Macrolocation - Istria

The county of Istria consists of the largest part of the istrian peninsula with a total of 2820 m2. A small part of Istria belongs to the Republic of Slovenia. 204 346 inhabitants live in the croatian part of Istria (250 000 in whole county of Istria). The population is mainly concentrated in 7 towns (124 899 inhabitants), of which 30,5 % live in the city of Pula. All larger towns in Istria are located on the coast and are all well known croatian tourist resorts: Rovinj, Porec, Pula, Medulin, Umag, Rabac.

The coast is 190 km long, rocky and mostly covered with mediterranean forests. More than 3000 years of rich european history are saved in archeological remains. The first known inhabitants accepted early Roman culture, and later contacts with the Republic of Venice and the Austro-Hungarian monarchy have kept Istria within the European historical development. Archeological remains show Istria to be one of the earliest-populated parts of Europe, but also point out the need for further exploration.

Istria is geographically and geometrically situated in the center of Europe, where the sea cuts deepest in the mainland. A circle of 250 km encircling Istria would reach 14 states. A 500 km circle would reach 30 states with more than 350 000 000 people. Istria is equally distant from the North Pole and the Equator, situated on the 45th northern parallel. The climate is mediterranean, mild, with some elements of the continental in the inner parts of the peninsula. There are no significant temperature amplitudes. The landscape varies from the mountain massives of Uèka and Æiæarija on the north-east to the plains near the sea on the west of the peninsula.

A part of the land in Premantura's vicinity is cultivated, mostly with vegetables and grapes (from which several types of wine are produced including Malvazija and Teran), and the surrounding forests are rich with mushrooms during the entire year. Wild asparagus is one of the most famous Istrian dishes and it attracts many tourists (mostly Italian) during the picking season.
