Lavender Festival @ Pariži, ISTRIA

25.7.2009. 10:00 - 26.7.2009. 21:00Pazin

Lavender Festival @ Pariži, ISTRIAPariži is a village south of Pazin consisting of five houses only, with about twenty permanent and a few periodic inhabitants, whereby most of the villagers still bear the ancient Paris surname. Three families are occupied with the biological cultivation and the processing of lavender, and precisely that shared passion has made them join together and, in June 2009, made them start setting up a Lavender Festival for the first time, following the example of similar festivals throughout the world. Please be their guests in the time of the year when their village is the most beautiful!
And no, you don’t need to travel beyond Paris, you don’t need to leave for the French Provence to experience the magic of lavender fields. Take a fresh Istrian breath and, in July, do stop for a while in Pariži.
