Žminj is a beautiful little place in the heart of Istria that has been the backdrop for a lot of celebrations for many locals and tourists. The magical atmosphere of the medieval town creates a real fairytale location that will beautify your memorable wedding day. Istria offers luxurious but traditional glamor with the finest restaurants and wineries to create an unforgettable wedding.
Warm temperatures throughout the year
Although coastal locations are usually reserved for summer weddings, Žminj offers another specialty. Warm and sunny days here permeate through spring and autumn. Temperatures in the colder periods of the year are pleasant and weddings are active outside the tourist season. Captivating landscapes and amazing views are just a part of this place.
Amazing historical scenery
Žminj was first mentioned in 1178, and it experienced rapid development in the 20th century. It is recognized as an important center with great potential. A lot of history is still seen in city walls and monuments. Kaštel from the 15th century is one of the most gorgeous destinations for wedding photographs. The city walls with one preserved tower, and the south wing that was built into the parish church can create a movie-like scene for your celebration.
Canonical house built in the 16th century can be a classic background with a modern twist. This Canonical house is decorated with the typical Istrian renaissance decorations from ancient periods. It also hides a part of history in its walls – a stone inscription was built stating that the house was renovated in 1658 for a canon and pastor. So much history in a small place.
Amazing gastronomical experience
That Žminj as a wedding destination has found its place under the sun is shown by the fact that there are more than 200 rental facilities in the area and an increasing number of gastronomic establishments.
