Istria - Kroatias vakre halvøy



Langs nordkysten av Kroatia ligger halvøya Istria. Det meste av halvøya er kroatisk, men en liten kystlinje på grensen til Italia hører til Slovenia. Langs kysten ligger det flotte middelalderbyer fra Pula i sør til Piran i nord.

Halvøya bærer preg av å ha Italia som nærmeste nabo. Her kan du nyte italiensk iskrem og espresso på de mange fortausrestaurantene.

I Pula i syd er det et romersk amfiteater fra det første århundre som er verdt et besøk.



Litt lenger nord ligger den flotte middelalderbyen Rovinj. Byen ligger på en liten halvøy og er et vakkert skue med sine bratte gater og den flotte katedralen St Euphemia som er et naturlig midtpunkt i den lille byen. Til tross for at Rovinj er en populær ferieby, har den beholdt sitt særpreg. Her kommer fiskerne fortsatt inn med fangsten sin på morgenen og lokalbefolkningen lever side om side med turistene.

Vannet er krystallklart og selv om Rovinj har sin egen bystrand er det finest å leie en sykkel og finne sin egen klippe hvor man kan stupe ut i sjøen fra. Det gjorde vi og jeg holdt på kollidere med en naturist på sykkel. Sandaler hadde han på, men klærne hadde han lagt igjen hjemme.



I den slovenske delen av Istria ligger den stemningsfulle middeladerbyen Piran. Byen har beholdt mye av sin middelalderstruktur, med trange gater og små hus fra kysten og opp til toppen av byen. Pirans største torg, er oppkalt etter den velkjente fiolinisten og komponisten Guiseppe Tartini som hadde sitt fødested nettopp her.

Det er mindre turister i Piran enn i Rovinj og i de trange gatene henger klesvaksen til tørk i solen. Her kan man overnatte privat og føle seg som en del av lokalbefolkningen for noen få dager.



Inne landet ligger dryppstenshulene i Postonja. Hulesystemet er det største i Slovenia med over 8500 huler. Her finnes stalakitter i alle slags farger og formasjoner og du kan beundre dem fra et lite elektrisk tog som har sett sine beste dager. Hulene har hatt over tredve millioner besøkende siden sin offisielle oppdagelse i 1818 og sies å være de mest besøkte i Europa. Med en voksehastighet på stalakittene på 0,1-0,3 millimeter i året, har naturen dråpe for dråpe skapt de mest vidunderlige skulpturer. Hulene er også kjent for den blinde, gjennomsiktige "menneskefisken" Proteus Anguinus. Fisken ligner mer på et foster enn et menneske. Sjelden er den nok, men vakker kan den ikke påberope seg å være.
