SOPOT WATERFALL, BUZET | Second highest waterfall in Istria with height of 30 metres. It is located in area of village Strana near Buzet. From road Čiritež – Buzet you have to make a turn to village Strana. First you’ll arrive in village Brgad, but you have to pass through it, drive around one kilometer on macadam road and when you arrive back on asphalt road you are already in village Strana and there’s the first guide mark for Sopot Climbing (Penjalište Sopot in Croatian). Then you have to drive around 500 metres down the hill and shortly you’ll arrive to second guide mark, with same text. There you can leave your car and you have approximately 10 minutes of walk in waterfall direction. Once you arrive to the waterfall you’ll be delighted with beauty of the nature, it truly is like in paradise. The waterfall passes through the hole that water carved into the stone and the sight from down under is magnificent. The waterfall is rarely active, only during rainy periods and is also known as climbing spot. Because of its beauty, climbers named it Pandora (like in Avatar movie) and climbing routs are called upon names from movie. Because of the same name as waterfall near Pićan, they are often mixed although this waterfall is three times higher. You’ll also find this waterfall under name Copot, but the real name is Copot. Trust me, I’ve checked this with the locals!
