Istria is very well connected to the Croatian hinterland, as with other European Union countries and countries of the region. In particular, it is well situated for our proverbially loyal guests from Italy and Slovenia, who comw back we are sure, again and again, not only because of the magic that Istria offers, but also because of its favorable location.

Istria is famous for its tennis tournament that is held every summer in Umag, Motovun Film Festival, which has so many visitors that the surrounding land cover endless rows of tents.
