The Castle of Pazin

The largest and best preserved medieval fortress of Istria (Pazin Town Museum and Ethnographic Museum), once seat of the Austrian part of Istria (Pazin County), situated on a cliff overlooking the Pazinčica River (speleoadventure, nature trail, zip-line). The Castle and the Cave have always been a source of inspiration for many writers (Dante Alighieri, Jules Verne, Vladimir Nazor).


One of the sites with the longest continuity of population in Istria. The radially arranged streets were set in prehistoric times. An impostrant Glagolitic center in the Middle Ages. Various original Glagolitic inscriptions are preserved in the Parish Church of St. Martin. The village is famous for the frescoes painted in 1474, work of Master Vincet from Kastav. The most well known cycle of Istrian frescoes decorate the small cemetery church of St. Mary on "Škriljinah" (on the Plates) 1,5 km north-east of Beram. One of the most fascinating scenes represent the Dance of Death as a great moral warning that all people are equal when facing death and no one can escape it. The village is also known as birthplace of the anit-fascist Vladimir Gortan.


The village was founded by the inhabitants of the nearby medieval castle of Zelengrad which is still visible north of the village. In the remains of the ancient settlement, the Grdoselo fragment was found, one of the most important monuments of the Croatian Glagolitic heritage. Today it is kept in the Parish Church dedicated to the Presentation of Mary in the Temple.
