ISTRIADUCTION March | Free Entrance Puč - the water source in Vošteni is a wonderful place located in nature in Vošteni. After a good meal in the tavern, it is necessary to take a short walk in nature. It is a 10-minute walk from the tavern along the road itself. The source was created with stone blocks and is located more than ten meters below the surface of the earth. It is interesting that the water accumulates in stone basins, and it is said that the water comes out all the way to the Lim channel. Tips: Take something to eat and drink because there is a stone table at the top, which is ideal for gathering with friends and family. MORE ISTRIAGO COLLECTIONS

ISTRIADUCTION December | Free Entrance From Puntera to the Raša valley The new Barban walking trail starts at Puntera. It moves downhill on a white winding road all the way to the Raša valley. Along the trail, there are plaques with interesting facts about the area. As well as the fact that the Raški kanal is 12 kilometers long and 1 kilometer wide. And views of the bay and fields are inevitable for a photo keepsake. These are the only fields in Istria below sea level, drained during the rule of Italy, in the late twenties of last century, and between the war they fed the population. If you want, you can continue your journey to Blaz, where we will find several choices. A short stream used to drive a mill, and today only stone remains remain. That’s where the road stops and we head back the same way. MORE ISTRIAGO COLLECTIONS

ISTRIADUCTION January| Weekend | Free Entrance Butori Abyss is located right next to the road of Butori and you do not have much walking to the destination but everything is close. As soon as you leave your car, a few meters walk and it brings you to a picturesque and poetic place. You will see a small picturesque waterfall, an abyss and a lake that has a beautiful color even in winter (this shows how clean and untouched the place is). Of course, in this place there are smaller abysses and an old abandoned mill and a canal through which water comes and flows into a beautiful waterfall of 10 m. If you are looking for a quiet and safe place this is definitely a destination you must visit. The waterfall is fenced with a safe fence so you can take the kids on a day trip, and if you go alone and are an adventurer then at your own risk you cross the fence and take the best shots of this picturesque waterfall. Also, when mentioning the poetic place, I want to say that in the evening summer hours, poets gather to

ISTRIADUCTION In September| Weekend | Free Entrance Did you know that Istria also has its own desert? Near the town of Šterna not far from Grožnjan is the 'Istrian desert', which consists of "dunes" of marl or tašela, as this fine-grained sedimentary rock is often called in Istria. Although in Istria, especially in its central and northern part, we often come across such parts of the landscape, here we are talking about a unique concentration of such forms on a fairly large area.

ISTRIADUCTION In September| Weekend | Pay per Entrance Another jewel of our beautiful Istria is certainly Cape Kamenjak. The southernmost point of Istria, indented coast, beautiful beaches and blue sea, is certainly something worth enjoying. Entrance to the cape itself is charged, and the ticket price depends on the means of transport (it is free for pedestrians) and the number of days on which the ticket is purchased. The ticket for one day, for a car is 80kn and that day you can stay at the cape until 22h. Along with the ticket itself, you will also receive an information brochure and two garbage bags. Since the cape itself has many beaches, our choice this time was Toreta beach. The beach is located on the open sea, has a view of a small island and a lighthouse behind it, the sea is crystal clear, as evidenced by the presence of sea urchins in the shallows. Due to the fact that it is a wild beach, access to the sea was not very accessible, so for all future visitors I recommend wearing some kind of water slippers. The beach itself has little shade so

ISTRIADUCTION In August | Weekend | Free Entrance The part of Istria that is definitely worth visiting in the summer months is definitely Rakalj. He delighted me. I was on two beaches; Kalavojni and Luki beaches. Kalavojna can be reached by car to the beach. On one side are huge rocks where people sunbathe, while on the other side of the shore are small pebbles with trees that create a pleasant shade when it gets hot. The sea is clean and beautiful blue. The best thing is that although the beach looks great, it is not crowded with people and it is always possible to find your own place to enjoy it. Luka beach is located towards Stari Rakalj. It can be reached in two ways. You can either leave the car on the road above the beach and walk to the bottom of the path (approx. 20min) or you can walk along the path of Sjepan Hauser, where the beach is then part of the path. Along the coast there is an old, sunken ship which is an attraction in itself, so it's cool to dive to it and explore it a

ISTRIADUCTION In May | Weekend | Free Entrance Welcome! A stone house was built in 1904 by the family Modrušan, in the village of Smoljanci near the renaissance town of Svetvinčenat. Two Modrušan brothers had many family members. Everybody was working hard and was taking care of the domestic animals, as pigs and goats. Also built in 1904, is the private residence and šterna (water tank), that represents a prime example of traditional Istrian architecture. In the past, the local villagers went to take water from the water tank. The water tank was at the time a precious good that only rich families could afford. We (family Moll) bought and renovated the stone house in 1999 till 2003. Stancija 1904, located in the idyllic village of Smoljanci is located in the heart of Istria. The word “Stancija” means newly-renovated and fully-equipped traditional Istrian accommodation surrounded by untouched nature. The Istrian tradition is not only seen in the architecture but also in our authentic Istrian cuisine. The typical Istrian menu  features home-made herb bread baked in a bread-oven, handmade pasta with truffles, asparagus, mushrooms and various meat sauces, maneštra, Istrian soup and traditional desserts thematically

ISTRIADUCTION In May | Weekend | Free Entrance The "Stara Ferata" bike trail starts and ends at the foot of Motovun, a picturesque medieval town in the heart of the Istrian peninsula, and 21.3 km long leads you along the beautiful Parenzana route from Motovun to Vižinada, the green valley of the river Mirna and fairytale vineyards of Motovun. It was named after Parenzana, a former narrow-gauge railway (in operation from 1902 to 1935), and today a favorite cycling and hiking trail in Istria. The trail is moderately difficult (yellow mark) due to several ascents from the Mirna valley towards Brkač, while the rest of the trail is easy. You drive almost entirely on macadam (18.3 km), while the asphalt is only 3 km. It is not entirely marked with characters, so follow the GPX trail and instructions at: https://bit.ly/3cXnGiP. Take advantage of the beautiful spring weather to visit Motovun and ride through the green landscapes overlooking Motovun ? You can watch the promotional video trails here: https: /youtuu.bekO7e0SDsEE-A.
