Pazin is a small industrial town of the center of Istria.
It has a castle (kastel) built around 1540 on the remains of an older one from the 10th century. The river Pazincica disapear in a chasm and form three lakes underneath the town. The Caves of Pazin (Pazinska jama) have given to french writer Jules Verne the idea, in his novel 'Mathias Sandorf', to have his heroe, a magyar rebel, escape to his persuers into the chasm and go out in the fjord of Lim !
