CREEK BUTONIGA – THE HIDDEN JEWEL OF ISTRIA

ISTRIADUCTION  All Year | No Working time | Free Entrance U subotu 4.2.2017. godine uputio sam se u kanjon potoka Butonige, kako bih istražio taj skriveni dragulj Istre. Potok Butoniga je poznat kao jedan od tri najveća pritoka istoimenog akumulacijskog jezera, no postoji prilično malo teksta i fotografija o njemu i to sam želio ispraviti. Nedaleko Starog grada (Zelengrada) u potok Butoniga utječe i Grdoselski potok, a područje oko Grdoselskog potoka slovi za jedinu istarsku prašumu. Oba su potoka prepuna prekrasnih slapova, a u vrijeme mog posjeta potok je obilovao vodom, što mu je dalo svu čar. U pet sati koliko sam proveo u kanjonu izmijenila su se sva četiri godišnja doba i na samom kraju sam izgubio bitku s kišnim oblacima, no ostaje veliko zadovoljstvo i oduševljenje potokom koji je urezao svoje korito u kamen i oblikovao prava mala remek dijela. Na području oko nekadašnjeg Zelengrada postojalo je čak 10 mlinova, a ostatke njih četiri sam pronašao prilikom ovog foto istraživanja. Područje Grdosela i Butonige je od iznimne povijesne vrijednosti i u istraživanje prirodnih ljepota te povijesti ovog kraja ću zasigurno uložiti još dosta vremena, a isto preporučam i vama, jer ovo je

LINDAR – MY FATHER’S VILLAGE AT THE HILLTOP ABOVE PAZIN

ISTRIADUCTION All Year | No Working time | Free Entrance My father's village above Pazin is a beautiful and peaceful place called Lindar. If you drive around Pazin and you want to see that little place just follow the bell tower at the hilltop above the Pazin. Bell tower was named by catholic priest St. Mohor and Fortunato and it is situated in middle of the fort that used to protect the Pazin Castle. Books said that in Lindar 47 soldiers and Captain Lazarić brought the Istria back under the Austrian rule when he attacked the French army beneath Lindar and forced it to flee to Pazin. The altitude of the central part of Lindar ranges from 454 metres  above sea level with its solid walls, stone houses, towers, churches and plots of the land surrounding the fort.  Also there is an old catholic church St. Catherine built in 1392. Famous church and cultural legacy of Lindar with Glagolitic inscription on the fresco of the "Živi Križ - Living Kross". The fresco was painted in 1409. and present the Crucifixion scene, where the arms of the cross transform into four lifelike hands.

ZAREČKI KROV IS BRINGING PEOPLE, NATURE & ANIMALS TOGETHER

ISTRIADUCTION Zarečki krov (Zarečje's roof) has been a heaven on earth in middle of Istria just 4 km away from town Pazin. This unexplored nature of Istria represents the connection between animals, people and nature. To see that unique treasure you can pass through Pazin city and turn right when you see table Zarečje and follow the local road to table Zarečki krov. Take a 3 minute walk on the path through the forest to river Pazinčica. There in front of Pazinčica river we found a beautiful white horse with a friendly smile, families made BBQ and relax by the waterfall. The waterfall height is more than 10m and one of the largest waterfalls in Istria. Pazinčica river is ideal for people to take a swim, to go fishing or just enjoy when you having fun with friends on a picnic. Tips: Try to take an adrenaline walk across the river to the other side of Zarečki roff but don't get wet. Also, you can go inside the cave to see how the river flows above your head.
