We can all agree on one thing, queen of Croatia is definitely Istria. As every queen has her king, Istria has its majesty the Truffle. Homeland of truffles is the mystical Motovun forest and we can say, truffle hunting is more like a treasure hunt because truffles grow underground and therefore are found only with the help of specially trained dogs or pigs. The largest ever found truffle was found near Buje in Istria and it weighed 1.31 kg, which was famously recorded in the Guinness Book of Records.
