Croatia // Istria // Green Istria

Croatia // Istria // Green Istria
The part of Istria in the countryside is know as Green Istria where are situated Pazin, Motovun, Hum- the smallest town in the world.

If you wish to feel the atmosphere of good old country households, wholesome dishes of the traditional cuisine, romantic hearths and scented wine cellars, discover the charms of country tourism, small family-run rural hotels and homesteads.
Through the enjoyment in the noble drops and home-made food while sitting on wooden benches under a rosebush or next to the hearth, you will taste all the gentleness of Istria and the beauty of it inhabitants’ lives. When the birdsong wakes you in a warm cosy bed of a traditional Istrian country house, you will feel that everything has an air of tranquility and that time goes by at a slower pace. The view from the window will open on fields, vineyards, olive-groves and gardens; gentle scenes which reflect the work of hard-working hands. If you feel like it, you can mount a horse and go for a ride through the woods nearby. When you get to know these households, you will feel as if you have strolled into an idyllic scene of country life right off the canvas of an old painting.

Towns in the interior of Istria
Ancient Istrian towns were built on the peaks of the hills: today they are treasure troves of antiquity. For centuries they have stood on the hilltops, crowning their beauty. Their thick walls witnessed the arrival of master builders and artists who added to their splendour. The doors to these ancient towns are always open, and the church bells beckon the visitors to enter. There are flocks of doves in there, men chat in the streets, and children play in the shade of ancient lime tress. The sun bathes the tranquil scene in a golden glow.
