I believe everybody knows the sweet misfortunes experienced before going on a journey. You know what I’m talking about: deciding what to take and how much of it, when to head out – and that classic moment that can best be described: “Uh, did we forget something?”.
But when the bags are packed, and the “logistics” all planned and checked, the most important question is: how to best spend time in order to see and experience as much as possible? If you are going to spend the summer in Northwestern Istria (and of course you are!), your holiday planning has been made really easy thanks to the Discover #ColoursOfIstria aggregator which delivers wonderful moments captured in Umag, Novigrad, Buje, Brtonigla, and the surrounding area.
What’s best, these are all photos taken by someone like you, someone who decided to share their experience of the destination via social networks. The aggregator collects images posted on Instagram by visitors and residents of Northwestern Istria, with #ColoursOfIstria, #ColoursOfSport, #ColoursOfFood, #ColoursOfWine, #ColoursOfWellness and #ColoursOfNature hashtags.
If you cannot decide which beach or which wellness to visit, or which snack to choose, or wether to ride a bike or go jogging in the morning, Discover is here to help you with ideas. User photos will also reveal that in Novigrad you definitely need to see colorful umbrellas that decorate the streets of the historic old town, as well as take a walk along the city walls right by the sea.
You will also find that the Buje belfry provides a breathtaking view, and that Umag is particularly romantic at dawn while houses in Brtonigla come in all colors. Of course, you will also be able to gain many ideas of how to eat well in this part of Istria. There are very few today who can resist sharing their enthusiasm of the top-notch Istrian food via Instagram.
