Jedna od najvecih hotelijersko-turistickih kuca u Istri

Istraturist is a company with a forty years tradition of tourism.




I have been guest at Sol Koralj Hotel last year, participating at the concert  "Najbolje od Nas"  - Toni Cetinski and Friends. From food, to hospitality everyone at the hotel passed the test of the tourist from the west. I wholeheartedly recommend your staying at those hotels, especially if you are visiting during Croatia Open, because it is just few minutes walk as they say Lungomare. Boardwalk near the blue Adriatic sea.
