, cruise on yacht and then enjoy in the shadow of the near-by woods in the mountain. In winter you can go skiing with a sea view and then enjoy, just a few kilometers away, in a salt-water swimming pool, in relaxing wellness treatments or in long walks on Opatija Riviera. The cities of the region are mostly built on Roman settlements with many interesting historical remains to see. The North Adriatic sailing region has an excellent yacht charter offer with its many marinas. The most interesting sailing destinations include the cities of Pula, Poreč, Umag, Rovinj and Opatija, the Brijuni National Park, as well as the islands of Lošinj, Susak, Cres, Krk, Pag and Rab.

Istria—traveling and accommodation information

Istria is the biggest Croatian peninsula is located at the northern part of the Adriatic Sea. Due to its position at the crossroads of diverse natural and cultural attractions, Istria stands out through its unique culture, music and gastronomy. Whereas the coastlines of Pula, Rovinj, Vrsar, Poreč, Novigrad or Umag bring to mind heritage and antiquity and conjure up images of Venice, in the central part of Istria the spirit of Central Europe is instantly discernible. In other words, Istria offers more than just the sea, sunbathed shores, romantic coves and tiny ports! She beckons you to follow the fairyland paths leading to the small medieval towns crowning her hilly landscape. Climb up to any one of them. Be it Motovun, Grožnjan, Završje, Oprtalj or, indeed, the smallest town in the world, Hum.
