One of the biggest events is the nautical expo Internautica, which attracts more than 400 exhibitions and 40,000 visitors. </p> <p>One of the places that you can’t miss is the hotel Kempinski Palace, a building that was once one of the most luxurious and important resorts of the aristocracy in the XIX century, together with Grado and Opatija. In the Riviera Casino the visitors can try their luck, while the large number of hotels offer thermal water treatment in its historic bathhouses. </p> <p>During your journey through the Istria, you can’t miss out on a visit to Piran, known as the small Venice for its Venetian influence.
