Visit Hrastovlje and be Part of this Unique Experience

This unique tour takes you to Hrastovlje, typical Istrian village under the Carst edge. A visit of Hrastovlje can be a truly unforgettable experience. It brings together rich heritage, culture, nature and cuisine – all closely tied to tradition.

Your tour begins with ride from cruise passenger terminal in Trieste to Hrastovlje. Your guide will present you Istrian region and the program of the tour. In Hrastovlje you will get 6 coupons and a postcard of Hrastovlje. Four coupons are used during the visit of the local sights and two coupons for experiences of your own choice.

Our guides will take you along the paths of the local attractions: to the gallery of Jože Pohlen, one of the most remarkable Istrian artist, to the private collection of weapons, and to the Romanesque church of Holy Trinity, considered a real treasure of the Medieval mural paintings, among which the motif of the “Dance of Death” is the most famous. During the pleasant and instructive visit, our guides will show you the so-called EXPERIENCE points.
