    On a day of clouds we decided to walk to Vodnjan, and out of curiosity we walked into this which seemed a little store on the corner of the main square. The surprise was great: it was not a little but a treasure chest full of surprises. A young archaeologist staff welcomed us in this House that was brought back to life to witness local culture over the centuries. The large oven found beyond the wall, the boiler to make "lye" ashes to do laundry, cellar with barrels, the kitchen and the room with the furnishings and even the painting made with the patterns of past roller. But not only this: pictures of women of Vodnjan dignano cycling champion in 1922 and won a stage of the tour of Italy right in Vodnjan. Is a European project that has enhanced the local culture through the immense passion of young scholars who put heart and brain in their work. Well done and congratulations to them and who did this project.

    Stumbled by chance on this Museum, located in an old house Istria, at the centre of the village. The visit is free and very informative. Our guide (English speaking, but another speaks french) we explained the lifestyle and history of Istria. The Ecomuseum sells also a few produce from their farm. Enthusiasts, and an initiative to support

    Wonderful hospitality and fantastic Museum: view a typical Istrian House of the twentieth century, refurnished with only objects found and donated by the people of the country. The visit is free, we were accompanied by a very friendly Italian guy who explained everything in detail. At the end of the visit are always offered various kinds of rakija (brandy) and other products of their playground products that you can then purchase if you wish.

    Is a very special Museum is a place that reflects the ancient Istrian setting: dining room, kitchen, bathroom (room still in preparation), old tools of the past. The whole has been provided by the citizens of Vodnjan. Everything has a nametag that indicates their origin. Interesting to watch!

    The place is a beautiful blast from the past. The volunteers are passionate and helpful in making you visit a rock House. You can also buy great souvenirs.
