Istria – The second most beautiful European tourist region

8 November 2011 No Comment

The editorial staff of the German edition of Diners Club Magazine awarded Istria a high second place in its traditional Diners Club Magazine Award competition, in the category of “the most beautiful tourist regions of Europe”. Istria competed with 16 other finalists, among which were well known destinations such as Cote d’Azur, Tuscany and Andalusia.

The editorial staff of the magazine nominates the candidates in each category while the final decision for the winner is left to the readers who may vote for their favorites in writing or on the website of the magazine. More than 70 000 readers responded to the last vote and chose South Tyrol as the most beautiful tourist region in Europe. Other finalists, with Istria among them, were awarded silver acknowledgements.

This is yet another recognition for the largest Croatian peninsula, which has recently been placed in the high second place by The Lonely Planet, the world’s leading travel guide, in the selection of the world`s ten most desirable regions. Egyptian Sinai is the only one which came in front of Istria.
