Sports events in Istria
On December 15, 1902, a train covered the route between Buje and Poreč for the first time, driving along the at the time new narrow gauge railroad Parenzana. It was thus that the second section of the railroad previously connecting Trieste and Poreč was put into operation. With the total length of 123 kilometres, it wound through the green landscapes of northwestern Istria, connecting 33 Istrian settlements.
Is there a healthier way to start out the New Year than participating in the afternoon MTB Ride, an event that Northwestern Istria has hosted for the past 1O years, on the first day of January? Probably not, if you ask recreation and nature lovers who regularly take part in this festive sports event.
