Traktor Story

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 our village, as well as an old engine with a heated head, which was used to run a mill in Porec at the beginning of the last century. In the exclusive area of the Konobon Gallery you can learn more about the story of the Mediterranean trilogy - bread, wine and olive oil, all present in this are from the period of Antiquity, the medieval period until the present moment. Along with these Exhibitions, the central part is an area, where various other Exhibitions are presented and the wine cellar where guest can savour authentic products of this area.

If you are interested in the history of farming, old machinery, or just want to see some tractors, this is the place for you. Two amusing tractors are made by Porsche and Ferrari.
Not worth a detour, but if you are visiting the caves, and the weather is nice, it's a relaxing way to spend 45 minutes.

This is our 4th time at the Aqua Park, been going to this park every summer since it opened.
A great day with the kids , the slides are excellent , our boys did them all. Our family favorite is the "Crazy Hills". The kids always want to beat us to the bottom !
There plenty of space to have lunch , we bring our own sandwiches and drinks. However we always buy drinks there as well.
Do no miss the music band that goes into the wave pool .. excellent time!
We always go there on the Saturday's as there seems to be less crowd on that day.

Porec Old Town

Reviewed By Colin M - Glasgow, United Kingdom

Really enjoyed a quiet week here, it was great just wandering around the coast, harbours, shops, and endless choice of restaurants. All good, nobody hassling you, seafood fresh from the boats. Plenty of trips on offer if that's your thing, and the new town is nearby if you need to buy anything other than souvenirs.

Next to the cave are a free parking lot (for cars and buses), a reception, a coffee-bar/buffet, speleo-gallery, souvenir shops, children play ground, and area with domesticated animals and a pick-nick area

Reviewed By empathology - Rotterdam, The Netherlands

A beautiful set of caves with stalac-tites/mites galore.
Croatia (we were told) is full of caves carved from the limestone by water, and this one was a real gem. A short 45-ish minute tour from a friendly, knowledgeable and fun guide (English). Well-lit, easy to walk (though 270 steps back to the top) the only issue is waiting for other groups to pass your group - though this has the advantage of allowing you to linger for a few minutes rather than rushing around.
It's not far from the coastal resort of Porec in the North, so pop by and spend an hour - you won't be disappointed!
