in Istra

During the whole year, and especially during the summer, there are numerous events in Istria that enrich the social life of numerous tourists coming from all over the world.

Rovinj Photodays, a tradition started in 2008, is the biggest photography festival in Croatia that lasts throughout the whole year. Not only can the visitors see various exhibitions, but they can also participate in different workshops and win a photoroute as a prize.  

Romantics will definitely want to see the famous meteor shower, the so-called "Tears of St. Lawrence". It is the night when countless meteors and shooting stars can be observed in the sky. Romantic hearts on squares and streets, and romantic songs are a testament to Rovinj's romantic soul. 

Movie buffs will not want to miss the Motovun Film Festival, which has been taking place in the town of Motovun since 1999. Unlike many other film festivals, Motovun Film Festival is not about glamour, the red carpet and VIPs - film screenings are held outdoors, under the open sky.
