613 A WALK TO PAZINSKI KROV

The trail starts in front the Central Istria Tourist Board in Pazin which is located about a hundred meters beneath the parish church of St. Nicholas (crkva sv. Nikole). It continues straight through Pazin’s old town, and before it reaches Pazin Castle, the best preserved medieval castle in Istria, the trail turns right and descends gradually along a footpath all the way to the waterfall called Pazinski krov. The waterfall is in its full swing in spring and autumn when, after heavy rainfall, the streambeds are abundant with water. After this point, the trail climbs upstream along the creek up to the ruins of Tomažin’s Mill (Tomažinov Mlin), which was in operation until the end of 1960s, and St. Joseph’s Bridge (Most sv. Jožefa), also known as French Bridge or Napoleon’s Bridge, since it was built during the short Napoleon’ reign over Central Istria. Here, you turn right onto the road and, followed by the gurgle of Pazinčica, return back to the town and the starting point.

The trail is slightly longer than two kilometres, which makes it ideal for short hikes you can afford yourself even in lack of free time. Because of its brevity and exceptional beauty, the trail is attractive even for those people who are not in a great shape.
