In northern Istria, the small town of Novigrad is less well known than the likes of Rovinj and Pula, but it offers a pleasant alternative, with a marina and some acclaimed seafood restaurants among its attractions. Only about 25 minutes from the Slovenian border, Novigrad’s location offers the opportunity to explore two beautiful Balkan countries in one trip.

Many people visit Novigrad for the restaurants, which include highly rated establishments such as Marina and Damir & Ornella which both offer fresh fish and seafood, and you will find a number of good pizza and pasta places too. The town hosts various festivals throughout the year, including the foodie Gnam-Gnam Fest and the intriguing Lunasa Astral Party.

Notable sights in the town include the old town walls and the Church of St Pelagius and St Maximus with its distinctive bell tower. Also check out the Lapidarium Museum for contemporary art and artefacts from the church crypt, or the maritime history museum, Gallerion. Croatia’s first water park, Aqualand Istralandia, is not far away and one of the highest-rated water parks in Europe.

A drive down the coast will soon take you to Poreč. Now a hugely popular resort, its historic gems include a Roman Old Town, where you will find the 6th-century Euphrasian Basilica, a UNESCO World Heritage Site known for its wonderful gold mosaics, and the beautiful Zuccato Palace. The old Roman street, Decumanus, is now a shopping hub but well worth a look for the well-preserved buildings.

There’s also the opportunity to walk, or cycle, the Parenzana Trail, which was once a railway track running all the way from Trieste to Poreč (about 60km). This scenic route provides an opportunity to get away from the crowds and appreciate the natural beauty of the region. Also pleasingly peaceful is the beautiful Zelena Laguna beach, south of Poreč, while the town’s Baredine Cave is a must-see attraction with its impressive grottos 60m underground.

If you head inland, east of Novigrad, you could discover the lovely hilltop town of Motovun, which these days pulls in the crowds with its annual International Film Festival, as well as some good bars and restaurants. Go further and there’s the mountainous Učka Nature Park – wonderful hiking territory – and the glamorous resort of Opatija.

Further south, medieval Svetvinčenat is home to annual wine and cheese festivals, as well as a castle, Morosini-Grimani. It’s just a 30-minute drive from stunning Rovinj, a wonderfully pretty town with an Italianate feel. You can best enjoy its coastal views from the 61m bell tower of the Church of St Euphemia, the highest in Istria.

Region

Nestled along Croatia’s enchanting Adriatic coastline, Istria welcomes visitors with open arms and a rich tapestry of experiences waiting to be unraveled. Whether you're seeking adventure in nature, indulgence in culinary delights, a glimpse into history and culture, or simply a warm and inviting atmosphere, the peninsula of Istria has it all.

Istria's diverse and unspoiled landscapes will be the first thing to capture your attention! The region is renowned for its lush green hills, rolling vineyards, and enchanting coastline: the stunning scenery is a playground for nature enthusiasts, hikers, and beachgoers alike.

Offering a remarkable 445 kilometres of pristine coastline, including tranquil coves and sandy beaches, visitors can find plenty of secluded spots to soak up the sun. The clear, azure waters of the Adriatic are perfect for swimming, snorkelling, and scuba diving, making it a fantastic choice for those who enjoy an active day of water sports.

Venture inland and you'll discover picturesque villages set amidst rolling hills and verdant forests. Istria is home to over 30 nature reserves - an absolute haven for hikers and cyclists, with an abundance of well-marked trails to explore. The Učka Nature Park, in particular, stands out as a hiking and nature lover's paradise, offering waterfalls, historic villages, and breathtaking panoramic views of Istria's outstanding scenery.

Istria's rich history is woven into the fabric of its towns and cities. An ever popular choice for tourists is the impressive port city of Pula, full of quaint town squares and local restaurants, and home to one of the most well-preserved Roman amphitheaters in the world. This ancient arena, known as the Pula Arena, is a testament to Istria's Roman heritage and hosts numerous events, including concerts and film festivals.

