Maneštra s bobići, ombolo, frkanci are a few examples of the awkward names of specialties which taste as if they had fallen right off the tables of the ancient
gods. Oysters, fish, seafood of all kinds and varieties, wild asparagus, maruni chestnuts – they are all there, too. And, of course, the king: His Majesty, Tuber Magnatum Pico – the white truffle. We’ll gladly present you how it is being collected with the help of the hogs or the dogs in the Truffle Hunt.
Istria is also the homeland of some of the world's best (as the ever-growing collection of gold medals
shows) wines and olive oils. They are all there to be tasted, enjoyed and learned about.
Of course, Istria is much more than gastronomy. You’ll experience the hilltop town timeless atmosphere
(one of them recently had a 17% population growth, reaching a total of 22 inhabitants), Vincent (John)
of Kastav Dance Macabre frescoes and other legend-inspiring places. A visit to the scene of gladiator
fights, the famous Arena in Pula, or a stroll through a splendid town of Rovinj and a walk through its
narrow winding streets, a perpetual inspiration to artistic souls, isn’t all enough of a bait for you to
come, see and experience?
