Vrsar is a small municipality along the coast of the Adriatic Sea on the Istrian peninsula. We spent the first part of our Croatian trip on the peninsula and as one of my good friend is a local, she became our tour guide and drove us around the place.
Even though I have been to Istria before, I have never visited Vrsar. Therefore it was the perfect opportunity to discover another beautiful, charming little settlement. There is something about stone-walled houses that makes me feel that I stepped into another space and time. The trees and the flowers only helped in creating this feeling.
The old town of Vrsar is set atop a hill, thus making the streets steep and narrow and if you are a first-time visitor, you feel like you are walking around a maze. The cultural scene is alive in Vrsar as it gives home to a lot of events, such as the festival of love and erotica, also known as Casanovafest in June.
When we were not on the beach and enjoying the sea and the sun, we went on a boat trip to Rovinj, watched the semifinals of Euro2016 in Porec and checked out two marvelous little towns on top of two hills in the center of Istria.
I was happy that I was able to re-visit Croatia and to discover the country with the help of two locals! Hvala!