The medieval towns of Rovinj and Motovun enchant visitors with their cobbled streets and historic charm. The Euphrasian Basilica in Poreč, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a stunning example of early Christian art and architecture.

Istria's culinary scene is a treat for the taste buds: the region is famous for its truffles, particularly the elusive white truffle, and you can savour dishes infused with this prized delicacy in charming local restaurants across the region. Wine and olive oil lovers will find joy in Istria's vineyards and olive groves, offering tastings and insights into traditional production methods. Fresh seafood, often served with a Mediterranean twist, is a staple that you can enjoy at quaint waterfront eateries along the coastline.

One of the most enduring memories visitors take away from Istria is the warmth of its people. The locals are known for their friendly, welcoming nature and their willingness to share their traditions and stories with tourists. You'll find yourself immersed in the local way of life, whether you're exploring ancient towns or enjoying a meal in a family-run tavern.

Istria is easily accessible, with Pula Airport serving as a major gateway. Once you arrive, navigating the region is a breeze with well-maintained roads connecting major towns and villages. Language barriers are minimal, thanks to the widespread use of English, Italian, and German, alongside the local Croatian language.

Istria’s unique blend of pristine landscapes, rich traditions, and warm-hearted locals creates an experience that will linger in your memories long after you've returned home.

The kids have plenty to look forward to in Istria. This part of Croatia is packed with popular resorts and quieter villages and towns, so there should be something for all tastes.

When you’re staying in Novigrad, the big family favourite has got to be Aqualand Istralandia. Just a few minutes’ drive from the town, this huge water park has it all – there’s stuff for kids like Pirate Lagoon and Mini Surf, as well as family favourites Sky River and the Hydromassage Pool. There are even a few adrenaline-fuelled thrills like the Space Rocket and Free Fall – the highest slide in Croatia, indeed.

You will find similarly watery adventures at Poreč’s Aquapark Aquacolors, including a long lazy river and more giant slides. For a different kind of slide, there’s the treetop adventure park, Glavani Park. The forest setting around 30 minutes north east of Pula offers all sorts of other fun, with climbing nets and big swings which drop from 11m up, as well as exhilarating zip-wires. Near Poreč, you also have the dinosaur-themed fun of Dinopark Funtana.

Animal lovers may also enjoy the various aquariums that are found around the region. The marine life of the Adriatic is on display in Umag, Poreč and Rovinj. Umag also has another wildlife-themed place of interest, the Squirrel Park. The area has a particularly high number of them, and kids can watch them play and learn more about them through various squirrel-themed activities. Meanwhile in Bale, there’s the Istrian Butterfly Garden, a beautiful and fragrant place to visit which has attracted more than 50 species.

Poreč’s Baredine Cave is a great place to go on an underground adventure, and you’ll find more caves at Špilja Mramornica, not far from Aqualand Istralandia. With guided tours available at both, these are perfect for young geologists.

Motodrom Poreč is the place to go for go-karting, with a separate track for 6-12 year-olds and the main track for teenagers and adults. Close by, the Sky Fox adventure park has all sorts of treetop courses and obstacles to navigate, as well as paintballing. There are dolphin-spotting cruises departing from Poreč too.

Beautiful Rovinj makes for a great day out. Its pretty, cobbled streets and stunning waterfront give this town an idyllic feel. If your kids are up for it, a climb up the tower of the magnificent Church of Saint Euphemia is sure to be a rewarding experience – the views are totally worth it.

Reviews

  • Super holiday in a fantastic accommodation

    on 22/09/2022

    Fantastic luxury villa, with a great pool, and terrace, a super complete kitchen, all bedrooms had comfortable beds and attached bathrooms. The villa delivered privacy in quiet surroundings and in addition, was only a short drive (or walk) from the city center with nice restaurants.
    Whenever we needed help from the housekeeper the response was quick and very helpful.

  • Dream vacation

    on 25/09/2021

    This villa is just amazing! The hosts thought of everything: fully equipped with spices, hygiene products, toilet paper as well as shower gel, hair shampoo etc. The house is very high quality and decorated with great attention to detail.
