Riviera Raša

The two adjacent Rivieras of Marcana and Rasa combines over one thing: their idyllic location on the east coast of Istria, away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist resorts on the west coast. Here, small fishing villages and rolling hills, lush green fields and highly indented, embossed hidden coves and high coastal cliffs invite you to discover and to escape from the everyday life. For example, lying inland on the Marcana plateau, you will be promised above all, peace and tranquility in this unexplored part of Istria. If you rent a holiday home or a room in a boarding house here, you will get to know not only the traditional rural life but also this excellent starting point for trips into the gently rolling countryside. In the countryside you will find prehistoric remains and the coast, where natural, hidden beaches, crystal clear waters and green bays entice you to come in for a splash or swim. Incidentally, its location and climate are particularly well suited for the treatment of rheumatic diseases. In Duga Uvala there is a corresponding treatment center (and a modern resort including spa facilities). Also Rakelj is an undiscovered pearl of Marcana Riviera. An introduction to the authentic Istrian cuisine in any quaint restaurants is an experience not to miss!

Just as rurally characterized and largely unexplored is the Rasa Riviera which adjoins the Marcana Riviera in the north. The coastal region, with dreamy resorts such as Ravni and Sveta Marina, are, at the least, as comparable with their neighboring Riviera. In late spring and in the fall, the mild climate and crystal clear waters lure visitors in for bathing and swimming, snorkeling and diving; the hidden coves to relax, and the vast forests for hiking and cycling. Windsurfers find very good conditions here, especially in spring and autumn. A small curiosity is the town of Rasa further inland. The youngest city in Istria is actually a planned city, built by the architect Gustavo Pulitzer Finali

The youngest city in Istria is actually a planned city, built by the architect Gustavo Pulitzer Finali for the masses of miners that had been expected to come due to large coal reserves. The only ones that still have memories of the mining town are the workers' houses - and the city arms which has a miner's lamp. Where the families of the miners once worked and lived are now inhabited by producers of traditionally inspired pottery dishes.
