Žminj is the traditional host of one of the most popular folk festivities in Istria, the Bartulja (at the end of August), dedicated to St. Bartholomew, patron of Žminj (in the church of St. Bartholomew). Other traditional events are the Chakavian Assembly, a contest of young poets and reciters of poetry in the Chakavian dialect and the Harmonica Wedding, a competition in accordion-playing.
The town has moreto offer than expected
Since Zminj is located in the center of Istria you can reach basically every interesting place by car (which is recommended to have) within max. 25-35 min. And this small town has more to offer than we expected....the old stone town centre, a beautiful church, old Istrian houses and so on. We had great time in Casa Matiki, loved the peace, freshness and nature.
