Old town of Umag

Old town of Umag

ADDRESS / LOCATION

Umag

The old town of Umag offers a look into the history of Umag, from the ancient times right through to the modern period. The beauty of this destination was recognised by Roman noblemen who chose this part of Istria as the perfect location for their vacation homes. The departure of the Romans was followed by a turbulent period – the town was passed from the hands of one ruler to another for centuries. The cobbled streets are lined with elaborately ornate and splendid Venetian villas from the period of Venetian rule, and you will find sights dating from such turbulent past times at every step. If you would like to take a break from sightseeing, visit one of the traditional Istrian taverns (konoba), offering various types of fish and meat dishes, as well as quality wines and olive oils. Take a walk down the narrow alleys and paved squares and discover the rich historical and cultural heritage of the old town of Umag.

We recommend the following:

  • Exploring the medieval city walls
  • Visiting Marin Gallery, featuring pieces from some of the most famous Croatian artists
  • Umag Town Museum, located in a preserved medieval defence tower 
  • St Rocco’s Church featuring a painted ceiling 
  • St Mary’s Church that has valuable frescos
  • Sepomaia Viva – international antique festival

Kabola wine

Kabola wine

ADDRESS / LOCATION

Buje

Kabola wines and olive oils are the result of the hard work and family traditions that span more than a century. The story begins back in 1891, and the family’s bottle of Muškat momjanski from that year bears witness to this.

The vineyards from which Kabola wines arrive are located near Momjan, in an area famous for wine growing. The specific climate of the Istrian hinterland and the clay soil rich in marl give the wines a recognisable flavour and aroma that convey the region and its specificities.

Apart from the wines, Kabola also makes olive oil, which is produced from the autochthonous sort of Istarska bjelica mixed with Leccina and Pendolina. Due to a special processing and production technique, this oil has a characteristic flavour and goes best with seafood and homemade Istrian delicacies such as prosciutto and sheep cheese.

Visit the tasting room on the picturesque hills deep in Green Istria, near Momjan, and enjoy the tasting of Kabola wines and olive oils.
