Istria abecedary: J is for Jadran

Jadran (pronounced yadran the J is pronounced Y) is the name for the Adriatic Sea in Croatian. Istria as a peninsula is bordered by the Adriatic Sea on all three sides, so its history and many aspects of everyday life are intrinsically tied to it.

J is also for Jugo, the warm wind that blows from the South and brings cloudy and rainy weather.
