Yacht charter in Istra, Croatia
Istra, the heart-shaped, biggest peninsula in Croatia is surrounded by glimmering waters of the Adriatic and offers spectacular floral scenery. On the coast, charming fishing villages reflect perfectly the spirit of the Mediterranean, whilst inland, among the pretty hilltop settlements, one can almost feel like in Provanse or Tuscany. The fertile plains and hills of inland Istra, combined with centuries of hard-work by the locals, produce some of the most mouth-watering gastronomical wonders, with a strong Italian influence. Prime white and black truffles, wild asparagus and mushrooms, locally grown olive oil and wines and fresh seafood are some of the more noted delicacies one encounters in Istra. The Brijuni archipelago near Pula are a good choice for a starting point if you are planning in sailing in Croatia.
