    The Great War in the Adriatic

    Exhibition

    The exhibition "The Great War in the Adriatic", usually located at the Gallerion Museum in Cittanova, now also present in the halls of the Brtonigla Museum.

    At the official headquarters of the Gallerion Museum, he exhibited the exhibition about the birth and development of the Austro-Hungarian Navy until the beginning of the First World War, while in the Brtonigla Town Museum with 180 photographic panels and numerous original finds, for the first time in history will be presented in chronological order the naval war in the Adriatic Sea.

    It could have all ended up diff erently. The tourist season of 1914 had been the best until then. Economy was bursting.

    Everyone expected an improvement in the living standards of the lowest social classes in the Monarchy. Instead, the worst possible option, the war, was chosen. The character of the confl ict is well described by its name – the Great War. It lasted four years and left behind 17 million dead and more than 20 million injured without reaching any of the goals set. It happened what nobody among those who had begun it expected. Four big empires have collapsed; the German, the Astro-Hungarian, the Russian and the Turkish. They dissolved into a number of new national states. Some of them were unsustainable geopolitical entities such as newly formed Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes, predecessor of recently dissolved Yugoslavia that also ended its existence with a war.

    This exhibition aims to present, for the fi rst time in Europe, the Great War at sea in all its aspects. Through this exhibition we are trying to faithfully convey to the public this immanent tragedy through 300 panels and 300 naval models as well as with numerous original objects and documents. The exhibition will be set up at three locations in Cittanova and Brtonigla.

    Naval operations in the Mediterranean and in the Adriatic, despite the preponderance of the Triple Entente fl eet, have been conducted almost until the end of the confl ict. The Adriatic coast remained free of confl ict and has been spared from military invasion until the entry of the Italian troops after the armistice. Through the whole war, the Imperial and Royal Navy provided, in spite of all the diff iculties, including the disobedience and rebellion of sailors due to the poor living conditions, social abandonment and national disengagement, a reliable defence of the coast and off ered support to own forces at the South Eastern and on South Western theatre of war. After the dissolution of the Empire, its Navy virtually disappeared, while its fellow citizens become citizens of new state entities.

    Eventually, these geopolitical, unhappy and unjust divisions of nations, new frontiers and new spheres of interest, led to a new, even greater tragedy: the Second World War.

    The tradition of the Austro-Hungarian navy has been in some forms preserved in a newly formed Navy of the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats then passed on through successor Yugoslavia and then eventually to its successor states. While the golden years of the Austrian presence at the sea ended in 1918, its exceptionally rich heritage has survived to this day and can be observed in various ports and port buildings, in high quality shipbuilding, maritime training, nomenclature (especially in the navy), tourism and cultural heritage (e.g. the fortification system in Pula). Ports such as Trieste, Pula and Rijeka have developed during the Austria-Hungarian period, and much of modern coastal infrastructure was built during that time. Numerous Adriatic lighthouses, these guardians and caretakers of the seaside, sailors’ friends along our coasts and islands, are particularly solemn and mystical witnesses of that era of great captains, sailors and ships, as well as of the glorious navy.

    Taking into account all these circumstances, our desire and our main aim is to set up an International Naval Museum to present and preserve this rich heritage. We believe that only multinational and multi-ethnic representation and interpretation of the past events can provide solid foundation on which we can build our future.

    Boxing in Pula

    Exhibition

    The exhibition Boxing in Pula is an expression of the initiative of the Historical and Maritime Museum of Istria - Museo storico e navale dell’Istria for the preservation and appreciation of the importance of boxing - the most decorated sport of Pula.

    For the first time the history of amateur boxing in Pula is presented to the public: from antiquity to the present day. The exhibition presents the emergence of the first forms of boxing, the development of boxing as a contemporary sport, the organization of boxing clubs and the activities of prominent individuals: boxers and coaches. The most substantial part of the exhibition is dedicated to the activities of the Boxing Club Pula, which has, since its foundation in 1946, intensely promoted boxing in Pula and deserves most credit for the achievement of its greatest successes at regional and European tournaments. The exhibition pays special tribute to eighteen boxers who during their active boxing careers particularly excelled in their personal style and individual successes, who contributed to the success of the Boxing Club Pula and left an indelible mark in the annals of boxing in Pula - the golden glove - Mate Parlov and other successful boxers: Banovac, Berbakov, Peruško, Vranješević, Mudrovčić, Kovjanić, Šarar, Gerlić, Stanković, Tadić, Miličević, Drviš, Bajrami, Bajrektarević, Vrgoč, Ahmeti and Čalić.

