One of most charming old villages in Istria
Jan 2020
We visited this charming little village in winter (January) when most of the shops and restaurants were closed. But still it was worth walking around its streets as this is one of the most charming old villages ever. You can feel its soul in their cobbled narrow streets and enjoy a breathtaking view all the way to the adriatic sea (especially fascinating just before sunset).

It is very close to Motovun, Hum and other cute Istrian Vilages, so you visit them all in one day.

Ute little village

Cute little artisan village with many little shops selling both Croatian artefacts & lovely original art work. We talked to some artists selling their wares in their little shops & bought 2 original pieces.

A hidden gem in plain view
Oct 2019
I am hesitant about praising this place because it just means that more people will go there, which will spoil it. But I have to. It is one of the most magical places I have ever been: an unspoiled (if renovated) hill town, with narrow winding lanes, courtyards, and squares and great views. Now if only I could live there ...

We enjoyed visiting this gem of a hilltown while driving around inland Istria. We arrived around mid-day and it was already quite busy, managed to secure a parking spot just outside the walls (remember to pickup a parking ticket for 8kn from the automated mahine, and dispaly on your dashboard). We popped into a number of of little shops, art and craft studios etc. while wandering around the narrow cobblestoned lanes of Grozjnan. Very charming.

Amazing Grožnjan !
Sep 2019 • Couples
This was my first time to visit this scenic and amazing town of Grožnjan. And what a lovely surprise, a day of Ex Tempore ! Hundreds of artists, painters, creative persons all around and through every little charmy streets, it was incredible and wonderful. Grožnjan is often called the most artistic place in whole Istria, and you know what, it's a true. Local music everywhere, you can feel festivity and you feel very special...
Wines, truffles, local products, even mandarines from Neretva, honey...
Scenic town in a scenic surround !

Stunning old village
Oct 2018
We visited this place on our drive through Istria and were stunned with what we found once we got out of our car and walked through this beautiful, peaceful artist town. The buildings are ancient, the views are stunning, the energy and the feel of space are indescribable. An absolute must-visit when in Croatia. :)

THE cuttest hilltop village
Aug 2019
Motovun is nice, Groznjan is really charming and quieter. We loved it, walking around the small old streets. It feels less touristy too. Worth a visit! An hour is enough to discover this cute hilltop village.

Fabulous but uneven paving stone could be a problem for some.
Sep 2019 • Couples
We loved our trip to this beautiful little gem full of fabulous arts and crafts. There are lots of unique gorgeous little shops. We also found a gorgeous wine and truffle shop where the lady was incredibly friendly and helpful. This village is not very disabled or elderly friendly as the old paving blocks are incredibly uneven and difficult to walk on throughout the village. Wear comfortable flat shoes. We parked on the road and if you drive to the very top there are two disabled spots.

Beautiful little village
Aug 2019
Absolutely beautiful hilltop village located in the coutry side of Istria. Only takes a few minutes to walk the entire village but so worth the trip. Cute little art galleries and a music school where we could hear the children having their violin lessons.
