25 Reasons You Should NEVER Visit Istria

Paul Bradbury

July 15, 2023 – Looking to visit Istria? Here are 25 reasons to make you think a little harder.

It is a region which has a population of just 200,000 people but is the most important for Croatian tourism.

A region often compared to Tuscany, famous for its olive oil, wine, and truffles.

A region which has a long tradition of tourism on its coast, but whose inland was largely ignored or abandoned until recently.

Being a Dalmatian island boy, my knowledge of Istria was perhaps not as strong as it should be after so long living in Croatia, although I had made many short trips over the last 10 years.

But a trip organised by the Istria Tourist Board in May 2023 opened up a new world of Istria to me, including some VERY off-the-beaten-path places.

So fasten your gourmet seatbelts, and join me on a tour of the Istrian Peninsula and discover 25 reasons why you should NEVER visit Istria. The latest from the Fat Vlogger.
