    The Great War in the Adriatic

    01.01.2018 - 31.12.2018, Novigrad-Cittanova, Brtonigla-Verteneglio



    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.

  • 16.12.2018 — Buje-Buie — Parenzana Trace Walking Tour

    Parenzana Trace Walking Tour

    16.12.2018, Buje-Buie



    116 years ago, on December 15, 1902, a train covered the route between Buje and Poreč for the first time, driving along the at the time new narrow gauge railroad Parenzana. It was thus that the second section of the railroad previously connecting Trieste and Poreč was put into operation. With the total length of 123 kilometres, it wound through the green istrian landscapes, connecting 33 Istrian settlements.

    Over the last ten years, parts of Parenzana were transformed into a hiking and bicycle trail, unique for the viaducts, tunnels and railway stations preserved along the route, dating back to the time when it was daily thundered through by a small locomotive.

    Commemorating the 116th anniversary of the first train ride between Buje and Poreč, the Tourist Board of the Town of Buje is organizing a hiking campaign from Buje to Grožnjan and back, along the restored route of the Parenzana.

    The start is in front of the old railroad station in Buje at 10 a.m. and trail-side refreshments are ensured for all participants.

    It was once called the Adriatic Highway and connected the northern Adriatic with Dalmatia. Today is called Istarsko Proljeće - Istrian Spring as the entire route passes through Istria.
    In the last couple of years the race has consisted of four sections: a prologue and three stages. While the prologue consists of several kilometres in which sprinters come to the fore with the aim of winning the first leaders T-shirt, other stages offer a number of curiosities. Organisers do not want to exclude anyone: on this race both mountain riders and sprinters come out as well as those who like escapes. Over the four days the race goes around Istria, mainly through its interior, although it does not bypass the coast either.

    Professional and continental category teams are usually the main participants in the Istrian Spring race among which future champions and winners of stages on the Tour de France, the Giro d\'Italia and the Vuelta a España can often be found hiding.

    Weekend Bike and Gourmet Tour

    06.04.2019 - 07.04.2019, Rovinj-Rovigno



    Riding a bicycle is a pleasure in itself. And when added to that is the possibility of tasting Istrian delicacies, wine and olive oils, then the pleasure multiplies. That is exactly what the Weekend Bike & Gourmet Tour amateur cycling experience offers and which takes place twice a year, in spring and autumn.

    Where to ride and where to enjoy? Relax because the professional guide who will follow you throughout the two-day race organised by the Town of Rovinj Tourist Board, the Town of Rovinj Association of Craftsmen and the Maistra Hotel Company will take care of everything. The Weekend Bike & Gourmet Tour is intended for all amateur cyclists, regardless of whether they participate on mountain, trekking or e-bikes. But, don\'t worry if you don’t have these kind of bikes because the race also offers the option of renting electric bicycles at an extra cost.

    The entrance-fee includes meals and drinks at the various gourmet break points envisaged by the program (Istrian Brunch and Istrian Picnic), riding along with program followers and the professional guide, an accompanying vehicle, a cycling map and, of course, an occasional gift.

    In order to satisfy all competitors, the organisers have foreseen two itineraries: a 111 km long Sport race, which is designed for the more hardy, whilst the 82 km long Hobby race is designed for those who are a little less fit.

    Each itinerary consists of two trails: the Mare is a trail where you can enjoy seaside delicacies, while the Monti trail offers participants gastronomic treats of the Istrian interior. Both the start and finish are in front of the Eden Hotel, and the trail is on a macadam road in the vicinity of Rovinj and Bale.

     

    Time: Start at 10.00 a.m. (Saturday and Sunday) from the parking lot of the sports centre of the Eden hotel

    Trail length (km):

    100 miles of Istria: Red course

    12.04.2019, Labin - Umag



    The 100 miles course is the hardest and the most beautiful course that we offer. It stretches from the eastern part of Istria, over its highest mountain down to the mainland, and ends on the western part of the peninsula in the city of Umag.