    Sjećanja izvezena u Balama - Memories embroidered in Bale

    Exhibition of traditional handicrafts

    Women\'s handicrafts in Istria are primarily reflected in the decoration of usable textile items.
    Usable objects were simply decorated with a monochrome connection in accordance with the economic circumstances of the late 19th and early 20th century. And it is this period that the interesting exhibition taking place in the town of Bale covers. Items once owned by Bale families convey deep social values that have been kept for generations, thus representing a common cultural heritage.

    Women from Bale used to decorate towels, bed linen, nightgowns and underwear, children\'s clothes, ornaments for kitchen hoods and curtains. The lack of free time and financial means limited the ornaments to the "necessary", but there was not a girl who did not prepare her wedding trousseau, beginning with bed linen and the "buon giorno" towel should there be need of a sudden visit from a doctor, extending to the "sugaman dei morti" used to cover their dearly beloved and honouring the deceased and the whole family.

    The manual work of Istrian women, apart from functionality, followed the yearly and daily cycle of customs to a greatest extent. This thread is also followed in this exhibition. The technical and aesthetic simplicity of the exhibited items presented, tell the tale of a difficult, laborious life and the power of folk art that goes beyond everyday life, becoming part of history.

    Nuns taught young girls their embroidery skills. Along with work in the field, helping in the home and learning at school, it was also necessary for them to learn how to embroider in order to prepare their own trousseau.

    Preparation of the trousseau and wedding
    One of the breaking moments in each girl\'s life was marriage. Girls would prepare for that day from the earliest age. They had to prepare the "every day" bed linen and at least one other ceremonial set for the first wedding night, of course. Towels were used mainly during doctor\'s visits or during childbirth or in case of illness, and were therefore specially adorned. The wealth of the trousseau was reflected in the number of objects and the elaboration of the decoration on them. The most common was white embroidery using a flat stitch and a cross stitch to create initials and the inscription "Buon giorno" on the towels. Although less often, lace was made using a knitting, unfolding technique or bought lace was sewn onto a canvas. Although there were earlier cases, especially in wealthy families, from the mid 20th century a girl’s dowry was paid by her parents.

    Sea Star Festival

    Music festival by Exit

    Are you yearning for a crazy, entertaining and unforgettable summer?! Then it would appear that you do not have to wait long, because a party on a world scale will be organised on the Adriatic coast this May. Superb music, well-known organisers and more than 70 performers over six stages. Where? In Umag, at the Sea Star Festival from the 24th to the 27th May!

    The organisers of one of the world’s best festivals, Novi Sad’s Exit, are coming to Umag, and in this way will connect the two regions through their mission, which was successfully initiated back in 2014.

    Some of the world’s most famous performers will appear at Umag’s famous sport and entertainment centre, Stella Maris and one of the most popular local performers. Six different stages will allow everyone to choose something for themselves.

    A great warming party will begin on Thursday, May 24, and partying will continue until Sunday, May 27, at the after party.

    Instead of sea stars, the first wave will bring real music stars, and one of today’s best live acts – Hurts – voted by audience choice as best act at the gigantic Glastonbury Festival over bands like U2 and Coldplay! Along with them, the festival will welcome killer hit-maker Robin Schulz, who has been shaking dance floors at festivals all across Europe, and who has already been proclaimed the heir to famous David Guetta for his ability to make a world-class party and publish a new hit every few months!

    To make sure the hits will come by the dozen, we’ve brought hot London trio Disciples and French duo Ofenbach with their infectious hits!

    To make the party even more intense, in addition to dance hits, colossal hip-hop beats will rock the festival thanks to Zagreb greats Tram 11, Balkan rap guru Edo Maajka, hip-hop queen Sajsi MC, Dalmatia’s favourite Dječaci, and Split’s peerless beatmaster Krešo Bengalka.

    Let\'s get the party started!

