Overview

Let us take you to the gems of Istra, little-hidden places Hum, Pazin, Motovun, and Zavrsje.

Pazin is home of the medieval fortress known as Kastel which due to its position inspired Jules Vern to set part of his novel 'Mathias Sandorf' in this area. In honor of him, local hold a festival 'Days of Jules Vern'. But this wonderful town also hold other sights to see such as the church of St. Nicolas, Franciscan Church of Visitation.

The most famous Istrian medieval city is of course Motovun. Well known film festival takes place there every year, but the popularity of this place is also due to its architecture. From the church of St. Stephen with a separate bell tower, serrated battlements, gates, and walls to the enchanting streets and squares make this place magical to wander around. We should not forget to mention the amazing offer of food and wine especially truffles specialties that are taken from nearby Motovun forest. Definitely don’t forget to ask about the legend of Veli Joze, benign giant that lived in the vicinity of the town.

And finally the last but still significant little place called Zavrsje. This town was surrounded by walls and had two entrances. Today the city core of Zavrsje it is protected urban unit entered in the Register of Croatian cultural monuments.
