Marianne Camille Srebrenka Cvitkovic is an Erasmus student from the IESA Art & Culture School in Paris, who is spending spring semester academic year 2019/2020 at Juraj Dobrila University of Pula and is actively exploring Istria and Croatia through travel courses. In an interesting eno-gastronomic travelogue, she compared the tourist offer of Dalmatia and Istria, commented on the problem of summer crowds, and was especially intrigued by Istrian delicacies!
Sightseeing in Croatia is like falling in love at first sight. I have visited most of the islands, bigger cities, mountains in the past, but apparently, I have never had a chance to explore Istria. That’s why I decided to choose Pula as a city for my Erasmus+ program. Before the whole Coronavirus situation began, I had an excellent opportunity to visit most of the Istria, it was easy because back then I didn’t have any lessons, so I could focus of fulfilling my dreams and sightseeing. I am the one who is constantly on the run, I was never the one who spent holidays only sunbathing. Because of that in three weeks since I came to Pula, I was able to witness extraordinary places, landscapes, eat tasty dishes. I wanted to go back to that time and simply write some kind of a guide, but also include my personal memories, opinions and recommendations. So, here we go.
