WHITE TRUFFLE HUNT IN MOTOVUN FOREST

ISTRIADUCTION September| Free Entrance Early in the morning, we met in the Motovun forest to embark on another season of white truffle hunting. After the gathering and coffee, we were assigned an official hunter from the Istrian Truffle Association, who showed us the way where his dogs will go hunting. The hunter took with him two beautiful dogs Lotu and Bibu who are extremely trained and obedient and we immediately fell in love with them. While we were walking through the Motovun forest, our group of truffles passed a handful of information related to the story of truffles. It was rumored why the Motovun forest and its land bring one of the most important habitats of white truffles in the world. After the introductory speech, we were already lucky that Biba sniffed the first truffle, and immediately the action started and digging with a specialized spatula "Vanga" and finding a smaller specimen of white truffle.

THE STORY OF ŽMINJ

ISTRIADUCTION June - August | Free Entrance Outside Istria, all roads lead to Rome, but in Istria all roads lead to Žminj, is one of the lessons that can be heard from the guide Karla Čerljenko Bulić on this season's free guided tour of Žminj called Žminjska šturija. And much more can be seen and learned through a short, only one-hour circular walk through the old town of Žminj: what do the remains of three concentric circles of the former Žminj defensive walls look like; which is the oldest non-sacral building in Žminj; why the interiors of the country churches were painted with frescoes and what is the usual order of the scenes depicted on them; how once the roofs of houses were covered with stone slates; what is it called, why is it called that and what does the oldest preserved Žminj city street look like; what happened to the only saved wooden altar from the church in Žminj that was destroyed in a fire a long time ago; where people gathered in Žminj in the past and where and on what occasions they gather today; how history and modernity intertwine in
