Fort Possert

You can check out the full extended video in 4K on my YouTube channel: https://youtu.be/Ed6K8czuymo

Fort Possert (Posrt, Italian: Possert), also known as Šabec (Schabez) and St. Martin, is a ruined fortress near the road between Paz and Šušnjevica, in municipality of Cerovlje, in Istria, Croatia. The ruins of the castle depending on the name are dating back to the 11th century (St. Martin), or 16th century (Šabec), while by archeological evidence to the second half of the 14th century. The castle was vastly devastated in the Uskok War (1615–17). Between 2009 and 2014 the castle was restored. Nearby the castle there is also a small Church of St. Martin from 1367.

Fort Possert, near Paz, is one of the few feudal forts in Istria featuring a preserved Gothic keep. The systematic archaeological research and conservation interventions initiated by the Croatian Conservation Institute in 2007 have provided a significant contribution to knowledge of mediaeval residential architecture in this region. The archaeological exploration, and particularly the discovered inventory originating from the period between the 14th and the early 17th c., have generated new assumptions concerning the history of the fort.

The fort consists of a defence tower, with a ground plan in the shape of an irregular rectangle, located in the north-east corner of the edifice, and a partially preserved keep, leaning against the southern side of the defence tower.

Walterstein family fort in Paz

On the smaller plateau located on the eastern slopes of the hill that descends from the tops of Straževice and Tupalice, toward the Boljunšćica valley, a small settlement of Paz has been established.

On the plateau located above the settlement, there are remains of a medieval and modern fortress.

In historical sources, the feudal estate dates back to the end of the 13th century, when families De Pas, Walderstein, Barbo and finally Auersperg are governed by it. Today, only scarce construction remains of the fort can be recognized.

In the great reconstruction during the final development phase, the fort was turned into a complex of residential character, which also met the economic and defense functions of the owners.

Castle Belaj, Paz and old Kožljak are sold in 1668 by the Barbo family to Johann Weichard Auesperg. Auespergs are the last feudalists who, during the 17th and 18th centuries, rule a good part of the interior of Istria from their seat in Belaj.

The Castle in Kršan - Beautiful example od cultural and historical heritage in Istria.
You can check this video in 4K on YouTube channel: https://youtu.be/hfg18oNpVaI
The elevation near a large field is the site of Kršan's tower, the remnant of the medieval castle. A little town, today's Kršan, developed around the tower as the centre of the municipality bearing the same name. It was mentioned for the first time in 1274 as Castrum Carsach, the tower destroyed by the army of the Count of Gorica Albert II. At that time, the Patriarch of Aquileia ruled Kršan. At the beginning of the 14th century, Henry of Pazin-Pisino became the owner of one half of Kršan. He was the descendant of the noble family Kerstlein from Pazin-Pisino after which the castle and the little town of Kršan were named. The tip of the arrow on Henry's coat of arms is still used as the coat of arms of the Municipality of Kršan.
In the 19th century, a transcript of Istarski razvod (The Istrian Book of Boundaries) was found in Kršan. It was made by the priest from Barban Jakov Križanić. This important historic and legal document was published in 1852 by Ivan Kukuljević Sakcinski, and it was transcribed in Latin script and prepared for print by Dr. Ante Starčević, later a prominent Croatian politician.
Only a four-sided tower has been preserved of the old castle. Later on, defensive and residential buildings were erected around the tower.

Monkodonja

Please check out the full extended 4K video clip on my YouTube channel: https://youtu.be/IGR60NVlVFQ

Monkodonja is a hill fort occupied about 1800–1200 BC during the Bronze Age, located near the city of Rovinj in the Croatian region of Istria.

It is located on a hillside surrounded by a spatial area, extending in length from 2.5 km to the sea, and on a cliff at 81 m above sea level, a form of irregular ellipse stretching east-west, 160 m × 250 m. The settlement was surrounded with three concentric walls and two entrances that have explored so far (so called Western and Northern). Not far from the road to the north door there is a pit deep 50 m. The defensive wall surrounding the settlement was about 1 km long, about 3 m wide and at least 3 m tall. It was built by laying stone in the drywall technique.

Approximately 1,000 people lived in the well-organized settlement: on the highest part was the acropolis, below it the upper town and still lower the lower town. The Acropolis, where the higher layer of communities lived, had a nearly rectilinear space. In other parts of the settlement there was a crafts area.

The Monkodonja was an important point in the communications of the northern Adriatic with Central Europe and the Aegean.

It was discovered in 1953. by B. Baćić and B. Marušić. The first research was carried out in 1953-1955. Since 1997, contemporary multidisciplinary international research has been conducted (Archaeological Museum in Pula, Rovinj's Provincial Museum, Freie Universität Berlin).