    8th Beside u jatu

    Literary event of Chakavian poetry

    The meeting of Barban\'s poets is a one-day event of gathering Barban\'s poets and presenting the collection „Beside u jatu“. In 2011, for the first time there was a meeting of Barban\'s poets with the idea and the wish of the organisers to give the people of Barban a possibility to extract poems from their drawers, perhaps written even long ago, maybe just created or for their lyrics to be visible and as chosen, printed in a common collection of songs. It is a wish that this poetic encounter becomes a traditional gathering of Barban\'s poets. Topics are diverse, depending on the personality, experience, knowledge, environments, and so on views of the world and the way of thinking of poets. It is interesting, and not surprisingly, that love prevails, love in all modalities. Each year, every generation is represented in the meeting, and this really was the intent; that the collection contains the lyrics of Barban\'s poets of all ages and generations.

    3. Rovinj Beach Polo Cup 2018

    Sports and entertainment spectacle

    Rovinj looks forward to seeing you in June with an attractive sporting event  - the Beach Polo Tournament, the only polo event organised in this part of the world.

    This unique event will take place on the northern shores of Rovinj, close to Porton Biondi where the tournament arena will be set up, whilst the vicinity of the old town centre will also contribute to the overall event.

    The first tournament of this kind took place in 2004 in Dubai and then again in 2005 on the beaches of Miami, followed by Belgium, England, Wales, Chile, Ireland and Uruguay... The rules are slightly different from traditional polo, although the main goal is to score a goal against the opposing team.

    Four international teams will take part in the beach polo tournament, and instead of four players, each team will have three players. Players on horseback with the help of a long stick will try to take a small leather ball filled with air to the goal of the opposing team.

    Beach polo usually involves more manoeuvrability and shorter passes at lower speeds because of the arena space. On each side of the field are goals made of easily overthrown goalposts set at a distance of 7 metres.

    The game lasts 30 minutes and is divided into four time periods or chukkas. Teams change the side of the field they have been playing at the end of each chukka and replace tired horses so that up to 48 horses may be needed for the game.

    The days of the Beach Polo Tournament bring with them quite unusual events, and visitors are certain to enjoy Saturday\'s polo parade along the coast of Rovinj.

    Rules of the game:
    The Rovinj tournament is played according to the Hurlingham rules.
    The game consists of chukkas (the word comes from the Hindi term chakkar from Sanskrit chakra which means circle or wheel) lasting 4-6 minutes.

    When playing on the polo field, the teams form a line with the players set to form 1, 2, 3 against each other, with a judge who performs all of his duties while standing off the field.

    Teams change the side they play on the field after each chukka. Sides are changed to reduce the benefits that the wind might bring, if there is wind, so that each team has a fair chance to start the game from the right, the easier side. All players have to play using their right hand (play using the left hand was abolished for security reasons in 1975).

    Each team player has a specific role and they are marked with numbers 1, 2, 3.
    Number 1 has an offensive-oriented position on the field and should cover the opposing team’s number 3. Number 2 has an important role in the attack – when galloping he breaks forward and scores goals either alone or by passing the ball to the number 1, covering him by riding behind him.
    In defence number 2 covers the opponent’s number 3, which is also the opposing team’s best player.

    Number 3 is a tactical leader who should have a powerful shot with a far-reaching range in order to easily be able to pass the ball to his number 2 and number 1. Number 3 is normally the team’s best player and has the highest handicap, having the role of main player in defence, which otherwise in polo tournaments would have a fourth player.

    Town of Hum Celebration - the smallest town in the world

    Election of the major of Hum

    According to legend Hum, the medieval town also known as the smallest town in the world, was founded completely by chance. Giants that were at the time building neighboring towns in the Mirna River valley decided to use the few remaining rocks and build a miniature town.

    This little town hasn\'t changed much over the centuries, and it seems as if even today the narrow stone-paved streets echo the tales of ancient knights. Each year on the Day of Hum all men from the parish elect their prefect in the municipal loggia according to the old tradition, by engraving votes on the wooden stick known as ‘raboš’. The town prefect is responsible for his parish, for settling disputes among residents and imposing penalties for disorderly conduct in Hum and the surrounding villages. And then to top it all, the election is followed by a folk festival where in the untouched, wonderful surrounding there is a chance to taste both the finest traditional dishes and well-known homemade wine and brandy. Hum is also the mecca of Croatian Glagolitism where you can see the first monuments and trace the very beginnings of Croatian literacy, as well as get to know the old Croatian alphabet ‘glagoljica’.

In the middle of the 17th century Istria was hit by black plague and malaria so the last three families left Dvigrad in 1714.

