Who knows who was the first to call Istria "the Magic land"- "Terra magica": the people of the ancient Mediterranean civilization, the Celts, the Histri or, most likely, the Romans. Nevertheless, all these nations and their cultures have disappeared, but Istria has remained, with all its magic - the magic you will feel at every step, in every touch...in a glass of the Istrian wine Teran, in a drop of the Istrian olive oil, in the taste of the Istrian brandy Biska...The magic of Istria is in its energy you must give yourself up to. Let the Istrian energy slide in its little towns - the Vrsar, Motovun, Buzet acropolis, in front of the mosaics of the Euphrasy's Basilica in Poreč, whilst watching the sunset over Rovinj, or sailing amongst the islands of the Brioni Archipelago, or standing in the centre of the Roman forum in Pula. Search for the Magic Istria in its hinterland, in the truffles aroma from the Mirna valley, in front of the walls of the tiny town of Roč at the foot of Ćićarija, on the hillsides of the Učka Mountain....
Istria is a peninsula full of peculiarities, inspirations and myths. Listen briefly to its century-long story. It is a story that has nowhere else been so successfully and masterly interwoven into the present time, into Istria of today:
a modern, modest, precious, touristic part...
Feel the rise of a mistral near Umag, peek into the Lim Fjord near Rovinj, recognize the Brioni islands near Pula by their diplomatic history, soak up the power of the sun and the wind on the most southerly cape - Kamenjak. Enjoy Istria - it is the best thing to do to feel the light, gentle quivering of the soul intoxicated with Istria and - to be happy.
Istria - Terra Magica is wherever you go, whatever you see, touch or feel.
