Welcome to Motovun

Motovun, located in the centre of Istria, is an ancient small town, built on 277 m height above the sealevel, from where it dominates above the valley of the river Mirna. From its town walls and the church tower spreads the spectucular view of numerous surrounding vineyards, the Motovun forest and the sea.

The Gate

The old town nucleus is going to absorb your attention with the squares, churches, loggia and other architectural details which all heep some secret

The Main Square

Looks very qiet and pieceful coz I have visited it in late Avgust afternoon by the time that organized bus groups alreday left the town.

    I am ashamed that last time I staid on the main road and did not make the detour in Buje. Next time, my visit schedule is already booked out ! Motovun will be a must (for truffles !)

    Che bel paesino! Un'altro posto da visitare presto! Se non sbaglio le terme di S.Stefano (Istarke Toplice) sono li' vicino.

    Pripremam se za festival slijedece godine (valjda me nece zaboraviti pozvati kao dosad!) pa da vidim gdje se to odrzava. Bojim se da moje crveno-crne stiklice nece biti korisne, a tak mi dobro stoje...

    Motovun is a hystoric place. When traveling to the Adriatic sea we liked to drove up on the peak to enjoy the beautiful architecture and nice view on the surroundings. Thank you Boris.

    I am impressed at how beautiful and historic all the small towns in Croatia are.
