Croatia may be more associated with sparkling oceans and gorgeous beaches but nature and art lovers are encouraged to get a bit off the beaten track to discover this colourful Land Art trail in Istria.

The trail is in Učka Nature Park and is the brainchild and creation of artist Boris Pecigoš who completed the trail at the end of 2016. It combines a mixture of rock and land art that aims to get visitors thinking about the connection between humans and the nature around them.

In total, the circular trail is 6.5 kilometres long and is described as easy enough for walkers of all abilities. It will take two-three hours in total but the artist advises people leave a little longer to spend time contemplating the artwork. A map of the trail and more information about how to get there and what to expect are here.
