Summary/Abstract: The article presents the forms of travelling characteristic of the northern Adriatic that formerly belonged to a unified but multicultural area from the Congress of Vienna in 1815 until 1941. The article focusses on the travelling of the local population and tourists by maritime transport services (the Austrian Lloyd founded in 1836 was the largest transport company of the Habsburg Monarchy) and the railway, and later by road motor transport. According to the available sources (the printed tourist guides are an important source for studying tourism development), we also explained the institutional support for tourism development and strategic development aspects by the Austro-Hungarian and later the Italian (fascist) government. The latter achieved significantly lower results in Istrian tourism due to anti-Slavic actions and other political circumstances, economic depression and the spread of epidemic diseases.
