Istria Included in Annual New York Times 52 Places for 2017

Total Croatia News

Updated on:

As previously reported on TCN, Dubrovnik was listed in the New York Times annual list of 52 Places to Visit in 2017, released on January 4, 2017. It was not the only Croatian inclusion on the list.

An apology to Istrians for an oversight. 

Having published a story on Dubrovnik, listed at number 6, in the annual New York Times list of 52 Places to Visit in 2017, I had assumed there were no more Croatian entries.

I was wrong, as nestled in at number 41 was magical Istria. In my defence, we did publish what has been our top story of the week, Pula in the Daily Telegraph top 20

Congratulations to Istria. Here is what the New York Times had to say:

41. Istria, Croatia

New lodgings in an overlooked Adriatic region.

Long overshadowed by Dalmatia to the south, Croatia’s Istria region is gaining new attention thanks to developments like Family Hotel Amarin, a child-friendly, 280-room beach resort that opened last year, and the Valamar Isabella, which opened on tiny Sveti Nikola island in 2015. Boutique lodgings have popped up in charming fishing towns like Novigrad, home to the 13-room Rivalmare. Thankfully, Istria’s other attractions — Roman ruins, fresh truffles, great wines and incredible seafood — are timeless. — EVAN RAIL
