If you get the chance to visit the Northen most part of Adriatic there is lots of interesting things to see. It’s better to visit it in low season when it is not so hot, because the water is not exactly clean to jump into, though it depends where you are.

We went for a short ride with a boat from marina Nautec in Monfalcone to Duino Castle and back. To visit the Castle you have to call ahead, and in winter time it is only open during weekends ‘till 4pm. During summer it’s open every day ‘till 4pm, except Tuesdays.

Under the castle there is a nice beach with a fabulous cliff above it and the water was clean enough to jump into it, only there were lots of very large jelly fish floating around…

Ribic is Slovenian word for Fisherman my host told me, when he took me to this restaurant in Secovlje.

He assured me that this was once again one of the best restaurants on Slovenian coast though their quality wavered in the past. And he was right about the first part as far as I was concerned.

For starter we had the octopus salad, haddock pate, scallops and anchovies and they were all delicious. For main course we had, approx. 2 pound Redfish with potato and a delicious sauce, all baked in an oven. With all that we drank about a liter of Malvazija white wine and coffee after that. There was no room for desert, though I was tempted.

I don’t know exactly how much we (he) paid but it was roughly around 80 Euros, so that’s not too much to spoil oneself from time to time.

Oh, the pan was already half empty when I remembered to take a photo… sorry for that.

The most western point of Croatia and the former Yugoslavia is the Savudria lighthouse, built in 1818, when it was commissioned by the Austrian emperor Franz I. The antennas for the mobile phones and the IR sensors are of a later date, of course. And, judging by the clothelines, it is still populated.

Also, the Savidria autocamp seems to have expanded all the way to the lighthouse. It is really well maintained, with nice plots and garvel pathways. It must be nice to look at the beam at night….

A friend took me to Secovlje Salina on Slovenian coast.

They still make lots of salt here and have a nice museum and walking paths, where you can watch autochthonous species of birds, some of them really nice looking.

You need a few hours if you want to see the whole Salina, because it’s pretty big but it’s worth the couple of euros.

Last weekend we went to the tavern Maruzzella in Zambratija. It’s right by the roadside, with a big parking lot, opened all year and accepts credit cards.

It is about half a mile from the Zambratija pear, where you can land with smaller boats.

In short – it was good. We paid the classic a little over 500 Kn, their home made brad is a big plus as is the fact that their mixed mussels really include a variety of different sorts and the buzara sauce is well prepared.

The black risotto had some spice issues, but the grilled sole made up for it. Sadly, the desert was store-bought so we would be better off to skip that.

All in all, it is well worth a visit, certainly in you are in Zambratija and the really acceptable price definitely outweights the small faults.

Lunch by the sea

Unlike the north coast, where you’ll only find a hotel and a view of the marina, the south coast of Umag hides several rastaurants (konoba), well protected from the bora (NE wind), where you can sit and enjox the auntumn sun.

We didn’t mind the menu with photos; we even got over the fact that there was no bakalar. There was, however, some excellent biska and medica, octopus salad, slaty sardelles and some more fish, mixed side dishes, and, of course, malvazija. And two sorbets. 250 Kn (35 €) per person seems like a good price for the pleasure we got, enjoying ourselves by the sea.

Meanwhile the Italians to the left gulped down their shrimps and the Germans to the right their mixed grill: everybody was happy. It was 100% more peaceful than Piran, and a bonazza instead of bora.

The food may not be exceptional, but the location is nice and well maintained It will tempt you to stay there instead of proceeding further into Istra. We also give extra marks for a really pleasant service.

Plavi Podrum is a restaurant in Volosko, near Opatija known for its outstanding cuisine.
We were pretty hungry so we started with dipping bread into different kinds of olive oil. The bread was totally black as if it was made with squid ink.

The real starter were shrimps with pines on rocket bed , the other was thin sliced mushrooms and tuna fillets also on rocket bed. Merlot sorbet was very interesting and the foam made of Campari juice.

With this we had some Malvazija – dry white wine of Veralda family.
There was risotto with shrimps from Dalmatia and asparagus mixed in for second course. It was accompanied by Sauvignon from Korak vineyard.

Third course was goose liver, soft as butter and ba bass filet and cod in a chunky tortellini which we dipped into a zucchini sauce. With that we enjoyed 2006 Pošip wine from Korta Katarina.

And desert: chocolate mousse with vanilla ice cream and a few drops of olive oil. Odd but tasty combination.

We tried a few sorts of red vine – I remember 2007 Postup from Pelješac peninsula.
It really was a unforgettable culinary experience.

I found these postcards from Rovinj my mom had stashed in a shoe box. When I visited Rovinj about a year ago it was a totally different sight. Even old towns such as Rovinj are slowly but constantly changing.
On the last photo taken from the curch hilltop, there was no marina yet and no ugly hotels.
