Raguz family members visited the hotel “Letan” in Peroj, close to Pula, in November 2012, and again in 2013. Thanks to the very friendly staff, and well equipped hotel, we decided to stay one weekend in November, every year, in this hotel. We had a great gathering of family and friends, and enjoyed excellent buffet meals with lots of good food and drinks.
During this weekend, Raguz family members planted a symbolic “Raguz olive tree" in "The Park of Kažuns", in Vodnjan, a small picturesque old town close to Pula, which also has an exceptional collection of sacral arts and relics in the Church of St. Blasius (Blaise). Kažuns (circular stone huts) are traditional Istrian houses using a special building method. "The Park of Kažuns" is unique in the world, and it was built in the spring of 2013, in the name of all farmers and residents of the Istrian region, in an area which is European designated as protected.
Great friends of the Raguz family, brothers Lorenzo and Livio Belci, from Vodnjan, who are famous producers of olive oil, and winners of numerous international and local awards, gave us a great gift - an olive tree which is 200 years old, from the traditional olive tree variety called Rosinjola. The old olive tree was replanted on this occasion for the purpose of regeneration of centennial trees and the protection and preservation of autochthonous olive tree varieties.
The “Raguz olive tree” was planted in the name of all our relatives who have migrated from Herzegovina to Istria, and for whom the town of Vodnjan is "a front door" for life in the Istrian region.
Hotel Letan also has its own olive trees, and we sampled their own wonderfully unique olive oil. Thanks to the Letan hotel staff, especially to Mrs. Maja and Mr. Ante. See you again in 2014!
