Istria, the peninsula in the west of Croatia, is a beautiful region, home of great wine and cuisine. Many towns of the rocky coast and hilly inland were populated in the prehistoric times, with monuments dating back to ancient Roman and medieval times. Besides sunbathing and swimming in the sea, sailing or diving, the inland of the peninsula is attracting more and more visitors due to its hospitality and delicious food. Many local specialties include the traditional Istrian ox boskarin, pasta and truffles, that can be found in the surrounding forests. So we will start our Istrian tour by visiting surroundings of the town Buzet, joining professionals on the quest for truffles! The path through the enchanting forest surrounding the estate is full of natural rocks for climbing, waterfalls and the underground holds hidden treasures – truffles. After the search, you will learn how to prepare delicious traditional meals with truffles – like tartufata, omelette and desserts – and of course, eat them!
Afterwards, we continue the trip by visiting Hum. With a population of around 20, Hum is the world’s smallest town. It is situated at the end of the road that tells the history of the alphabet Glagoljica, and connects it to the nearby Roč. In Hum, you can taste a special kind of herb and mistletoe grappa, made after the original, 2000 years old recipe.
After this delicious tour in the heart of Istria, we return to Zagreb.