Pićan

Pićan was definitely settled in early prehistoric times. The oldest parts of the fortified hilltop town of the tribe of Histri were located on the Calvary Hill, north of the modern town. After that the town was probably settled by the Celtic tribe of the Secusa. In Roman times, probably on the same strategically important location, there was a military stronghold and the settlement Petina.

Some authors linked the town of Pićan to the name Pucinium, mentioned by Pliny and Ptolemy as the name of a fortification in central Istria, famous for its excellent wine even in the Roman Court. Livia, wife of the Emperor Augustus, believed that her longevity was attributed to the fact that she would drink only this wine.

At the time of the Byzantine rule Pićan was the administrative centre of central Istria.

In the Middle Ages, not only the ecclesiastical, but also the secular rule in Pićan was in the hands of the Patriarchs of Aquileia. Following that period, Pićan was included to the Pazin hold administered by Majnard Črnogradski (Meinhard von Schwarzenburg).

The Pula Arena is the name of the amphitheatre located in Pula, Croatia. The Arena is the only remaining Roman amphitheatre to have four side towers and with all three Roman architectural orders entirely preserved. It is among the six largest surviving Roman arenas in the World. We would recommend everyone to go check it out as it is only 500 meters from #meating 😉🍴

Gračišće

Gračišće is a town of a very distinctive architecture and exciting history. It is situated on a bluff above Čepičko polje (a field called Čepičko), a former lake, where there is a wonderful panoramic view over the surrounding hills, Učka, Julian Alps and the Dolomites. It is located about 8 kilometers east of Pazin, on the road Pazin-Kršan-Vozilići. Gračišće is surrounded by lush greenery and the rich architectural and natural heritage.

A kilometer away from the town, there is a hill called Perunčevac, which was named after the supreme god of ancient Slavs, Perun.

It is known that people resided in Gračišće before the golden age of the Roman Empire. 2000 years ago ancient Gauls gave the name of Gallignana while the Slavs, after their immigration to Istria in the 6th and 7th century, called it Gračišće. Its name is mentioned for the first time in written documents in 1199. The town was once surrounded by defensive walls of which only the east tower remained (from the fifteenth century). Traditional wine festival, a festival of central Istrian vineyards is a must to attend for all wine lovers.

It is located about 8 kilometers east of Pazin, on the road Pazin-Kršan-Vozilići. Gračišće is surrounded by lush greenery and the rich architectural and natural heritage. A kilometer away from the town, there is a hill called Perunčevac, which was named after the supreme god of ancient Slavs, Perun. It is known that people resided in Gračišće before the golden age of the Roman Empire. 2000 years ago ancient Gauls gave the name of Gallignana while the Slavs, after their immigration to Istria in the 6th and 7th century, called it Gračišće. Its name is mentioned for the first time in written documents in 1199. The town was once surrounded by defensive walls of which only the east tower remained (from the fifteenth century). Traditional wine festival, a festival of central Istrian vineyards is a must to attend for all wine lovers.

Plomin

Plomin, ancient Flanona, is a place of great stories and beautiful landscape. This apparently sleepy town has a rich thousand-year-old history. The fortified town is situated above a blue-green gulf and overlooks Kvarner. Founded back in prehistoric times, when the residents vigilantly observed and celebrated the forces of Nature, it has still preserved a close connection with the rhythm of Nature.

The history of Plomin dates far back into the past. Life existed here in the 2nd century BC when a village was built on this site. Here lived the old Liburni, ancient navigators and pirates. The arrival of the Romans brought a time of battles and  a struggle for supremacy. The first written trace of Old Plomin dates back to 100 years BC and was written by Artemidor from Ephesus. During the Roman Empire, Plomin became a municipality.

FIUME - CORSO. Città già ai tempi degli Asburgo facente parte del Regno d’Ungheria, e quindi con una identità culturale meno mitteleuropea rispetto all’Istria ma contesa da sempre tra Adriatico e Balcani. Una frontiera geografica e culturale che ancora oggi si riesce, a tratti, a percepire. La pulizia etnica perpetrata da Tito dell’elemento naturale italiano però ha favorito sul territorio in misura preponderante l’imposizione della identità e del carattere salvo-balcanico, fatto da coloni bosniaci e serbi. Oggi ha perso quasi del tutto la sua originaria identità, vittima di un bombardamento culturale pesante e irreversibile. Si è ricostruita su basi nuove, sembra quasi una tipica città dell’entroterra balcanico, sull’Adriatico. #visitcroatia #ig_croatia #croatiafulloflife #hrvatska #istra #istria  #sloveniancoast #visitpiran #visitistria #igersistria #igersslovenia #feelslovenia #enjoypiranportoroz #igistria #igerspiran #igpiran #igslovenia #igersslovenia #igersistria #loveslovenia #todoinslovenia #ig_istria #igersistria #ig_istria #extraistra  #bestofthebalkans #extraistra #rijeka #fiume #visitrijeka #rijekacity #timeoutcroatia #enjoy_adriatic #croatia_lovers #castles_of_slovenia
