We stopped here for a visit during our trip around Istra, and glad we did. There is lots to see and access to different parts of the castle is great, it has a very "rustic" feel which is a nice change. Make sure to lean...More

The medieval castle is well maintained and within it there is an interesting ethnological museum. We have included this attraction our visit to Porec which is not far away. The castle is in a gorge and the town of Pazin is very quiet

We visited in the off season so it may be different and crowded in summer. On a sunny but cool afternoon there were less than 10 people there, which is very lucky. It was dry but a little slippery on the gravel. You need walking...More

While in Motovun decided to return 'home' to Mugeba by visiting Pazin just to see this impressive chasm. Although I can imagine nothing beats 'flying over it' (ropes), watching the chasm from near the castle is quite breathtaking as well. Worth making the extra stop!

Far away from the main tourist attractions at the Istrian peninsula lies the city of Pazin. At the top of a small hill lies this beautiful medieval castle. Strange detail: there's no moat, the castle is almost completely surrounded by public roads and is partly...More

An incredible ancient building..a castle which has been turned into a museum. Age has been mentioned as 983 but most likely for 3000 years people have lived in parts of it and in the surrounding area. Tons of stairs - lots of climbing, but amazing...More

Worth a detour for a look, but nothing spectacular. Need to walk through town - stop at Bunker cafe for a drink, look out for the marking on the road!

The best view of the chasm is while flying across it. Seriously, check out the Zip line. The staff is excellent and the experience exhilarating. The developer is a civil engineer and he and his wife are experienced mountain rescue guides. They patiently explained how...More

I was underwhelmed by the chasm and didn't even bother walking down. Pazin is a large town so finding parking and the chasm can take some effort. We were passing through the area so made a stop; I'm glad we did not make a special...More

There is a castle and a chasm, but the chasm isn't that amazing. The castle is decent but with the limited time you have in Istria I would suggest you spent it elsewhere. Town is slightly confusing to navigate and a little out of the...More
