End EuroVelo 9 in the best possible way by cycling through the beautiful hills and valleys of Istria in Croatia and finishing in front of the famous Roman amphitheatre in Pula. The route takes you through the picturesque interior of the Istrian peninsula known for its vineyards and hilltop towns. Among towns and cities on the route stands out Buzet, known as the city of truffles, the capital of the Istrian county Pazin located above the terrifying abyss that inspired Jules Verne for the novel Mathias Sandorf, and the largest Istrian city of Pula, whose history goes back to ancient times.