    Zlatni lav - Golden Lion

    19th International chamber theatre festival

    The streets and squares in Umag become the stage to the numerous theatre fleets from Croatia, Slovenia, Italia, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Macedonia. In this period, the streets live their lives fully thanks to the Golden Lion, the international chamber theatre festival.

    This multicultural event that gathers numerous writers, directors, choreographers, set designers, composers and of course, actors, chose Umag, a city of a long theatre tradition, as its home town. Namely, in 1820, while Antonio Coslovich was building the Al Leon d\'oro hotel, it was decided that he should also set the theatre next to the hotel, the first of its kind in the region.

    The Golden Lion, envisaged as the modern theatre review with a set theme, became the real tourist attraction and a bait for all theatre and culture aficionados. 

    The whole 10-day theatrical story begins with the traditional lighting up the fire in the park belonging to the town theatre, and the Umag theatre afterwards is lively all day long, up to the night.

    The event called The old fair below the castle - wine and fun festival is held at the end of June in the old town of Vrsar, on the premises around the old town gate, on the squares and little streets heading to the church, and on the stunning lookouts of Vrsar.

The hosts, dressed in medieval costumes, present brief accounts of the history of Vrsar, particularly curiosities from the 1609 Vrsar Statute. The Statute defined the rules of living in Vrsar at that time, such as regulations on: the way taverns worked, wine quality control, town gates opening and closing times, the control of foreigners entering the town, hygiene and municipal order etc.

    Melodies of Istria and Kvarner

    Music festival 

    MIK stands for "Melodies of Istria and Kvarner". Each year the festival acts as guest in towns of Istria and Kvarner, the regions that cover three different counites in the west part of Croatia.

    It is a festival based on ethnic music of place which it takes part in, i.e. the music which root is in the so-called "Istrian scale", maybe one of the most interesting music pheomena in the world. The songs only touch the elements of such a characteristic tune in a fluent and pleasent way.

    How popular the festival of MIK is among its audience could be seen best at the over-crowded concerts, when the festival is being held on squares of seven to eleven towns every year.

    But it is not only the ethnic music that gives a special charm to the festival. The texts of songs are mostly written in "cakavica", the oldest form of Croatian language which is spoken in this part of Croatia. Besides "cakavica" a dialect of the Italian language is spoken by the Italian minority who lives here.

    Early music festival

    In the early Middle Ages two towns existed here, of which only one, Dvigrad-Duecastelli, was populated throughout the entire medieval period, until the 17th century. Its exciting history started with a Roman settlement and continued with various owners in the middle ages. In the middle of the 17th century Istria was hit by black plague and malaria so the last three families left Dvigrad in 1714. The town with two rings of walls, several ramparts and remains of the early Christian church of St Sophia will be, just for short, awaken again with sounds of this early music festival.

    Spectacvla Antiqva

    Gladiators fights

    The Arena in Pula is the sixth biggest edifice among the similar preserved buildings in the world, and it could have accepted approximately 23 000 viewers. In the Roman Empire, such buildings were erected for entertainment in watching the cruel gladiator games and fighting with wild beasts.

    The bought gladiators were usually criminals, war prisoners and slaves trained for fights whose only purpose was to amuse the audience, not to beat the enemy right away. The entrance of the gladiators was a magnificent show of golden armour, cloaks with a colour that resembled red wine and the fourhorse carriage decorated with pheasant plumage, accompanied by the sounds of trumpets. Their look, with metal armour and the helmets at their heads, was intimidating, and in that way they celebrated the power and the fearless appearance.

    When a gladiator proved himself by multiple victories, he could gain the wooden sword of freedom. Such gladiators enjoyed a great fame by the emperors and the people. They could either continue fighting or train the new gladiators.

    Spectacvla Antiqva takes place in Pula\'s amphitheater once a week, from the end of June to the beginning of September, except during the Pula Film Festival. In the evening hours the Arena becomes the site of gladiator fights, workshops, visitors have a chance to see ancient Roman clothing and hairstyles while a narrator explains everything to them.

    In addition to presenting the tradition and heritage, Roman history and civilization come alive in the Arena. All those interested can even enjoy gladiator fights with real weapons. Visitors can buy original souvenirs, replicas of ancient Roman pottery and mosaics.

