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.

Our guides will take you along the paths of the next 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. You can choose between tastings of wines and authentic food or guided visit of the Park of Istrian indigenous plants and animals.
