It’s an amazing place to visit and if you like small, odl, stone-made towns, you will love this one.After Hum you will head to your next destination of the day – Roč. The medieval town sits upon a 334 meter high mountain in the middle of the fertile, green landscapes of central Istria and has only 170 inhabitants. The town owes its special charm to the fascinating medieval architecture that has dominated the town for centuries in its virtually unchanged form. After a wlak through Roč you will head to the tavern where you will have an amazing traditional Istrian lunch. When you finish your meal you will head to Buzet which is situated in the very north of Istria near the border with Slovenia. Its historic core, dating from the Middle Ages lies on a hilltop above a fertile valley of the longest Istrian river – the Mirna. You will tak ea walk through the old town and after that visit the most famous liquor producer in Istria where you will have a tasting of their products.
