“IGRE NA ROG” IN MOTOVUN

ISTRIADUCTION  In February | No Working time | Free Entrance Drevna igra bacanja roga u Istri očuvala se još jedino u Motovunu i Buzetu.Na Pepelnicu ili Čistu srijedu, prvi dan Korizme, u Motovunu se održava „igra na rog“. Pravila ove zabavne igre koja se igra na cesti od gornjeg groblja do Kanala vrlo su jednostavna: jedan natjecatelj baci volovski rog, a ostali mu svoje drvene palice (bačuke) nastoje dobaciti što bliže.Prije nego što baci palicu igrač najčešće po, za tu zgodu izmišljenom duhovitom nadimku pozove sljedećeg bacača.

MISTY MORNING IN MOTOVUN

ISTRIADUCTION  All Year | Working time: 0-24h | Free Entrance   MOTOVUN MIST | I've always wanted to capture Motovun's famous morning mist. Legendary mist rises from Mirna river's valley up to the hilltop on which Motovun is placed so the town looks like an island. I finally got an opportunity to photograph it and I've circulated all around Motovun and took photos from hills in Motovun surroundings and conclusion is that Motovun looks like a fairy tale town from every single angle. One of the perspectives of local tourism, which is the most important sector of local economy, should be, literally "Selling the fog". I'm sure that a lot a tourists would pay to experience it, no matter for how long they have to wait. Now that I've experienced it, I know I would pay for that experience.   MORE ISTRIAGO COLLECTIONS
