Motovun, Croatia is famous throughout certain parts of the world for its film festival that draws visitors from thousands of miles away. But, during the rest of the year, it’s a small hilltop village with a population of just over 500 residents. On a hill with a river and fog surrounding its foundation, you enter an enchanted place where time has stopped and true authenticity seeps from every crevice in the Medieval buildings. Motovun offers visitors small shops, galleries, vineyards and quiet corners to breathe-in the fresh sea air. There’s just no place like it anywhere else in the world.
