Istra among Lonely Planet’s top 10 regions for 2011

 Istria (Istra),   the Croatian region that covers largest peninsula in Croatia, is chosen among Lonely Planet’s top 10 regions for 2011.

In the Lonely Planet’s article , Istra is discribed as follows:

‘Tone Tuscany down a notch or two – thin the tourist hordes, lower the prices, sprinkle a little mystique – and you get Istria. Shaped like a heart, this Italian-flavoured peninsula of 3600 sq km is where continental Croatia meets the Adriatic. In summer months, the sun-and-sea set storms the resort-lined coast, or so-called ‘blue Istria’. For art, food, wine and an offbeat vibe, head to the interior, nicknamed ‘green Istria’ – a bucolic dream of rolling hills, hilltop villages, rural B&Bs and farmhouse restaurants”

    I can fully support this suggestion. Istria is great for visiting – not only the seaside offers many places, beaches, cities to go but also the inner side of the peninsula – old villages, good vineyards and many hidden spots waiting to be discovered
