Istria

Istria, photo by Chris
 

Istria is a peninsula located along the Adriatic coast in northwestern Croatia.

It is best known for its coastline, filled with numerous beaches (more rocky than sandy), and stunning scenery of rocky walls plummeting into the sea.

Istria’s interior provides a stark contrast: an unspoiled mountain environment with ancient walled cities sitting atop hills surrounded by fertile fields.

Travelers are advised that the Istrian coast is extremely popular with European travelers during the summer, and especially August.

Overall Atmosphere: Combination
Combination Atmosphere destinations combine elements of both cultural and natural destinations, where this combination is itself essential to the travel experience. Common examples are Archaeological Sites (where culture is usually experienced outdoors), Scenic Local Markets (where indigenous cultures interact outdoors), Hotsprings and Vineyard Areas (where nature provides the raw materials but humans create the surroundings), and Unique Cultural Landscapes (where humans and nature interact in innovative ways, as in the elaborate rice terracing systems of Asia).

Combination Interests typically fall somewhere in the middle of the three types of primary interests in terms of
(a) how climate-dependent they are
(b) how accessible and physically demanding they are.
Featuring both cultural and natural attractions.