    Ticket prices: 70 kuna, children 30 kuna

    Parkfest

    Sound festival

    If you just can\'t decide what time of the year to visit Novigrad – do it in June and don\'t miss one of the biggest festivals in this part of Istria, the PARKFEST Sound Festival. Ten parks in Novigrad will become a stage gathering culture creators all day long with the objective of creating sound … or perhaps silence. As with previous annual incarnations, the event will feature many top performers from the music and art scene and will offer a venue for the affirmation of young new performers (musicians, artists, actors, children and others).

    The event evokes the creation of sound themes in:
    Stage plays
    Children\'s workshops
    Yoga workshops (mantras)
    Art installations and performances
    And, of course, music itself, i.e. concerts.

    Parkfest emerged from a passion for music, socialising, Novigrad. It has been staged for the past decade by enthusiasts with different artistic and social activity background gathered in the Mokar prst (Wet Finger) Association. The members of the association will perform in their own productions of sound installations and acts.

    The open-air nature of the festival and that fact that it takes place in public areas around the town gives this event a very specific sound that also includes all the variety of street life. It is accessible to all, entry to all events is free of charge and there is a strong focus on interaction with the audience and audience participation in various activities. You too can be a part of the story in its unfolding…

    Dvigrad Festival: Io son dolce sirena

    Early music festival

    In the early Middle Ages two towns existed here, of which only one, Dvigrad-Duecastelli, was populated throughout the entire medieval period, until the 17th century. Its exciting history started with a Roman settlement and continued with various owners in the middle ages. In the middle of the 17th century Istria was hit by black plague and malaria so the last three families left Dvigrad in 1714. The town with two rings of walls, several ramparts and remains of the early Christian church of St Sophia will be, just for short, awaken again with sounds of this early music festival.

    Armonike zad Kastela - Accordions Behind the Castle

    24th encounter of self-taught accordion players

    If you ever pass near Žminj on the second Saturday in July, than you should not miss the meeting of Istrian self-taught accordions players, officially named \'Accordions at Kastel\' and unofficially \'The wedding of accordions\'.

    This meeting is not competitive and the only prizes are applauses and ovations of the public, which is always present in a large number here in Žminj. On that day it is possible to hear from the Kastel the sounds of polka and to see waltz and \'balun\', the Istrian wheel dance. According to the tradition, the concert should be officially opened with the performance of one local musician, while the end is being left to the debutants. Seen that most of the musicians already became \'local stars\', and that they are also frequent guests at the weddings and parties, people usually welcome them with great applause and ovations.
    The end of the official part of the program is celebrated with the performance of a group of about forty accordions, which is the usual number of the participants, but that is not all because the party continues till the early morning with the local songs and performances.

    Medulinka

    Old traditional fest and wedding celebration

    The merry and dynamic summer festival Medulinka brings back to life the old wedding customs of southern and middle Istria through music, dramatic re-enactment and gastronomy. The story portrays the marriage of a girl from Medulin to a boy from Pazin.

    The members of the wedding procession, dressed in national costumes, parade through Medulin, stopping every so often to sing and dance in exactly the same way the old wedding processions of this Istrian region used to do. And while in Medulin Luca is dressing and getting ready for the wedding celebration, accompanied by the sounds of the sopela (flute) and mih (bagpipe) and two-part singing, Frane, the groom, has arrived from Pazin with his wedding guests, to collect his bride. But the people of Medulin refuse to surrender her. Namely, Istrian wedding customs dictated that the bride was not to be surrendered easily, that is, the groom’s wedding guests had to be challenged to song and dance. So, the people of Medulin would dance, and the people of Pazin answer them with their own dancing. The bride’s guests from Medulin would sing loudly, but the groom’s guests would sing even louder...

    After some interesting negotiations had been conducted by an elderly member of the procession, followed by much singing and dancing, the young couple were finally brought together. The wedding cake was thrown, and the bride and groom, escorted to a batana boat, with which they were literally launched into bridal waters.

    Alpe Adria Oberkrainer fest

    Performance of folklore orchestras

    If you decide to visit Oprtalj, the highest Istrian town in mid July, when Alpe Adria Folk Festival breathes life into the Medieval streets and nearby hillocks overlooking central Istria and the valley of the river of Mirna, a combination of polkas and waltzes from Istria and the Alps will delight your heart and soul.

