Istrian sunset

Istria is the largest Croatian peninsula, located on the northern part of the Adriatic, on the territory of Slovenia, Croatia and Italy. According to some sources, the name of the region derives from name of the Illyrian tribe Histri who lived in that area. The Romans called it Terra Magica. Since the region has a rich Roman history, it is the location of many buildings from that era. Most of the preserved Roman monuments are found in Pula: August temple dedicated to the goddess Roma and Emperor Augustus, the town forum, Hercules Gate, the Twin Gates, Triumphal Arch, Roman theater, amphitheater for gladiatorial combats.
