In the new winter edition, specialised American travel magazine Ultratravel has named Istria as one of the top destinations that travellers must-visit in 2022.
Author Lauren Ho lists the destinations around the world that should be found on the radar of readers in 2022, which along with Istria, include world destinations such as Cape Town, Kyūshū, Valencia, the Lower Manhattan Harbor area (NYC), Hong Kong, Oslo and Nashville.
The author states that Croatia is often recognised by cities such as Dubrovnik or Split, while Istria, a heart-shaped peninsula, captivates with its bucolic and undulating landscape, scattered hilly towns, romantic cycling experiences and culinary delights, such as truffles, extra virgin olive oil and wine, the Istria Tourist Board said.
The article also emphasised the ICARUS project, an offer intended for cyclists that enables train traffic in which passengers can bring their bicycles and thus explore most of the peninsula. Pula’s Zerostrasse is also mentioned as an attraction with a new elevator that leads from the underground to the very heart of Kaštela, from where visitors can enjoy Pula.
Among other things, Rovinj stands out as a gourmet mecca with another, newly won Michelin star, which, along with Monte, was also earned by the Agli Amici restaurant.
Pazin, on the other hand, is presented on an effective double spread in a magical atmosphere of sunrise with a view of the famous castle.
All this is connected with the continuity in the process of repositioning and restructuring Istria and networking marketing activities with prestigious world media houses, such as: Luxury Travel Magazine, Forbes, The New York Times, and recently a new partnership with a leading association in luxury travel Virtuos.
“We are looking forward to every new positive announcement that promotes our destination and encourages travellers to come here to have an unforgettable experience as published by the renowned Ultratravel magazine,” said the director of the Istrian Tourist Board Denis Ivošević.
