    4th urban orienteering race


    4th urban orienteering race

    Motovun Tourist Board and Sport- recreational club Alba have organized the race which is suitable for families with children. It is a team-orientation race in which one of the members needs to be younger than 14 years of age.

    The expected duration of the race is approximately an hour and the goal of the team is to find as many as possible hidden control points where it's necessary to perforate the ticket which they have received at the start. The control points are situated in the old town core and its surrounding area. The race is suitable for all age groups.

    The goal of the race is not only to walk, but also to test your agility, speed, orientation and to entertain yourself. Teams need to register under the name which theme needs to be "Motovun" therefore last year's race has produced many interesting names.

    Further information regarding the race will be published on www.tz-motovun.hr

    24. International meeting of diatonic accordion players (Triestina)

    The sound of the popular 'trieština', a small accordion with buttons, starts to spread from every corner of the city – from taverns, family houses, streets - and whole Roč becomes on these days an open-air stage with a large fair where the most peculiar stands are those selling and exhibiting Istrian souvenirs and musical instruments. In this way people have the opportunity to buy and to play trieštinas or simply, just to listen to their sound... On this occasion, different musical workshops, lectures and presentations about the peculiarity of Istrian national instruments as well as scientific meetings about the preservation of the traditional music are also organised. Every year this small village with just about two hundred inhabitants becomes a unique world centre of this accordion called trieština.

    Meeting of harmonica players


    Meeting of harmonica players

    Players of the 'organić', 'organeto', 'organ' or simply - harmonica - traditionally meet in Gračišće at the annual gathering, whose founder was Renato Pernić, the renowned Istrian scholar of traditional music. Apart from numerous soloists, musicians are also accompanied by traditional instruments such as double bass, diatonic accordion and 'bombardina'. Numerous young musicians and the school of harmonica in Gračišće prove that this event is much more than just preserving something that is forgotten and belongs to the past. To make this event as interesting and colorful as possible, various cultural clubs from Istria participate in the program with traditional Istrian dances and 'kanti' (songs).

    Giants festival


    Giants festival

    Veli Jože (Big Joe) - Istria’s Giant

    Do you believe the world of fairy tales and giants doesn't exist and that it's just fantasy for little children? Visit Motovun and you will step into a wondrous dimension where giants do rule, with Veli Jože, the best known among them, in the lead.

    The Veli Jože Festival in Motovun is dedicated not only to these Istrian giants but also to all other fantasy creatures that are the result of wild imagination.  Today fantasy literature is exceptionally popular, from Harry Potter to the Twilight Saga, and it all started with Tolkien's Lord of the Rings. But Istria is not far behind in this genre. On the contrary, the well-known Croatian writer Vladimir Nazor told his story about Veli Jože back in 1908.

    The Veli Jože Festival brings to Motovun the screening of fantasy films, so this is a unique opportunity to watch movies about giants, both old and new, as well as documentaries and films for children. With its well-confirmed film tradition Motovun offers special 3D effects and confrontations of giants on the big screen.

    The festival is a real family event, where everyone can find something they like.  The streets of Motovun will be teeming with entertainers and musicians. Youngsters will be able to take part in creative workshops and in performances, while grown-ups can enjoy theatrical performances in the late hours of the night. The Old Crafts and Trades Fair, as well as eating establishments, will be offering XXL-sized products, giving visitors a chance to try giant-sized cheese, mortadella, pizza or numerous other gigantic morsels.
