Zminj holidays

Sitting pretty on a limestone hill between the Lim and Raša valleys, you’ll come across Žminj. An old town intersects with landscaped areas, while folk traditions and speciality cuisines come together to inspire locals and holidaymakers. Old Istrian houses create a postcard scene. There are even cycling and hiking routes for sporty types!

Idyllic Istria

Past meadows and weaving rows of old-fashioned houses, there’s a homely feel to Žminj. It’s a good pick for bike trails and walking routes, so you can stay sporty. Sure, it’s got a trio of churches to discover, but go underground at the Feštinsko Kraljevstvo and explore the incredible cave network.

A flavour to savour

If you’re into cheese and wine, indulge yourself in a bar that’s run by a local family. Their farm’s produce makes up the menu, so you’ll be in for a rich treat. With Istria’s links to Italy, try portions of plump gnocchi with rocket and pancetta. Venison is a typical favourite, too.
