Hilltop village near Pazin
An important town located in the centre of Istria. The castle in Pazin is the best preserved medieval fortress in Istria. It was first mentioned in written documents in 983. Located in the castle are the Ethnograhic Museum of Istria and the Museum of Pazin. Under the walls of the castle lies the entrance to the Pazin cave through which flows an underground river that inspired Jules Verne to give Pazin Castle and cave a central role in his novel Mathias Sandorf (1885). There is a 1.3km walking path through the canyon which includes sightseeing within the cave. If you like some excitement with the zip wire criss crossing the dramatic canyon below the castle is reason enough to visit Pazin and a major attraction to the town.
