Adventures - Portorož - Piran

On the path of Hrastovlje's heritage

Discover the almost forgotten paths to villages, where Istrian women called Šavrinke once lived and walked.  Discover the magic Hrastovlje village; locals will show you its secrets. You can admire the 12th century church, the only church in Slovenia that is entirely painted and bears the motif of the dance of death. There's also the home of art, the Jože Pohlen gallery, but also Grozdan Pohlen's personal collection - he accurately collected precious objects used by locals and soldiers. You can see indigenous animals while the park plays host to Istrian species that can't be found elsewhere in this spot of indigenous plants and animals. If you are hungry, stop at the village restaurant Švab, take a look at the shop with its charcuterie products and take home part of the green hinterland.
