The largest Croatian peninsula, the so-called green Mediterranean – Istria is bathed in the colors of the blue sea, white stone and green landscapes.
Submerged deeply in the clear blue waters of the Adriatic, Istrian peninsula opens the door to a sunny and warm Mediterranean.
Multicultural and hospitable, this region nicely combines a multitude of diversity in a small area – everything in Istria is intimate.. nature, towns and people.
Istria’s beauty can be found in the variety of ancient castles & monuments, medieval towns, sea, people, villages and cities.
There are many harbours and marinas scattered along this part of the Adriatic and almost all towns along the coast from Umag to Novigrad, Poreč, Vrsar, Rovinj and down to Pula, allow mooring on the waterfront or in one of several marinas – this is no surprise, as this part of the coastline has been developing in terms of maritime tourism for a long time.
Kvarner is an area with a fascinating climate and vegetation diversity and compound of the seaside, islands and mountains, architecture and culture.
Closeness of European regions has enabled developing tourism for already 160 years.
With all the beauty and diversity of the Kvarner coast and islands, it is not surprising that this area is reffered to as the “Gateway to the Adriatic nautical paradise”.
All of the islands in the channel, particularly the larger ones, Krk, Rab and Pag, have one characteristic in common; they all have two faces. The face turned towards the mainland in buffeted by the bura and is rocky, while their south and west facing shores are tame, wooded and sometime luxuriously green.
