Discover Istria's surroundings from the holiday apartment
The many lovely towns and villages have retained their charm in Istria making them particularly appealing. The largest town Pula on the southern side of the peninsula has a number of sights such as the very well preserved amphitheatre built under Emperor Augustus and is regarded as a landmark of the town. Poreč on the western coast has a number of temple remains which also point to the region’s Roman past and Rovinj impresses with its picturesque townscape and the church that that towers above the town on a hill. Other nice coastal resorts in Istria include Rabac, Medulin, Vrsar and Umag. Also worth the odd day trip is Rijeka at Kvarner Gulf or Trieste in nearby Italy.
In the heartland where Istria is clearly less populated you will find many pretty small villages. Some lie especially strikingly on hillsides and tower above the landscape. Often one will find the odd interesting sight as for example a pretty church. Bigger towns in the hinterland include Opatija, Motovun and Grožnjan known for the artist living here. A further tourist highlight is Hum which is close to Buzet and with 20 inhabitants regarded as the smallest town of the world. The nice landscape in the inland of the peninsula can also be very well discovered on a hike or during the course of an extensive bicycle or mountain bike tour. Along vineyards and through shaded truffle forests you can properly enjoy the nature Lim Bay is a special attraction which is likened to a fjord that reaches back into the hinterland where sometimes even dolphins have been sighted.
Worth a day trip is the Brijuni National Park situated in the southern part of Istria. The reserve close to Pula and spread across 14 islands does not only impress with its lovely landscape and diverse flore and fauna but here you can discover fossilized footprints of dinosaurs. The safari park on Veli Brijun should prove to be particularly popular with the little ones as they can observe elephants, zebras and other animals. Furthermore here you will also find the Tito Museum that is a reminder of the former Yugoslav leader who once had a residence here. There is a regular connection to the Brijuni Islands from Fažana.