    Apart from the notes of traditional musical instruments, Oprtalj is also home to the fair of black truffle and homemade products, further enhanced by a visual arts exhibition and entertaining and sports activities organized by the townsfolk. This historical town will be visited by performers from different regions: Istria, northern parts of Croatia, Slovenia, Italy, Austria, Switzerland, southern Germany-all countries nurturing the joyful musical tradition of the Alps. For over a decade, the Oprtalj audience has been welcoming the big stars, international folk orchestras and young accordion and trumpet players with equal enthusiasm. The boundaries and years break down before the desire to preserve the folk tradition written in the melodies and songs of the mountain dwellers.

    Apart from the musical tradition, the simultaneously held fair of the black truffle and agricultural products simply tempts you to sample all the flavours. The alluring smell of aphrodisiac mushrooms growing in the Mirna valley like jewels hidden beneath the ground entices you to try them in olive oil, honey, cakes or authentic Istrian specialties.

    Once the last strokes of polka and waltz fade away, there will be a promotional tasting of truffle omelettes, called fritaje in the Istrian dialect, with industrious cooks also offering homemade pasta fuži and pljukanci or Istrian meat specialties paired with a drop of exquisite Istrian wines.

    Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes

    Religious festivity

    The folk festivity of Our Lady of Lourdes in the village of Radini nearby Brtonigla has been commemorating the appearance of the Virgin Mary for over eighty years. Our Lady of Lourdes allegedly appeared in 1922 to a local woman Marina Pirovich, who communicated to the pastor the wish to build a church in Mary’s honour. Although her story invoked religious fervour in the hearts of other inhabitants who supported the idea, the priest remained unconvinced until the pleas were finally granted by the next pastor Roberto Galetti.

    The entire village participated in the construction. The wealthier families of Radini provided the land, stone was taken from the nearby quarry and the altar was designed by an unknown architect from the town of Pula who translated a vision of the cave in France in which little Beatrice saw Our Lady of Lourdes for the first time, to Radini. In 1929, the villagers organized a festivity in honour of the new church, attracting numerous pilgrims.

    The first procession with the statue of the Virgin Mary paraded through the village accompanied with dancing and fair is thought to have occurred on that occasion. While festivities were once eagerly anticipated by children, because it was the only period they could get an ice-cream, nowadays Radini offer homemade cakes, Istrian dishes and premium wines of Northwestern Istria with loads of sports-entertainment activities.

    Large numbers of amateur athletes are drawn by attractive bicycle ride for children and adults, volleyball tournament or almost forgotten “pljočkanje” – an old Istrian game played with flat stones.

    We are never out of occasions for celebration – with the blessing of Our Lady of Lourdes, the people form Radini always manage to re-awaken their spirit, realizing that together they can do “miracles\'.

    Wealthy Romans built their holiday villas on these shores, and the village itself was a trading port for Istria and Venice for centuries, due to its unique location in a shallow bay. That’s why it was called Karigador, or “golden loading port” in Italian. Nowadays, its inhabitants are opening their homes to guests wishing to spend their vacation here, and a large camp for nature enthusiasts was opened in the preserved natural environment by the sea.

    Karigador nights guarantee pleasant relaxation at the height of the summer season to all visitors – the beach is within easy reach, just like excellent Istrian wines, seafood specialties and live music.

    A torchlight procession passing through the most beautiful parts of Karigador shore will ensure moments to cherish forever. A nice promenade by the sea will bring you to the festivity, where you will be enveloped by the hum of the crowds and irresistible aroma of specialities.

    Jakovlja

    Folk festival and Istrian cattle fair

    Today a folk festivity, once a fair on St. Jacob\'s Day, Jakovlja truly has a long tradition. With the aim of preserving Istrian folk heritage, the local fair ground in Kanfanar becomes the venue for the traditional fair of Istrian oxen that takes place on Jakovlja. The Istrian ox descends from the extinct primeval ox that was once prevalent in Istria. This ox of pure breed is believed to be the largest mammal in Europe and one of the most beautiful in the whole world. It is well known as a meek animal that has always been the most important farm animal in Istria. Boškarini graze and browse on almost everything on this soil, so thanks to them forests and pastureland once looked like parks.

