ISTRIADUCTION September | Weekend| Free Entrance Along the west coast of Istria, four kilometers from Umag is the flooded town of Sipar, to which many legends are associated. During high tides and today you can see the remains of this ancient city that springs from the sea. Sipar Castle was built probably around the year 1000, next to the already missing Siparis, when it allegedly once served as a lighthouse. At that time, nearby Umag suffered from robbers several times, and it is not excluded that the castle was built by pirates who, when they conquered Siparis, lived there and prepared for their further expeditions from here. The castle was in good condition until 1943, when the Germans demolished its upper part with artillery for strategic reasons.

ISTRIADUCTION  All Year | No Working time | Free Entrance According to the legend, it was built by order of the Austrian count Metternich, who fell in love with a girl from Savudrija and wanted to build a love nest there. The Lighthouse of Savudrija was built in 1818. It is the oldest Lighthouse on Adriatic sea, which is still in use. Total height 36m. Build by arhitect Pietra Nobilea in less then a year. In the vicinity of the lighthouse we can find characteristic boat lifts-grues. This is a resourceful way of lifting boats without safe mooring on wooden constructions with the help of rope and pulley. Charactericst of Savudrija is also a wooden boat with a flat bottom called batana, intended for individual coastal fishing, rowed in a standing position.

ISTRIADUCTION  In September| Working time: 16-00h | Pay per Entrance Wine and run always start with wine and finish somehow. If you are ready to take Maraton, Half marathon or relay race combined with good atmosphere and alcohol in your veins this is the right race for you. Because this unique event is made for professional athletes but also for amateurs who for the first time want to try something similar. The race puts a special experience, fun and entertainment of competitors but at the same time, it wants to tell more about the ecological and gastronomical offer of rural Istria. While we were running along the route we visited refreshing points where we were able to taste great wines of Istrian winemakers. Also, we made little masquerade and animated by different musical entertainers. In one point we were a little bit drunk but at that point, we had the best race time. Tips: Don't drink and drive, just drink and run :) [fusion_map address="latlng=45.441177, 13.524217" type="roadmap" zoom="10" scrollwheel="yes" scale="yes" zoom_pancontrol="yes" animation="no" popup="yes" map_style="default" infobox="default" hide_on_mobile="small-visibility,medium-visibility,large-visibility" /]
