Hidden Gems of Istria


The Istrian peninsula, which is part of Croatia and Slovenia, is known to most of us for its fabulous beaches and stunning coastline. But many other attractions make it worth a visit, even in the off-season. These are the hidden gems we’ve put together.
Wonderful natural attractions, picturesque medieval towns and castles, and mouth-watering cuisine await visitors to Croatia’s Istrian peninsula all year round.

Istria, Croatia

Svetvincenat is a village and municipality in the south of the central part of Istria, Croatia.

Must-see towns and cities

Two historic towns are not to be missed when visiting Istria.
Rovinj is a picturesque place built on a protruding cliff, which was under Venetian rule for four hundred years. This has influenced its architecture: visitors arrive in a charming Italian-style town. You can walk for hours along its winding, limestone-paved streets and then stop for a rest in one of its cozy cafés.

And Pula is mainly Roman. Its most important attraction is the Amphitheatre: built by Vespasian I, it was already considered one of the five largest halls of its time. In the evenings, after visiting hours, you can listen to classical music concerts within the ancient limestone walls. But this is just one of Pula’s many historical monuments: you can also visit the old castle walls, the Arc de Triomphe, and if you still have the strength, the Venetian fortresses.
