  • The steeple of St. Blaise is the largest in Istria, so he points from afar to Vodnjan. The church you can enter for free, while it is possible for the visit to the mummies 50 Kuna (~ €7) and for a combination ticket for Mummies and Museum 75 Kuna (~ € 10) must pay. We opted for the Combi-ticket. In the Museum, panels are offered in Croatian and Italian. Because we not fluent in both languages, we have received a handout with German text at the box office, which has guided us through the Museum and explained the exhibited relics. The mummies were the completion of the tour. The Director gave us a few introductory words to each Mummy and us then with a German-speaking audio explanation (automatically expire) left alone. The mummies are very impressive, although also something creepy. Overall, the Church in Vodnjan is home to approximately 320 relics.

  • We looked at the mummies only and not the Museum. At the beginning there were a few nice words and explanations of the young lady from the cashier. Then, we were alone together with the mummies. It was somewhat scary. At the same time, I realized how important these mummies or relics were used for the people. I've never seen so much relics of many saints

  • Quite a unique experience, on the pricey side, though, for 50 kn...
  • Holy bodies
  • Come see the mummies of saints (small entrance fee). Also see relics from hundreds of other saints. Church's 65-meter high bell tower is tallest in Istria.
  • Amazing mummy's , nice to see
  • Because it is not correct to simoniac trade in Church as it does here is scandalous the curia of Pola allows this grunge that sacristan who has an arrogant attitude or saccharine has no qualifying and then on order above this trade out of bones from dead is not the place nor the way to preserve and show the human remains they venerate it's morbid and distorted but that idea from the dignity of the body as well? Do something to remedy this mess goes away the dignity and good name of the beautiful city of Vodnjan the Mayor realizes that this set is not religious tourism but something else? thanks but I had a very bad impression. Think about it, if you will, thanks. Imagine if Pope Francis I knew who would speak rightly of the worldliness of the Church and some of his ministers, but the Bishop allows this disgrace? He also becomes liable if it doesn't do anything; you put on the side of Simony doesn't seem so right pecunia non olet and it shows how I hope put an end to this Simony: ecclesia semper reformanda EST we still to situations that have given rise to the reform of Martin Luther 500 years have passed and the story is a teacher of life but a very little schoolmistress played past mistakes must be but several in church use her for their power prestige money must serve Jesus ' washing the feet as ambition if no is forget it. .
