Groznjan Travel Guide

groznjan istria croatia road trip

The merry sound of music, accompanied by the creative buzz and lively color of the artists' community make Groznjan an irresistibly romantic destination. The summer music, drama, and peace-focused academies turn the quiet hill town into a cultural gem. A place where new Bohemian chic entwines amicably with Old World structures, Groznjan welcomes the creative class, having declared itself a town of artists in 1965. Set 225m up a hillside about 27km from the Porec, the town warmly welcomes visitors with authentic hospitality, opening the doors of its 14th-century Venetian splendor along with its galleries, cafes, and shops.
