About "Istria from Smrikve" cultural travel guide and E-book


IN "ISTRIA FROM SMRIKVE" you can discover...

...more about Istrian culture and its development over the centuries; the history of Istrian towns and villages, Istrian architecture and music as well as Istrian Mediterranean food, Istrian olive oil, considered one of the best in the Roman Empire, and Istrian wine, the preferred one of Livia Drusilla - also known as Julia Augusta - the wife of the Emperor Augustus.

The melting pot of various civilisations created today’s Istrian culture, which is visible in Istrian buildings and monuments spread all over the territory. You can still feel prehistoric times, the glorious days of the Roman and Byzantine Empires, Charlemagne’s kingdom, the period of the Aquileia Patriarchs, the Venetian Republic, the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy and more recent times. Tito used the Istrian Brioni Islands as a World policy stage to launch the Non-Aligned Movement and thus insure the continuity of Istria’s rich culture.
