Continental Croatia meets the Adriatic in Istria (Istra to Croats), the heart-formed, 3600-sq-km peninsula, south of Trieste in Italy. Croatia is country rich in castles and fortresses. These castles are located in the continental “green” part of the country and make the places where they are located even nicer and more profound.
Heading inland from the Istrian drift, you’ll see that group scatter in hotel complexes vanish and rises is an untainted wide open of medieval peak towns, pine timberlands, rich valleys and vineyard-specked slopes. The pace of day by day life backs off significantly, characterized less by the necessities of travelers and more by the requests of gathering grapes, chasing for truffles, picking wild asparagus and developing olive forests.
Istria’s frantically famous coast gets overwhelmed with Central European dreamcatchers in summer, but you can still feel alone and undisturbed in the landmass’ heart, even in mid-August. Include acclaimed prime white truffles, wild asparagus, top of the line olive oils and honor winning wines), sprinkle it with chronicled appeal and you have a little cut of paradise.
