Old tractors exhibition
In an area that served as an intersection for communication and roads ever since, besides the Baredine cave as a natural monument, you can also visit an ethno story devoted to agriculture. It shows various items, machines and numerous photographs and documents closely linked to the history of this area and its people.
The story starts with a threshing floor, next to which there is an exhibition on wheat threshing and the invention and development of threshing machines.
The exhibition continues with a permanent exhibition of about fifty historic tractors and various types of engines called Tractor Story. Particularly prominent is an old Fordson tractor from 1923, the first tractor in the village, as well as an old engine with a heated head, which was used to run a mill in Poreč at the beginning of the last century.
In the exclusive area of the Konobon Gallery, visitors can learn more about the story of the Mediterranean trilogy – bread, wine and olive oil, all present in this area from the period of Antiquity, during the medieval period until the present day. Along with these exhibitions, the central part is an area where various other exhibitions are presented along with a wine cellar where guest can savour authentic products of this area.

Zbirka Antun Motika
The truffle is the supreme delicacy that had been enjoyed by the Mesopotamian rulers 4000 years ago, and it is still one of the most prestigious foodstuffs in world gastronomy. This intense flavour royal mushroom was known to the ancient Greeks and the Roman emperors, and it was also served at the French court and among the Austro-Hungarian aristocracy. It is very rare and it grows only in several locations in Europe - in some parts of France and Italy and in Istria, favoured by mild climate, small temperature variations and gray clay soil.
The white and the black truffles have their natural habitat in the Istrian truffle 'Bermuda' triangle between Pazin, Buje and Buzet, especially in the valley of the river Mirna and in the Motovun Forest. They grow underground, and they are searched after by specially trained dogs.
October is the top season of the white truffles, which are also the most expensive and the most valuable truffles. At that time, numerous events are held very weekend to celebrate this indisputable king of mushrooms in Livade, the well-known truffles centre near Motovun. But, even before and after this period, throughout most of the autumn, Istria lives in the rhythm of truffles with the abundance of festivities dedicated to this noble mushroom.
The guests that come from the whole region are presented with the typical truffle dishes: fuži, pljukanci, gnocchi, fritada and various meat combinations. There are also many exhibitions and fairs, with plenty of excellent opportunities to meet the world of this magic, aromatic tuber known for its aphrodisiac features.

As the hot summer ends, it is necessary to prepare your body and mind for the long, cold winter that lies ahead. And the Well Days, during the month of October, provide the perfect way to achieve that.
In October, the wellness centres of the hotels Sol Umag, Sol Garden Istra and Meliá Coral offer special wellness programs including the accommodation in luxury hotels, half-board service and everyday visit to wellness centres, complete with the use of saunas, whirlpools, indoor swimming pools and other facilities.
Wellness Centres in Umag:
• The Fusion Spa at hotel Meliá Coral
• Istrian Relax Village at hotel Sol Umag
• The Body Holiday at hotel Sol Garden Istra
>> Umag Welldays
Lasting an entire month, the Sole Fish Days are not celebrated out in the open with music and many guests. Instead, this event takes place in the many restaurants and wine cellars of Umag, Novigrad, Buje and Brtonigla. Here you will find three-course meals based on sole, served with quality wine and olive oil from the region.
The sole has thus become an inspiration, encouraging cooks to try out new creations and combinations. Chefs reach for the stars and let their imagination run wild, raising the gastronomic experience to new levels - all in the name of this noble fish, characteristic of the north-western part of the Istrian peninsula.

International biennial exhibition
MULTIMERIDIJAN, a biennial project by the HDLU Istria, is an international exhibition of contemporary art, which over the past decade, since its founding in 2002, underwent several transformations, always retaining interest in meeting artists and artistic positions, and openness to different meridians with the aim of involving local artists in international context.
The exhibition presents different artistic positions and practices, and brings together the works of artists of different generations, originating from different cultural contexts. It brings together – starting with notable avantguard works of Antun Motika, Mario Merz and Fabio Mauri from the mid-20th century – collages, photographs, videos, drawings, installations, artists who in their works, through artistic imagination or research, question the idea of search and traveling, the vastness of the Universe, influence and imagery of a starry sky, its unknown vastness, technological achievements of humanity, failed utopias, relationship between man and nature, the need for experiment.
Exhibition NO-ORDUNG, Asteroid 19612, devoted to Herman Potočnik Noordung, is the meeting point of different narratives. Geared toward the future, it turns back to the past, to traveling, research, observation... clarifying different stories, tales or histories through fragments of reality or fiction, iconography of science fiction, and the endeavors and expeditions or locations of (post)socialist utopia.
The exhibition is created as a poetic space, turned towards the experience, focused on the perception of the viewer, and finds historical and cultural context as a starting point of interest in the character and work of two perhaps insufficiently visible or recognized/able protagonists that are more or less successfully inscribed in the cultural memory of Pula - Herman Potočnik Noordung and Antun Motika. (B. Benčić, L.Tadorni)
