Pjescana Uvala

The architecture of entire Pješcana Uvala, as well as the Church of St. Nicholas the Traveler, is completely modern. Built in the form of a ship, a combination of white and blue, the church completely dominates the settlement from its hilltop location. The hillside above the bay gently slopes towards the southwest and is exposed to the sun all day. The climate is mild in winter and the settlement is sheltered from the wind.

For this reason one of the best equipped marinas in Croatia has been built nearby, in the direction of Veruda Bay. It provides 650 berths on 18 piers and 250 boat places on land. All piers are under video surveillance, the marina has a 30t crane, 25t hydraulic yard trailer, and boaters can also have Internet access. The marina is modernized each year. Marina guests are mostly Germans, Austrians and Italians.

Gastronomy

The multiculturalism of Istria is best felt in its gastronomy which is the result of Italian, Germanic and Slavic influences, bearing in mind at the same time its Mediterranean setting.

The Italian influence can best be felt in seafood dishes (fish, clams, crabs, scampi), especially in the combination with different types of pasta, whereas other influences are felt in the rural cuisine.

However, the true significance of Istrian cuisine is the use of high-quality ingredients in cooking such as: Istrian prosciutto, truffles and the famed Istrian olive oil, considered to be one of the world's best, praised and awarded at international competitions over the last years.
