We found out about this through geocaching and were very pleased that we made the short detour to see this. It is a very interesting location - about 3,000 to 4,000 years old. It is great to walk around and there are some informative information...More

Hired cycles from Hotel Lone for the day (£10 for 24 hours....bargain!), and cycled along the route 203 which took us close to the fort. Uphill for around 1km off the main road then a few hundred yards along a decent path, and you are...More

Prepare to hike because the site itself is located about 1/2 mile from the car park and covers an extensive area. The day of this visit, there was no entrance fee. The site, named after a local fruit from which marmelade is made, is well-labeled...More

This place has to be seen to be believed. The amount of masonry still standing after 3500-4000 years is amazing. The views from the top are the best I've seen in all Istria, a combination of the stunning sea view and the Brijuni islands and...More

Excellent site with information boards and super views but not signposted off roads so you have to either map read or ask a local for directions, easily accessible via mountain bikes

Really nice place to sea, check points on every few miles, not so accessable if you don't have car. Untouched nature. :)

No it's free. Go to Kokuletovica village, it is signposted from there. You can park at the sign that says it's 1km away and walk up, drive just under half way to the sign that says it's 600m away or drive the whole way up... More
