Istra ( Istria ), the largest Croatian peninsula, is like an island full of treasures waiting to be discovered. Its rocky coast reaches from the Kvarner Bay on the east to the Trieste Bay in the west and Istria's enchanted state of the Mediterranean spirit lures travelers and tourists with its hospitality.

Pazin Gymnasium CrownOn the occasion of 110th anniversary of the Gymnasium and vocational school Juraj Dobrila Pazin, on 17th October 2009, the famous photographer Sime Strikoman made the Millennium photo titled "Pazin gymnasium crown”. About 800 professors and graduates who were educated there since 1950 until 2004 posed in front of the school. They formed the shape of the crown because the school was established as the Imperial and Royal public secondary school in Pazin, and the form is taken from the stone crest of family Auersperg and Herberstain, carved on the Pazin castle. Strikoman made its 181st Millennium picture from a height of 25 meters, with the cranes of Usluga ltd. Poreč.
