Stunning lakes and mountains

In the north-west of Croatia, close to the borders with Slovenia and Italy, lies the beautiful Istrian peninsula. A land of beautiful beaches, of a vibrant and mixed culture set against the beautiful backdrop of the Ucka Mountains, Istria is sure to prove a delight. Truly the centre of Europe, Istria has passed from the hands of Austria to Italy to Yugoslavia and finally to Croatia all in the past century. Istria can be reached through the local airport at Pula, or for further options there are also the airports at Split, Dubrovnik and Zagreb.
