Grožnjan is one of the hilltop towns in interior Istra, where snaking streets still hide the original charm.
Protection was much more important than getting a beautiful vista. Amid the green rolling hills on interior Istra, several small towns were built on the top of the hills. Hum is arguably one of the smallest towns on Earth, Motovun is the most famous, while Grožnjan is in the sweet spot. Still not known and developed as Motovun, but livelier than museum looking Hum, Grožnjan keeps its houses full of life as it was for centuries. Cobbled streets today witness people from all over the world, just as its inhabitants.
You can whiff truffle aroma from every corner, coming from homes and small restaurants. Olive oil and vine from olive groves and vineyards complement an outstanding Istrian cuisine.
Five at least several hours to feel and taste authentic Istria.
