CHEESE EXPERIENCE @ VESNA LOBORIKA

ISTRIADUCTION December | Free Entrance Just a 10 minute drive from Pula city centre and a couple of minutes away from Pula airport  you can taste the prized Istrian cheeses of Vesna Loborika. Once you arrive at the tavern in  Loborika the best you can do is to order the cheese board for starter. Since I’m a pasta lover, for the main course I tried the Vesna’s homemade Ravioli with cheese which were very tasty and cheesy as I expected it to be. My wife ordered local pasta fuži  with truffles which were a nice mixture of cream and truffles. After lunch we headed to the cheese shop next by and bought some of their cheeses and olive oil.  The waiter told us that they have shops in Pula  central market and Veruda market as well. We will surely visit them in the future. MORE ISTRIAGO COLLECTIONS

KALAVOJNA & LUKA BAY IN RAKALJ

ISTRIADUCTION In August | Weekend | Free Entrance The part of Istria that is definitely worth visiting in the summer months is definitely Rakalj. He delighted me. I was on two beaches; Kalavojni and Luki beaches. Kalavojna can be reached by car to the beach. On one side are huge rocks where people sunbathe, while on the other side of the shore are small pebbles with trees that create a pleasant shade when it gets hot. The sea is clean and beautiful blue. The best thing is that although the beach looks great, it is not crowded with people and it is always possible to find your own place to enjoy it. Luka beach is located towards Stari Rakalj. It can be reached in two ways. You can either leave the car on the road above the beach and walk to the bottom of the path (approx. 20min) or you can walk along the path of Sjepan Hauser, where the beach is then part of the path. Along the coast there is an old, sunken ship which is an attraction in itself, so it's cool to dive to it and explore it a
