Vodnjan is a small place located in the southwest of Istria, near the town of Pula. For many centuries, Vodnjan was the most important city in southern Istria, even more important than Pula until the middle of the 19th century. It is interesting that today Vodnjan is also called the city of murals. Beautifully and systematically painted streets tell you new stories as you walk through the city.Vodnjan, this charming medieval town, boasts several interesting, world-famous buildings. Namely, people from all over the world come to see the church of St. Jacob- the largest and one of the most important churches with the highest bell tower in Istria, which houses the world-famous collection of relics and preserved mummified bodies of saints.The beautiful Vodnjan area is characterized by the famous Istrian "kazhuni" (small stone houses), built in the old traditional drywall technique, and the production of high quality wines and excellent award-winning olive oil. In addition to excellent gastronomy and oenology, here you can enjoy numerous outdoor activities such as hiking and biking on numerous groomed trails (which stretch for more than 120 kilometers!) That offer you a first-hand experience of Vodnjan and Istria.
