A heart-shaped peninsula on Croatia's northern Adriatic Coast, Istria is renowned for sweeping white-pebble beaches, quaint harbour towns and warm, clear waters. It offers a clutch of four and five-star casino hotels in the resorts of Umag, Pula and Rovinj.
Attractions to Explore from Your Casino Hotel
When you're not playing the tables, why not seek out some of Istria's ancient Roman history in Pula 's old town? The Pula Arena is widely regarded as one of the best-preserved Roman amphitheatres in the world, and is also used as a venue for summer events, concerts and an acclaimed film festival.
Rovinj, a former fishing town renowned for its colourful harbour-front boasts a charming old town with cobblestone squares lined with pavement bars and cafes. After a win at the casino, why not head to the marina and take a day trip by boat or a cruise around the glorious Rovinj archipelago? Visit the area's secluded beach coves and snorkel in the crystal waters surrounding Katarina Island and Red Island.
