So, whether you’re into relaxing by the sea, trying tasty food, or discovering the past, Mošćenička Draga has something for everyone!  

Brseč

Discover Brseč, a quaint hilltop town overlooking the sea and the birthplace of Eugen Kumičić. This medieval gem is home to unique attractions like the world’s smallest theater, Theater OZ, and scenic paths leading to beaches and viewpoints – Klančac beach being a local favorite. 

Our adventure began by parking near Istra’s entrance and walking from there. A map at the first intersection guided us left, and we found stairs leading down on the right. Passing through city gates, we spotted Eugen Kumičić’s bust, reaching the main extension with cisterns and an old elementary school. Turning right down a narrow passage, we passed the Oz Theater and reached Eugen Kumičić’s birthplace.

Our journey continued to the olive mill. A path to the right led to the church of St. Juraj, then to the church of the Holy Cross, and finally a pedestrian path to St. Magdalena, offering stunning sea views. For a comprehensive view of Brseč and the cave, turn right at the first intersection, follow the road, and take another right into a dead end. Walk to the end of the street, find a path turning left from the main road, and follow it to the viewpoint and the cave. Keep in mind that the terrain may not be suitable in rainy weather, and make sure you’re prepared for a pleasant stroll!

Mythic Park

Embark on a journey with us to the captivating cross-border Mythic Par. Here the villages of Rodik in Slovenia and Mošćenička Draga in Croatia come together in a mythical embrace. Picture this: lush landscapes, quaint villages, and echoes of ancient tales all around.

As we explored, the very essence of mythical cultural heritage unfolded before our eyes. Themed trails guided us through untouched nature and traditional architecture. They offered a unique glimpse into the oral traditions that once shaped people’s understanding of the world. These stories revealed the mysteries of human origins, community, the creation of our world, and the intricate dance between life and death.

The adventure got even more intriguing at the visitor centers. In Trebišći, we were immersed in the enchanting realm of Slavic mythology. Meanwhile, in Rodik, a rich tapestry unfolds as we explore diverse worldviews – from the mythical and scientific to the artistic. 

But that’s not all – as we traversed this mythical landscape, artistic stone signposts and sculptures emerged like ancient whispers, marking fragments of thematic traditions. It was a journey where nature and mythology intertwined, creating a one-of-a-kind experience.
