Full description
Discover the beauty of “Green Istria”, a peninsula hidden from the everyday hustle and bustle, encompassed by forests and hills. On this day tour through this lush region, visit two small traditional towns that are immersed in history and legends.
 
Grožnjan, known as the city of artists, is surrounded by green hills and a magical white soil. This city has an interesting history that has been written into every nook of the town and permeates the present. It is rich in ancient churches and castles, prehistoric finds, magnificent palaces and many other old buildings whose past glory have been recovered through restoration, all still evoking the charm of the past. Grožnjan also hosts as many as 28 ateliers, an art gallery with works from artists all around the world, and the Imaginary Film Academy. In the summer, all of Grožnjan becomes a stage on which renowned jazz and classical musicians alternate.
 
After Grožnjan, visit the small town of Oprtalj, a picturesque village in northern Istria situated on a hill and accessible by a narrow plateau. At some time in the past, this was a fortified settlement. Today, only the settlement gateway is visible. Every single stone step emanates its historical spirit, each perfectly set in place to create a perfect picture which, in its silence, enriches visitors with tales from the past.
 
Your stroll will end in the beautiful ambience of a local tavern, where you’ll have the pleasure of tasting local Istrian delicacies.