    The parade of Istrian oxen is the most entertaining part of St. Jacob’s Day in Kanfanar. The long tradition of celebrating St. Jacob’s Day begins with a rare parade of oxen, accompanied by a brass band and majorettes. Some of the oxen draw old farm waggons, carrying folk singers and dancers, wine barrels and ploughs. The nostalgic scene of past times and customs passes through Kanfanar to the site where the cattle are weighed, with the heaviest animal winning first prize. An ox-ploughing competition takes places on a nearby field for the best score in obedience. The merry parade then heads back to the fairgrounds, where a jury examines each head of cattle in the beauty category. Finally, winners in all three categories are announced. Adding to the fun of the parade, folk music and dance are a variety of daylong activities, such as bicycling, a bocce ball tournament, a clay pigeon shooting contest and a selection of gastronomic specialties.

    During the festival, visitors will be able to visit a medieval fair, learn about old crafts and skills, taste traditional dishes, but also try using a bow and arrow, crossbow and many other traditional games. When the door to the knight camps open, look around and learn about medieval equipment and real knights’ weapons.

    Celebration of St. Lawrence

    Folk festivity

    Every village in Istria has its own festivity and the inhabitants of Nova Vas, one of the oldest and largest villages in Brtonigla, celebrate the holiday of Saint Lawrence. Every August, this religious festivity brings merriment to the local population, accompanied not only with music and dancing, but also with an attractive hiking route across the nearby hillocks overlooking the largest river in Istria - Mirna.

    The historical fortifications in the surroundings are testimonies of life in Antiquity and the inhabitants will tell you that their settlement was established as early as in the 16th ct. in the vicinity of scattered older villages. Saint Michael and Dionysius were celebrated for decades, but nowadays, only the festivity of Saint Lawrence remains, although his church is located in the neighbouring Pavići.

    On this holiday, the villagers gather at the church in Pavići to listen to the holy mass and a long time ago, the statute of the saint would be carried to Nova Vas. One hour before sundown, the locals would return the statute to its rightful place. Afterwards, dancing wood take place on a specially made wooden floor, with children circling the ice-cream sellers and carousels.

    There will be no lack of Istrian specialties, desserts, wine and dancing at modern “Lovrečeva”, as the feast of St. Lawrence is referred to in Istria. The Italian community organizes fun activities for children and adults in the evening, while amateur athletes compete in popular football or go hiking.

    Mountaneering to Skitača

    The traditional hiking tour from Labin to Skitača takes place on the Labin Town Day. The tour starts at 8 PM from the main square in Labin Old town. On Assumption Day enjoy the inspiring landscapes of Labin area and the most spectacular views on islands Cres and Lošinj, Mount Učka, cape Kamenjak and the Raša River mouth.

    Tourist-walking paths, called Sage Trail and St. Lucy’s Trail, dedicated to the saint patroness of the eponymous 17th century church, are located on Skitača.
    Hear the legend on St. Lucy’s healing water- the said saint is the patroness of eyesight and eyes. The legend says that St. Lucy asked the locals to build the church dedicated to her on the site. They kept postponing her wish so the saint climbed the near-by hill, sat on a rock and started crying. Tired and exhausted, she eventually fell asleep. When she woke up the next morning she noticed a small pit (školnica) filled with water, so she washed her face. Since then, water from this pit has never dried up, and numerous pilgrims, the blind and visually impaired, visit the well.
    Refreshment and resting place available from one of the most beautiful mountaineering dorms in Croatia run by PD Skitaci from Labin.

    Street Art Festival

    Festival of street performers

    A well-known fact is that Mediterranean life prefers the outdoors, especially streets to the indoors, houses. Streets have always been the site for conversations, courtship, arguments and singing, and although perhaps people were not aware of this, streets and squares were in fact a kind of stage. The new era has brought along new customs, but the desire for liveliness in the streets still remains. Street Art wants to bring to life once again the streets, squares and promenades of Poreč filling them with dance, street theater, installations, film projections, video installations, music... During the month of August, in the streets and squares of Poreč you will encounter numerous artists who, inspired by this lovely town, will display their works and imagination.

    Bartulja - St. Bartholomew’s Fest

    Folk festival

    Bartulja in Žminj is the best known and the most popular today’s folk festivity in Istria with at least centennial tradition probably reaching back far into the past. It used to be celebrated on St. Bartholomew’s Day on 24 August, but in time people started gathering the last Saturday in August to meet in large numbers.

