DRY WALL

When listening to the tale of the dry wall we can learn a lot about the essence of the hard life of people who have inhabited these areas for centuries. Every stone of the dry wall was touched by the human hand. They perform its function whilst the generations of families change throughout history. Numerous dry walls are a result of centiuries’ old hard work. They are created from placing cut stones, which have been collected when clearing the fields, one over the other, using no binding material. Dry walls can be found outside the villages, defining cultivated land –vrtaca. They also serve as an obstacle or fence for flocks of sheep, and most importantly keep the precious land fenced off.

European Dry Wall and the Museum of the Vampire Jure Grando
There is a dry wall when entering the village of Kringa, which, according to the project, got its title as the European Dry Wall, and it represents the possibility to build dry wall as a part of a tourist pack. This activity is organized so that every builder may build in only one numbered stone at most and later receive a certificate for the participation in building it. The dry wall footpath starts at the other end of the village with a forest footpath leading downhill along the slope of Draga, and later going up towards the village Faturi and returning back to Kringa. The footpath is marked and is 5 kms long.

The Museum of the Vampire Jure Grando
It is an unusual museum dedicated to the legendary Istrian vampire from Kringa. The museum attracts its visitors by its looks and a very originally painted entrance door. You enter through narrow door in a dark labyrinth in which the eerie atmosphere reveals the tale about Jure Grando and his widow Ivana. From the bendy hall you get to the central museum area which reflects the mysterious vampire legend with its costume dolls, carriage and sticks decorated with hawthorne, art paintings and sculptures. In the museum you can find a small gift shop with the typical vampire souvenirs – the work of the inhabitants of the area of Tinjan.

Price includes the visit to the museum, cocktail Jure Grando, dry wall building and the relevant certificate. 5 €
