Grožnjan is a medieval town located in the central Istria,
on a hill above the sea level of 228 meters
and 15 kilometres away from the sea.
Its known as the "town of artists" since artists, such as
painters, sculptors, ceramics and jewelry makers,
came in Grožnjan in 1956.
Today there are at least 42 galleries in Grožnjan where you can see their work.
Also, Grožnjan is a perfect place if you love music, especially jazz,
since every year there are summer shools of music and jazz concerts.
Grožnjan is a perfect match if you are looking for Instagrammble places in Istria
where you can walk, relax and photograph every corner.
Artists galleries and interesting houses make this town one of the most colourful
destinations in Istria that is ideal for one day trip.
We decided to go to Grožnjan in the early morning after we had breakfast in Oprtalj.
Even that was a very rainy day, when we came to Grožnjan the rain stopped
so our time in Grožnjan was perfect for walking and exploring.
If you love photography as much as I do then I am sure you will also
enjoy to take photos of every window, corner and door in Grožnjan.
There you can have a delicious istrian lunch, grab a coffee with beautiful view
and enjoy in art and music. (On the bottom of this post you can see our recommendations for next time.)
