Motovun, Croatia

Motovun, Croatia: Destination #2

On our way from the capital Zagreb, we headed west towards the Istrian Peninsula and made a pit stop in Motovun, Croatia.

We found the best parking near the cemetery and hiked the rest of the way to the top via this very steep one way cobblestone road.

Motovun is knows for their truffles, so we headed straight for all the “black diamonds of Istria” at Restorant Hotel Kaštel and it was AH-MAZINGLY delicious.

Afterwards, we definitely had to walk off the pasta, so we went on a hike around the city walls to take in all the views 😍

I’m glad we made the small detour and stopped to enjoy this cute hilltop town of less than 1,000 people!

*Fun fact: Mario Andretti and his twin brother were born in Motovun, Croatia! 🇭🇷
