hilltop villagges in Istria

skip the popular places, see the hidden gems

Image - Oprtalj
Ivona:The town of OPRTALJ is a destination for lovers of folklore and tradition of Istrian peninsula. It is a historical fort town protected with massive town walls with a bell tower in the centre. It is on the opposite side of Motovun from the Mirna river, surrounded by hilly terrain, located on a 380 meters high hilltop. Several historic buildings that testify its glurious past but also many old buildings that are in need of modernisation. Many people left Oprtalj after WW2 but the recent developments in Istria is helping bringing Oprtalj back to life. Some of the houses are being renovated into holiday homeswhich makes it for locals to stay in Oprtalj. One of the best things you can see in Oprtalj is when kids are playing outside because they still have the elementary school there, which is not so common in smaller Istrian villagges any more.. The best view you can have from Oprtalj is from the town loggia where the most important persons in the town were meeting to discuss about issues and naming new laws regarding the town.
Image - Grožnjan
Ivona:GROŽNJAN the medieval town of artists and music. Small closely built houses and the caste are a testimony of the medieval past. In Grožnjan everything starts from May when actors, musitians, painters, sculptors and art lovers arrive in town. Walking around the town you will hear sounds of jazz and classical music. it’s artistic revival began in 1965 when artists from all over the world inhabited the empty houses abbandoned by italians after WW2. They have an annual jazz festival and they won the European award for the best small jazz festival. :) They also have an annual painting festival - the Extempore exibition when painters arrive with blank canvases and paint their paintings that day. First mention of Grožnjan is from 1100. Venice took over Grožnjan in the 13thcentury, and in the 19th became part of the Austrian empire.

abbandoned villagges in Istria

Image - Dvigrad ruins
Dvigrad ruins
Ivona:DVIGRAD/two cities was destroyed in the 17th century and a couple of years after was hit by a plague. In just few decades the life in Dvigrad completely died. The history of the settlement is prehistoric. Today the regional program for cultural and natural heritage in SouthEAST Europe is trying preserve and reconstruct the town. Current remains represent a well preserved, typical medieval town castle. It is encircled by the two rings of town walls connected by the town gate, of which there are three just as many as its defensive towers. The Church of St. Sophia still dominates the town. It is located on the highest point of town, on the same location from the Early Christian times. It current fascinating three-nave form was built in the 13th century. In front of this Romanesque style edifice there is the main town square and the town palace. Military quarters were located in the town's western part, while the craftsmen inhabited its southwest. The remaining, rather a large area, was occupied by houses for regular citizens.

Završje, Grožnjan
Ivona:Today the town of ZAVRŠJE is abandoned but very soon the restructuring of it might start with the founds provided by the EU. This charming town with the important castle and leaning tower should retourn to life one day. There are many historic buildings that testify to its glorious past but very few people left in town. Enyoj the silence here. You may come across one dog and a couple of biciclists riding the Parenzana trail here. The renovated church of the Blessed Virgin Mary from the 18th century is rarely opened unfortunatelly. Završje was always a town of farmers who worked the fields and grew olives and friuts. Silver candle holders were on the city walls from the 18th century, today at the Louvre in Paris. In the 15th century Završje was attacked several times when Venice was fighting the Hungarians, Turks and Austrians. In the ‘40s the anti fascist movement spread to Završje. Economical and political reasons contributed to a mass exodus.
