Grožnjan is known as the “artistic town” and is worthy for half-day visit filled with art, galleries and truffles shop. Located in west of Istria, nearby Novigrad, only 15 kilometres away from the sea. This medieval town is still in its original state until today, through preserved old walls, forts, churches and monuments. Grožnjan became a creative town in 1956 when they started to populate empty houses which the residents were forced to abandon and thus made sure the town did not perish. The town is on the hilltop and has a nice vantage point and you may even catch a glimpse of Motovun on a clear day. Local artists display their work in the cobblestone streets and you can spend time with the artists in their galleries.
