I was here for a spiritual experience. I visited the churches in this place and felt spiritually uplifted. I later visited the lake which was the main supply of water in the whole region. My guide here was knowledgeable and friendly.
From Grimelde we enjoyed the panoramic views of the whole Istria. We are glad to have visited this place as we felt the Istrian vibe through the food specialities and Mediterranean wines offered here. Will definitely come back for more.
The churches dedicated to St George helped us grow our faith in God and even replenish our beliefs and Faith in God. We toured the large Blue Accumulation Lake and true to therapists, water is a stress reliever and a relaxant. Our trip at the lake turned out to be therapeutic.
