Repeatedly, north-western Istria captivates guests with its intoxicating tastes and scents, hidden places and events.
If you are spending time here during the autumn, take the opportunity of trying our wide range of dishes based on sole. This high quality white fish is locally called "švoj", hence the name of the event.
Over the years, Sole Days became one of the symbols of northwestern Istria, as confirmed by numerous visitors who return to Istrian soles in Autumn. In 2017, as many as 16 recognized restaurants and taverns offered their menus - a certain sign that soles are one of the most popular foods from the blue Adriatic.
Lasting an entire month, the Sole Fish Days takes place in the many restaurants and wine cellars of Umag, Novigrad, Buje and Brtonigla. Here you will find course meals based on sole, served with quality wine and olive oil from the region.
The sole has thus become an inspiration, encouraging cooks to try out new creations and combinations. Chefs reach for the stars and let their imagination run wild, raising the gastronomic experience to new levels - all in the name of this noble fish, characteristic of the north-western part of the Istrian peninsula.
The sole shines in all its glory, bringing a new dimension to the intricate weave of Istrian culinary.
We invite you to visit the northwest of Istria during Sole Fish Days and to enjoy all the delicacies with a good glass of wine made by excellent Istrian winemakers.
