Istrian cargo inspection

That Svetvincenat is an interesting place is evidenced by the large number of contents that you can use while in this small town. Namely, in terms of content, there is certainly a large number of attractions, among which we can mention the famous Grimani-Morosini Castle.

Namely, it is a famous Venetian construction of that time in Istria, and it is worth mentioning that it is a building with three corners-three towers and rooms for gentlemen and an apartment for the captain. The parish church of the Annunciation of Mary, which was built at the beginning of the 16th century with a renaissance three-faceted façade made of local stone carving, should also be mentioned.

In addition to the large number of cultural and historical traces, it is worth mentioning the manifestations that also give a certain charm to this interesting place. The interesting “Istrian Cargo Festival” should be mentioned here.


This is a really fun event that regularly takes place at the beginning of October. It starts with a throat show first, followed by a load race.

You can also enjoy the performances of numerous folklore societies that will once again remind us of how it used to be. Finally, the announcement of the winner and dancing with the famous band.

If you have the time, try heading to Svetvincenat next year, which will really delight you, and we believe that you will not be immune to laughter when you experience a donkey race. Although some people object to the use of animals, it should be noted that this is not only about promoting the place where the event is held, but also with these really cute animals.

We believe that you will not regret if you decide to relax a bit, and we should not omit that it can also enjoy top quality home-cooked meals and fine drinks. All in all, you get the right package of entertainment that you will retell for a long time, and yet it is fun for the whole family.
