Even though Croatia is known for its beaches and coastline, the inland is as beautiful as the coast. 

Whilst we were still in Istria, we went to visit two cute little towns in the central part. We arrived to Grožnjan just in time to catch the golden hour and it was really pretty – as the sun came through the stone houses was ethereal. Grožnjan might be familiar to jazz lovers, as it hosts an annual small jazz festival in July. groznjan_from16to23groznjan_from16to23groznjan_from16to23groznjan_from16to23

Our next stop was Motovun, which is a small medieval town located on top of a hill. The streets are cobble-stoned, steep and really narrow, however they serve as two-way streets. The view from the top is breathtaking and as the sun was setting down, the horizon became pink, purple and then dark. Motovun is known for its international Film Festival, which is held in the summer time.


Have you ever been to these places? And if so, what did you think of them?

Till the next one,

  1. I’m originally from Bosnia, but now live in the states. I have gone to Croatia for vacations a few times with my family, but I would love to go now because I don’t remember all of the beauty I saw as a child! Your photos are amazing and make me want to book my trip now! xx Adaleta Avdic
