   organize the trip through Istria

Umag, a town and a port in the north-west coast of Istria, is a kind of exit and entrance of Croatia to Europe. This famous business and tourist center is at only 40 km from Trieste, 150 from Ljubljana, and 50 NM from Venice.
Development of Umag is best evidenced by the world famous ATP tour, a tennis tournament taking place right here every year. In terms of tourism, the hinterland of Umag is very attractive although it is a still undiscovered location between two Istrian rivers, namely the Dragonja and the Mirna surrounded by the rivieras of Savudria and Umag, and that of Novigrad. Sunbathed beaches and luxurious hotels are only part of the offer. Alternative programs offer a variety of activities to make your stay rich in attractions.
Enjoy mountain climbing, spelunking, cycling, or a simple walk. Get to know the secrets of the sea, go sailing, swimming and diving. Ride a horse and feel the spirit of adventure. Fly and see these incredibly beautiful sights! Welcome to Umag and its surroundings!

Through many centuries the church was taking care and has preserved for the future the priceless artistical patrimony - done by human hands and intellect. The others in this area didn't achieve the same, or at least not in the same measure, becouse fo certain inconveniences.
This "booklet" will only briefly inform you about a hundred churches in this area that are carefully keeping the sacral patrimony. If anyone wants to be taught about the patrimony, he has to enter these churches and will discover different styles of architectonis, fresco pictures, oil masterpieces, statues, beautiful alters, chorues, organs, chalices, reliquaries, vestments, books and lots of written documents. Each of these churches is a story, history and life of this area and people, particulary of man's existence.

It is said that it were Phoenicians and the ancient Greeks who brought wine to Istria. The ancient autochtonous inhabitants of Istria, Histrians, successfully mastered the skills of growing the precious plant, as well as the skills of the wine production. Among many sorts of wine in this region, the most important are the Istrian white malvasia, as well as the typical Istrian teran, followed by red borgonja, red hrvatica, and many world-famous quality sorts of wine like white pinot, chardonnay, grey pinot, red merlot, refošk and cabernet sauvignon. It would be a sin to forget the two sorts of muscat, the Momjanski and the Porečki.
Therefore, it is not wonder that in Bujština, the region in Istria between two rivers, Dragonja and Mirna, one of the most famous wine-roads in Croatia can be found, with as many as 22 well-known producers of Istrian wine.

What is the Istrian cuisine?
Does it mean dishes that the Istrian peasants used to eat in ancient times? Or, maybe, those dishes once prepared in patrician houses? All of there and a lot of more, since the stormy Istrian history has left its traces in the cuisine, too. Different traditions have been entangled in Istrian national cuisine, which has its basis in the nature (aromatic spices, wild plants, vegetables, sea food), but it was influenced by Frankish and German rules, too, Serenissima, Roman dishes, and certainly by the Slavic influence from the East. Fish, shellfish and mollusca used to make the basis of the coastal cuisine once. But today in Istria on the very coast, one can be offered sauerkraut, baked sausages and ombolo, as well as gnocchi hare-meat, fuži with venison, macaroni with sausage sauce. Istrian smoked ham and sheep cheese are irreplacable, both dry-smoked by the mixture of alpine and mediterranean air and blessed by the bora from the Gulf of Trieste. Different sorts of minestre, jota and fritaja make the most distinctive flavours and fragrances of this area. And at the end of the feast the obligatory Istrian delicacies: pinca, fritule, kroštule...
At the pinnacle of Istrian gastronomy, the truffle of Istria, his majesty, nobody knows whether it is food or spice! in the year 1999 the biggest and the heaviest truffle was found in Istria (1,31 kg) which has entered into the Guiness book of records. All of these can easily be found within reach in more than five hundered restaurants in Istria, many of which can be found in the Bujština region close to Umag, the famous Croatian tourist destination. So many quality restaurants, taverns, pizzerias, pastry-shops are no wonder, since the development of tourism half a century ago began with the development of restaurants. At present, some names of restaurants have the significance of institutions of the area. We shall name only a few, without any logical or chronological order: Bruno, Maruzza, Toni, Badi, Dante, Koralj, Kristal, Giovanni, Buščina, Valica, Kažun, Kremenje and many more.
For hospitality's sake and to help you in this adventure of Istrian food and beverages, we have prepared this guidebook along with our good wine and good apetite!
Welcome to Umag and its surroundings!
