Hrastovlje - Experience in Istria

Be Part of This Unique Experience!

Dance of Death Frescoes – Culture and Art – Istrian Specialities

This unique tour takes you to Hrastovlje, typical Istrian village under the Karst edge. A visit of the village can be a truly unforgettable experience. It brings together rich heritage, culture, nature and cuisine – all closely tied to tradition.

Your tour begins with short ride from passenger terminal to the village of Hrastovlje. Your guide will present you Istrian region and the program of the tour. In the village you will get 6 coupons and a postcard of Hrastovlje. Four coupons are used during the visit of the local sights and two coups for experiences of your own choice.

The guide will take you along the paths of the next local attractions: to the gallery of Jože Pohlen, one of the most remarkable Istrian artist, to the private collection of weapons, and to the Romanesque church of Holy Trinity, considered a real treasure of the Medieval fresco, among which the motif of the “Dance of Death” is the most famous.

During the pleasant and instructive visit, our guides will show you the so-called EXPERIENCE points. You can choose between tastings of wines and authentic food or guided visit of the Park of Istrian indigenous plants and animals. To make the experience truly memorable, you will also receive a postcard of Hrastovlje. Your tour concludes with some free time and relaxing drive through the Istrian countryside back to the passenger terminal.