    Nevertheless, St. Bartholomew’s Day is still celebrated with a mass held in the church of the saint right at the entrance to Žminj. The point of every Bartulja, both in the past and today, is actually the gathering of people from Žminj in their native place. It is the day when they return to their homes in order to gather around their fireplaces, meet their relatives and friends, have a talk and take a walk around the place. Older people recall that just before Bartulja they would clean their house every day after the harvest and after working in the field so that it would look nice and ready for their relatives and guests.

    Young artists can set up their mobile installations on the sea and on batanas (flat-bottomed boats) and are in charge of their "mobile art" with the additional dynamics of colour and movement being achieved from light show projections. Illuminated predominantly in blue, the batanas moored in the harbour also become part of the works of art of imaginative artists, decorated with installations mostly made of useful materials, whilst the sea becomes an interesting gallery for this special visual experience.

    A cocktail party with a crazy cocktail show will take place on the waterfront, led by the skilled hands of some of Croatia’s finest barmen. Enveloped by the intoxicating fragrance of blue fish, during the evening gourmet visitors will be able to taste culinary delights of sardines, one of the symbols of Fažana, and listen to the rhythms of pop, blues, rock and roll, evergreen and country music.

    The vivid events at Montraker are also interesting to a tourist or an accidental passer-by. It is worth climbing to the top of the hill above the quarry and take a glance on the young masters turning a lump of stone into harmonic sculpture forms. Under the sun heat, while the new shapes of Istrian stone are appearing before your eyes, you have the opportunity to take a look into the eternal mystery of artistic creation.

    Year after year, the sculpting school affirms Vrsar as a perfect spot for artistic inspiration, an ideal refuge for creativity, magic and creation. The harmonic white sculptures decorate public spaces, the waterfront and the parks, providing a permanent mark to lively identity of this small town.

    Subotina in an old fashioned way

    Old-time folk festivity

    Subotina or Journey into the Past

    In September, on the Nativity of the Virgin Mary, streets and squares of the old town of Buzet turn into a historic stage. All participants of this event wear original folk costumes and clothes resembling townspeople at the turn of the 20th century. The sound of traditional Istrian music is accompanied by the irresistible sweet smell of delicacies that surely satisfy the palate of even the most demanding visitor.

    In such a scenography of the past set within the old town walls you can take part in a variety of ethno-workshops of ancient and nearly forgotten crafts, so-called ethno-trails of ancient crafts . Right in front of your eyes carpenters, coopers, shoemakers, tailors, comb-makers, basket-weavers, wavers, oil producers and pharmacists, as well as other masters of ancient crafts demonstrate skills that have been preserved to this very day.

    Apart from the ethno-trail you can also choose the gastro, eno or art trail or even mead trail. Tempting flavours on the gastro-trail are those of vegetable stews maneštre, pasta fuži, cheese, truffles dishes, boneless pork loin ombolo, sausages and many other irresistible delicacies. On the no-trail be sure to taste the finest wines of Istrian wine-makers, whereas the mead trail introduces you to the quality of products prepared in a traditional way such as honey, olive-oil, herb brandy, herbs and herbal tea.

    After a hearty meal and fine wine, there\'s nothing like great fun, and those who will make sure you have a good time are jugglers, street entertainers, musicians, accordion players, folk dancers and actors presenting plays in the local dialect. But, that\'s not all - there\'s also a parade with typical characters from the past: street sweepers, firemen, chimney sweepers, ice-cream vendors, photographers... Visit the exhibition of folklore, souvenirs and jewellery in the town museums and stalls, or you can even try your luck at bocce or a game of cards briškula or trešeta.

    This unique time machine will surely bring back the old days to remind everyone what life was like back then.

    Day of Fažana\'s Parish: Feast of Saints Cosmas and Damian

    Church and folk festivity

    Under the stone "mast" of the bell tower, the square in front of Fažana\'s Parish Church of SS. Cosmas and Damian resembles a ship deck which by the local fishing tradition and new challenges communicates in a special way with time and generations of its inhabitants and guests. The figures of the patron saints of this parish, recorded in documents since 1150, greet us from the relief on the stone facade above the church entrance. Most probably twin brothers, Cosmas and Damian were holy physicians who were born in Arabia and studied medicine in Syria. They practiced the art of healing without charging fees, preaching Christianity in the area of Aegean Cilicia in present-day Turkey. They treated people and animals and accepted no payment for their services, and as Christians were sentenced to death and beheaded in 303. The feast day of Saints Cosmas and Damian is celebrated on September 26.
