Myths and Legends of Istria
One of many legends about the magical history of this part of the country is that once upon a time Istra was build by the giants who athered stones and built towns on beautiful green hills. Her enchanting beauty is still present today; sleepy stone villages atop emerald hills wake up covered by veils of fog, caressed in the gentle tenderness of the sun’s warm rays.
Istra’s rich history is deeply rooted in legend and folklore. Medieval stone villages scattered atop its rolling emerald hills are rumored to be built by benevolent giants, one of the most famous being Veli Jože (Big Joseph).
