Art fans visiting Istria this month should stop at Grožnjan, where a majestic open air exhibition is about to take place.
The exhibition, the largest of its kind in the country, runs for one colourful day on August 14. It sees Grisia steet - in the heart of the cobbled Istrian town - filled with paint and patterns. Sculptures and paintings by a range of local and international artists will be on display, with professionals, amateurs, and students submitting their work.
Grožnjan was declared the Town of Arts in the 1960s, when a network of artists descended on local war-scarred, abandoned houses. They set up camp and opened a string of galleries - now there are around 20 in the small hilltop town.
