Istarska županija

This heart-shaped peninsula, immersed into the blue waters of the Adriatic Sea, is a secluded garden of extraordinary beauty.

A look from above reveals the special Istrian palette: in the north with its white calcareous hills, in the center with its grey plateaus rich in water; on the southwest it flames in the heat of the characteristic red soil.

Istrian landscapes are truly unique. And hardworking hands have further enhanced it with a centuries long tradition of growing olive trees and wine grapes.
