ISTRIADUCTION December | Free Entrance One of the best fish taverns in Istria is located in Banjole. An ideal example of a combination of local gastronomic offers and a nice ambiance. Arrival at the tavern was announced in advance and a table was waiting for us on the terrace. We offer freshly caught fish and seafood. The offer for starters includes a colorful range of fish, including sardines, flounder, octopus, shark, and sardines, all dosed and presented by a friendly waiter. After the starter, we tasted homemade shrimp ravioli in bisque and grilled scallops. For the very end, we took grilled mixed fish from "orada" to "trilja".

ISTRIADUCTION February | All Year | Free Entrance Medulin pond is a small lake inhabited by various animal and plant species. The first records of the pond date from 1563. It used to be connected to the sea by a canal, so the old Medulin people hunted eels in a pond. As things stand now the water is less than before and there is no mixing with the sea water, but even now the puddle can be up to 7 meters deep in the central part. With such a deep pond, it can be said that Medulin has a little "lake" atmosphere in addition to the sea. Today there are about 20 feathered animals, there are turtles in the pond that approach people who come nearby. and a pair of herons.An ideal place to let your brain graze and enjoy the oasis of nature.According to the data of Regional Express in this beautiful place we can thank Marin Saric who brought the animals from Slavonia.

ISTRIADUCTION August | Summer| Pay per Entrance Rt Kamenjak is a protected nature area located in the southernmost part of the Istrian peninsula. Between dinosaur trails, secluded beaches, beautiful landscapes, sea caves, and islands – it's impossible to be bored. Kayaking is a great way to explore this area, especially the islands and the sea caves. It's even more enjoyable on hot summer days when you don't feel like walking in the heat. Istrakayak is one of the companies you can rent kayaks from or participate in guided tours to the sea caves. The starting point is Školjić ,a small bay inside the park, fairly close to the islands and the caves. When participating in a guided tour, you'll sightsee all the beauties directly from the sea while paddling. You can expect to swim in the crystal clear water inside the cave and observe the sea life when snorkeling. It's a great feeling being able to come that close to the underwater world. Right next to the cave, there are cliffs everybody loves to jump from and feed their adrenaline. Also, there's a lot of interesting facts you'll find out from the local
ISTRIADUCTION In September| Weekend | Pay per Entrance Another jewel of our beautiful Istria is certainly Cape Kamenjak. The southernmost point of Istria, indented coast, beautiful beaches and blue sea, is certainly something worth enjoying. Entrance to the cape itself is charged, and the ticket price depends on the means of transport (it is free for pedestrians) and the number of days on which the ticket is purchased. The ticket for one day, for a car is 80kn and that day you can stay at the cape until 22h. Along with the ticket itself, you will also receive an information brochure and two garbage bags. Since the cape itself has many beaches, our choice this time was Toreta beach. The beach is located on the open sea, has a view of a small island and a lighthouse behind it, the sea is crystal clear, as evidenced by the presence of sea urchins in the shallows. Due to the fact that it is a wild beach, access to the sea was not very accessible, so for all future visitors I recommend wearing some kind of water slippers. The beach itself has little shade so

ISTRIADUCTION In June | No Working time | Free Entrance Who doesn’t like to fish when you are in Istria?! We love fishing as a sport and as the time to relax. After we bought a permit we went to the Gornji Kamenjak. It was a wonderful day for fishing. First, you will see beautiful landscapes merged with sun, sea, and nature. After a couple of beautiful photos, it is time to find the right place to set all your fishing gear. We bought the bait and ready to throw it into the sea.
