The sun is up and not a single cloud in the sky, seems so welcoming for us to start this wonderful tour, our ride for the day will develop mainly in the neighbouring country of Slovenia, where we will visit the Postonja Cave.
The caves were discovered in 1818 and immediately the year after the doors were open to the public, with the visit of Archduke Ferdinand. Originaly lit up by candles and gas lamps it wasn't till in 1884 that the electric lighting was added.
The rails were placed in 1872 and the charriots were pushed by the guides themselves!! End of the century and gas locomotives were added, and with the end of WWII the electric trains were placed.
A beautiful morning awakes us and another day begins in paradise. Two beautiful destinations, the Roman town of Poreč and the Lim Canal (Limski kanal).
Poreč, a 2000 year old town on the most western part of the Istrian Peninsula (the west side of Croatia), originally built around the Harbour, used mainly for fishing boats, now primarily yatchs will sail round the area. It's naturally protected from strong tides by the island of Saint Nicholas. This town is a great place for a quick walk or some sightseeing, like the Euphrasian Basilica or the "Norther Tower", now a resturant.
The Lim Canal is a beautiful opening towards the sea that begins with the Lim valley. The river Pazinčica originally ran through it creating the erosion that would give shape to this fabulous Ria. Now the beautifull green waters are used for Mollusc farming (Mussels and Oysters mainly).
