Croatia is passing a fast commercialized period. Places like Motovun not far from Groznjan that were lovely turned to be tourist catchers and I feel alienated. Groznjan is still a gem, lovely small street, houses and magnificent view - Go there and enjoy. In summer...More

Well worth a visit. Such a beautiful view, great galleries and cobblestone streets. Has a few restaurant choices and accomodation available. A beautiful Istrian village. Take your time and explore.

Lovely wee village. Were told it was even nicer than Motovun and weren't disappointed. Thunderstorm cut short our visit so will definitely be back.

Visited this little hilltop town directly after seeing Motovun, and have to say we waaaay preferred it! So quaint, but with plenty to explore - we happily spent a few hours and just soaked up the atmosphere (as well as a coffee or three!). Go...More

Groznjan went through a change in the last years: unfortunately there are not as many shops and artist selling their products as couple years ago. Some good ones are still there selling their beautiful, handmade jewellery and porcelain. There are however more shops selling truffle...More

Groznjan is a quaint and ancient village. We greatly enjoyed strolling around, taking numerous great pictures, and talking with the shop-keepers and artists who were around, even though the tourist season had not yet begun. I can only imagine how the beauty would just multiply...More

This is a great hill town to visit and was an easy drive from Rovijn. It is an old town that is easy to explore, admire the architecture, view artists' shops, learn about truffles and just relax.

If it’s a cloudy day and you can’t go to the beach visit Groznjan. It’s a cute, quiet, little Istrian village on the hill easy to find. There is a free parking space hundred meters away from the centre. At the time of our visit...More

Hiya! DEFINITELY Groznjan if you have mobility issues! There is a parking area close by, and as voler mentions, relatively flat in the village area itself. Motovun requires you to park at the bottom of a very steep hill, so... More

We ate at Restaurant Rondo in Buje before visiting Groznjan. We can thoroughly recommend Rondo for great pizza and the Istrian meat and cheese starter platter
