More and more people decide to spend part of their vacation in nature, engaging in sports activities, hiking or cycling. Istria is one of the most ideal destinations precisely because of the number of well-maintained trails, which stretch across the entire peninsula. One of the most attractive trails is Parenzana. The former railway that connected three states is now arranged as a pedestrian and bicycle path. It was active from 1902. to 1935., between Croatia, Slovenia and Italy.
The attractiveness of Parenzana lies in the numerous tunnels and viaducts, which were necessary for the traffic of the former railway. The path also leads past numerous olive groves, vineyards, as well as small towns that are on its way. A real gastronomic challenge lies ahead of you. Let olive oil, Istrian wine, truffles and delicious Istrian specialties be your choice in the taverns and small Istrian farms that are scattered along the way around Parenzana. For all those who want to discover something more about Parenzana, its historical and economic significance for Istria, there is also the Parenzana Museum in Livade.
