Central Istria

A number of medieval towns of central Istria, the unspoiled nature and rich cultural heritage will win the heart of every guest.

In the heart of central Istria is Pazin, famous for the castle, established above the abyss Pazinčica, but also the Ethnographic Museum and the Museum of the City of Pazin.

If you move from Pazin to the north, you will come to Motovun-Montone, a picturesque medieval town on a hill, rich with cultural and historical heritage and the famous wood, a habitat of famous truffles.

Furtherup of Motovun is Buzet, a town on the hill in the middle of the fertile valley of the Mirna River, which in 1999 was proclaimed the town of truffle.

Nearby visit Roč, today an exceptionally active cultural center, as well as Hum - the smallest town in the world! Between these two small towns there is a unique memorial to the old Croatian Glagolitic alphabet and culture.

If you move from Pazin towards the south, the road will lead you to Žminj, a small town where old Istrian houses and holdings nowdays became agritourism that offer accommodation with homemade Istrian cooking and the unspoiled nature.

In the south there is Svetvinčenat, the art center of southern Istria.