    Along the route you will experience every possible aspect of trail running - really technical terrain, a little bit of coastering, old medieval towns, deep forests, city centres, old train route, muddy valleys, all spiced up with breathtaking panoramas. The course starts in the 3000 years old town Labin, climbs the Učka mountain and descends in Buzet where your drop bag will wait for you.

    After the well-deserved rest, the trail leads you to the smallest town in the world, the town of Hum,  then to the medieval pearl Motovun and back to the finish in Umag.

    169,5 km with 6.632 m doesn’t seem so hard but trust us, this course is very demanding and it shouldn’t be taken lightly.

    Welcome to the 7th edition of the ultra trail race 100 miles of Istria!

    Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes

    20.07.2019 - 21.07.2019, Radini (Brtonigla-Verteneglio)



    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\'.

    The route winds through the surroundings of Brtonigla and the coastal part of Northwest Istria; it is around 30 kilometres long and conceived so as to acquaint the participants with all the variety of the local area - from the hinterland hamlets to the Adriatic coast and its tourist attractions.

    Starting in Radini, the trail leads east through the villages of Lukoni, Buroli and Karšete to the small town of Brtonigla, the centre of the region. The next larger settlement is Nova Vas, at which the route turns west - through the villages of Pavići, Turini, Marinčići and Fiorini all the way to the sea, that is the village of Karigador and the renowned camp CamingIN Park Umag, followed by the ride to yet another coastal town, Lovrečica, and return to Radini.

    The Radini bicycle ride is primarily intended for adults and takes some two and a half hours to complete. A lottery with a rich fund of awards is in plan, with the youngest and the oldest participants getting special recognitions. Participation is at your own risk.

    26.07.2019 - 27.07.2019, Kanfanar



    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.

    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.

Afterwards, dancing wood take place on a specially made wooden floor, with children circling the ice-cream sellers and carousels.

    Bela nedelja - White Sunday

    06.10.2019, Plomin (Kršan)



    The ancient town of Plomin has proudly overlooked Plomin Bay for centuries as testimony to the people who have created its culture and life as we know it today.
    On the feast of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary, the Plomin Parish celebrates its patron saint, together with White Sunday. Traditionally every year people come from all areas to renew old friendships and to take a break from their hectic lives, to enjoy programs filled with songs and a number of sporting events.

    White Sunday is a traditional religious and folk festival, which has meant a lot to the people of Plomin since ancient times, and is celebrated on the first Sunday in October. The day of festivities begins with a Mass in honour of the Blessed Virgin Mary, whilst during the day entertainment and sporting events alternate between themselves. It used to mark Plomin’s big fair day, when the town was visited by people from Rijeka and from Trieste too, presenting and selling their own products.
    Although the fair tradition has been lost, White Sunday has continued to maintain its importance for local inhabitants and everyone with Plomin in their hearts.

    Weekend Bike and Gourmet Tour

    12.10.2019 - 13.10.2019, Rovinj-Rovigno



    Riding a bicycle is a pleasure in itself. And when added to that is the possibility of tasting Istrian delicacies, wine and olive oils, then the pleasure multiplies. That is exactly what the Weekend Bike & Gourmet Tour amateur cycling experience offers and which takes place twice a year, in spring and autumn.

    Where to ride and where to enjoy? Relax because the professional guide who will follow you throughout the two-day race will take care of everything. The Weekend Bike & Gourmet Tour is intended for all amateur cyclists, regardless of whether they participate on mountain, trekking or e-bikes. But, don\'t worry if you don’t have these kind of bikes because the race also offers the option of renting electric bicycles at an extra cost.

    The entrance-fee includes meals and drinks at the various gourmet break points envisaged by the program (Istrian Brunch and Istrian Picnic), riding along with program followers and the professional guide, an accompanying vehicle, a cycling map and, of course, an occasional gift.

    Each itinerary consists of two trails: the Mare is a trail where you can enjoy seaside delicacies, while the Monti trail offers participants gastronomic treats of the Istrian interior.
