Best Time to Visit Istria Region 
Pula, Istria Region, Croatia
Best time to visit is at spring to late summer; winter turns Pula into ghost-town. Has nice rock beaches, and few budget accomodation options.

Umag, Istria Region, Croatia
If you go to Umag on a small budget, you should know that Umag is very expensive, especially in July cause of ATP tournament, but that's the best time to go party there. For nightlife I would recomend Daylight night bar not far from hotel Sol Istra Garden, or Macumba beach bar 5 km in Novigrad direction from Umag. And be carefull what you eat in a hotel even if it has 4 stars, sometimes they serve old food.

Istria Region Internet & Communications  
Pula, Istria Region, Croatia
Beautiful town on the sea that has changed hands with every empire in the Adriatic; from a neolithic settlement to being ruled by Greece, Rome, Byzantine, Slavs, Franks, Veniatians, Pisans, Genoese, Hapsburgs, French, Austrians, Italians (pre-WWI), and was administered by the UN until being united with communist Yugoslavia. You can find every imaginable type of architecture from a well preserved Roman arena to an unbelievable futurist post-office that is made from hundreds of thousands of mini red tiles. Pula is well worth a few days visit.

Rijeka, Istria Region, Croatia
Jedite krempite u Pikoli Simoni na Korzu, ne kafu idite u Kavanu Ri (u robnoj kući Ri), najlepša terasa u gradu. Popnite se uz Kalvariju do Kozale. Trsat predveče, prošetajte preko trsatskog groblja. Ako nemate lap top sa wirelessom, onda internet u Kontu

Small pictoresque village off the beaten track, and a great place to eat... If you're traveling from Zagreb to the coast, don't miss it.

Rijeka, Istria Region, Croatia
One thing that I can confirm is that...from the moment when I arrived in Rijeka, I have realized that this is a town where a woman can travel by herself, can have fun and enjoy the sightseeing of the town , without feeling threatened or mistreated at any point!...:-)
