Croatia has been at the top of the travel holiday list for many wanderlusts out there because of its unique untouched nature, long history, and amazing scenery.

From the south to the east of the country, every inch is covered with some kind of historical landmark, amazing landscapes, delicious food, and luxury private villas to rent.

The country of Croatia is located at the crossing of Central and Southeast Europe on the Adriatic Sea. Her coastline which is over 1.800 kilometers long with over 1.100 islands and islets makes Croatia a true gem that needs to be added to every traveler’s passport.

When it comes to traveling, Croatia is definitely a place to see and relish. One of the ways to emerge in the country is to find a quiet and spacious luxury villa to lounge in and from there explore all the parts of Croatia.

For sure, stop one should be the Istrian Peninsula. We at Away to Croatia wanted to tell you something about this unexplored area.

ISTRIAN PENINSULA

One of the parts that need to have a special place in your travel itinerary is the only peninsula in Croatia – Istria or Istra as the locals call it. Istria or Istra has been known by her ancient Latin name – Histria and it is the largest peninsula in the Adriatic Sea.

Istrian peninsula borders with three countries – Croatia, Slovenia, and Italy which makes it easily accessible by car. If you are coming by car you will have no problem reaching one of the destinations on the peninsula, same if you are coming by airplane.
From the airport of Pula, you can be transported to any part of Istria in a matter of an hour.

Also, no need to be worried about what to bring, as we rest assured, you will have no problem with the climate of the Istrian peninsula as it is continental with no heat waves and enjoyable weather which makes it ideal for your perfect vacation.
The whole Istria is multilingual so do not be surprised if you see signs with Croatian and Italian words.

When in Istria here are some of our suggestions of what cities you need to have on your list:
