MARLERA WITH LANTERA NEAR LIŽNJAN

ISTRIADUCTION March| All Year | Free Entrance Wanting to get away from everyday life and recharge my batteries, I decided to take a walk to a not so popular place; Cape Marlere. Cape Marlera is located on the southeast side of the Istrian peninsula near Pula, more precisely Liznjan. It is famous for the lighthouse called Lanterna. The interesting thing is that you can also experience the magic of life in the lighthouse because it is rented to tourists, but also to all those who want peace and the sea. A pebble path leads to the lighthouse, and around you can see fields of kale or cabbage, vineyards, and if you are lucky sheep or other animals and if you come in the spring like me, then you will surely enjoy the wild daffodil flowers of which there are thousands. And of course the sea. All in all, a beautiful promenade and something that is not an everyday tourist attraction.

MEDULIN POND

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 February | All Year | Free Entrance You want to walk along with the most beautiful, most famous, most attractive, as easy as it is demanding trail in Istria. Then the obligatory trail is seven waterfalls in Buzet.

ISTRIAN DESERT NEAR ŠTERNA

ISTRIADUCTION In September| Weekend | Free Entrance Did you know that Istria also has its own desert? Near the town of Šterna not far from Grožnjan is the 'Istrian desert', which consists of "dunes" of marl or tašela, as this fine-grained sedimentary rock is often called in Istria. Although in Istria, especially in its central and northern part, we often come across such parts of the landscape, here we are talking about a unique concentration of such forms on a fairly large area.

BRIJUNI NATIONAL PARK NEAR FAŽANA

ISTRIADUCTION September| Weekend| Pay per Entrance Thinking about what to visit and explore this weekend, I decided to head to our only National Park - Brijuni. Brijuni is a set of small islands, the largest of which is the island of Veliki Brijun, where you are if you visit this place. You can reach Brijuni by boat, so you need to buy tickets before boarding the boat. It is obligatory to wear masks on board. Tickets can be purchased right next to the boat dock in Fažana or online. The price of the ticket varies depending on what age group you belong to and in what time period you visit Brijuni. My advice to you is to buy a ticket during the promo months when the ticket price is much lower. The promo ticket price for September was 125kn, while the full price is 230kn. Among other things, when the period is promo prices, the prices of bicycles, electric cars, etc. are also reduced. You can visit Brijuni accompanied by a guide in the language of your choice, and then the tour is done by train and the tour lasts 3-4 hours; or

RELAXED WALK ON RT KAMENJAK IN PREMANTURA

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

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
