Istrian stone - a special material
Istrian stone is also known as karst marble, although it is not actually marble. In Istria it has been used as a building material since ancient times and is often found on public buildings, including in other countries in the region, for example Italy, Austria and Hungary. Due to its special composition, it hardly absorbs water and has a high level of frost resistance, which makes it an ideal material for facades as well. The light colors in various nuances make Istrian stone a popular material for builders who want to give their house a modern and at the same time regional look.
