Istria map will help you to get familiarized with this peninsula only dozens of kilometers from Italy, bordering with Republic of Slovenia.
Being very close to Italy , Istria has a strong Italian flavor. Practically local people speak Italian fluently and don’t be surprised if you come in July or August to see streets crowded with Italian visitors.
Istria is often called green and blue peninsula. The Blue one is the part along the Adriatic coast from Umag to Pula. The green one is the fraction of internal medieval cities where the mountain valleys appear light green and tan. It's sometimes compared with famous Italian Tuscany region. On Wikipedia you can read more about Istria region.
The Blue Istria with its beautiful beaches is rather crowded during summer months but I highly recommend to visit magnificent Istria's interior following very simple itinerary.
