Istria Holiday Guide

"Dobrodošli" to Istria! Istria is surrounded by the captivating beaches, coastal plains and forests of beautiful Croatia.

Istria is located approximately 130 miles (209 kilometers) from Zagreb County, the capital of Croatia.

See why Croatia is so popular by visitors, by taking to the road and experiencing the wonderful natural and man-made attractions in the vicinity of Istria. If you are keen to experience more of the region, head 16 miles (26 kilometers) to get to Porec. Here you can visit the Basilica of Euphrasius and Trg Marafor.

When you are ready to venture further afield visit the nearest regional city. Pula lies 18 miles (29 kilometers) away and features visitor attractions like Archeological Museum, Naval Cemetery (Mornaricko Groblje) and Temple of Augustus. Roman Theatre, Pula Arena and Arch of the Sergians are also good to visit.

Sample a little culture, learning and lore amid the great outdoors at Croatia's fascinating farms, open-air markets and gardens. Croatia offers visitors some significant churches and other places of worship, perfect places to catch a glimpse of the region's gentler side.

Journeying to new regions sometimes brings out the inner-daredevil in people. If you are up for a challenge, have a go at paragliding. Croatia offers those in the area with a wide range of laid-back pastimes, such as cycling and bird watching.

You'll be sad to say "Zbogom" (farewell) to this magnetic area.

Croatia is full of great beach destinations. If you like Istria the you're sure to love our Split beach holidays or one of our cheap beach holidays to Dubrovnik. Whatever you're after, you're sure to find the perfect beach holiday with Expedia.
