Asparagus is an Istrian self-grown vegetable which is considered to be an aphrodisiac, but is also very nutritionally balanced food – it is believed that it protects from asthma, reduces cholesterol and high blood pressure, prevents heart and blood vessel diseases... If you are a lover of the asparagus, then the Days of Istrian Asparagus are definitely the place for you!

Asparagus grows in the wild in early spring, from the end of March to the beginning of May, among the tall thorny bushes, and patience, calmness and precision are recommended during the harvesting. There are many dishes prepared with asparagus, starting from egg frittatas, through pastas, to fish specialties. However, true gourmands always strive for something new and irresistible, so the number of recipes including this miraculous plant grows every year.

This year the manifestation of the Days of Istrian Asparagus will be held for the eighth time and will last from 21 March to 13 May. You will be able to taste many traditional, as well as some new dishes based on this wild gem, and all in combination with a few drops of quality Istrian wines. All you have to do is make a decision and start your trip towards northwest Istria (Buje, Brtonigla, Umag, and Novigrad), while the friendly hosts in many restaurants, taverns and popular agricultural tourism estates will take care of everything else.

See you!
