Did you know that tradition of olive harvesting has been established on Croatian soil for more than two millennia? Even in times of Old Romans, the region was quite known for its oil production and the golden nectar has been used both as a food ingredient and a medicine. You can learn more about this topic in Museum Olei Histriae, a unique exhibition space that informs about this vital industry and how it tracked the Istrians through more than twenty centuries. It is located in Pula on address Ulica Svetog Teodora 1a and counts as one of the most impressive places of the kind in Istria. Both informative and entertaining, the olive oil museum can easily explain why this ingredient was so sought after in the past and why it remains one of most important symbols of Croatian land in the world.
