Grožnjan

Overlooking the Mirna Valley, the small medieval village of Groznjan rises to a height of 288 meters above sea level. The beautiful village exudes a unique magic: Winding, narrow lanes and alleys meander through the equally seemingly antiquated houses. Groznjan's charms do well in bewitching holiday guests, and the many artists that come here are by no means immune to this charm either. The city today is an artists' colony whereby many of the historic buildings have become the galleries and studios of renowned Istrian artists.

The visual arts experiences are not the only arts to be held in great esteem here. Music in Groznjan is also of high priority. Every year, the town brings together young musicians from all over the world to perfect their skills during workshops and courses. These young musicians also then have the chance to present their skills during one of the many classical and jazz concerts that take place here.

Additionally, Groznjan is also home to some interesting historical ruins, including the Baroque style parish Church of St. Vitus built in 1770. The town loggia dating back to the 16th century now houses the Fonticus Gallery. The medieval castle is used to hold concerts. Groznjan is located approximately five miles away from the small town of Buje. It is only about a 30 minute drive away if you start from the coast of Umag or Novigrad.
