Wonders of green and blue Istria
In the morning we are going to meet for the first time magnificent Adriatic coast and tourism champion, Queen of the Adriatic – city Opatija. After we are going to the hinterland of Istria, exceptional green world, full of old medieval little towns built on hill tops, where you will discover misterious city Motovun. Istria is often called ”Croatian Tuscany” because of exceptional wines, wonderful green landscapes and vibrant atmosphere of each city. At the end we will visit stunning old town Rovinj which is voted as one of 10 most romantic cities in Europe. Enjoy with us on this amazing trip.
Opatija, like a beautiful lady, enjoys her riches and fullness of life. Opatija’s villas and hotels of exceptional architectural value, surrounded by the evergreen mountainUčka, healing sea and beautifully arranged parks, have perfectly combined the modern spirit and the benefits of a top tourist offer. Because of its unique climate and temperature, Opatija is attractive not only in the hot summer months when offering refreshment, but in the winter as well, with its mild and warm temperatures because of which it was a popular resort and sanatorium of the Austrian aristocracy. Opatija is a place rich in cultural and entertainment events, unique culinary delicacies and, in recent years, in superb wellness and beauty treatments. Opatija is absolutely the ideal destination for a totally relaxing holiday. Each visitor of the beautiful Opatija lives with its timeless beauty, carrying it with himself wherever he goes.
Another exciting destination is Motovun, according to the legend, city built by giants. The hilltop town Motovun, with its elegant system of towers, walls, gates and squares, represents a strong example of Venetian colonial architecture. Perched on a hill about 227 meters above sea level, Motovun is the most attractive town in the Istrian interior. Take a walk around the town walls of Motovun: The sweeping view takes in the vineyards that produce Motovun’s fine Teran and Malvasija wines and the forests that harbour Istria’s prized white and black truffles. We will have lunch in one of Motovun taverns and try local delicacies and of course, go to unavoidable wine-tasting.
After enjoying Istrian authentic kitchen, we are again going back to the coast, stunning city Rovinj, proclaimed as one of 10 most romantic cities in Europe. And it trully is…
On the seaside, the town is protected by a high rocky shore and house walls built on cliffs, while the mainland side is protected by solid walls. The town is dominated by the baroque St. Euphemia’s Church, its 60-meter tower providing a view of grey and red rooftops and chimneys, streets and squares, the port and pier with ships and boats, and the marina harboring yachts.
This unique old town core, the 67-kilometer shoreline, 2,289 ha of protected green surfaces and improved park forests, 16 islands, islets and reefs, make this town unique. Built upon a rich fishermen’s tradition, it has become distinctive for its unique boat called batana and its songs bitinada. Its beauty was particularly appreciated by artists who have painted the most beautiful motifs here and exhibited them on Grisia, the street of artists.
Romantic and mysterious, yet full of options for an unforgettable time, Rovinj has become and will remain a town you want to revisit.
Take a deep breath and feel salty and romantic essence of this glorious old city.
