In the path of Heritage Hrastovlje
Try to discover the almost forgotten village paths to the places where the Istrian women of Šavrinka used to live and walk. Let your journey take you to the mysterious Hrastovlje, where the friendly locals will present their treasures to you. Not only will you take a look at the beautiful 12th-century church, which is the only fully painted church in Slovenia and which preserves the perfectly preserved motif of dying dancing, but your view will also open up to the whole village from the nearby hill. You can easily enter the temple of art, the gallery of the excellent Istrian artist Jože Pohlen, as well as the local Grozdana Pohlena, a personal collection of the invaluable objects from the lives of the locals and soldiers of our towns. For Istria, typical animal and plant species, which we meet today only exceptionally, are waiting for you in the park of indigenous plants and animals. So you don't go home hungry and empty handed, just stop at the local inn Švab and the store selling dried goods, so you can take a piece of the green countryside home with you.
