Rijeka - Labin - Rabac - Rijeka
Travel through time and go back to 1921, 150 meters below ground, under 20 million tons of stone, where the light of day and time no longer exist. There is only darkness... and the REVOLUTION!
Rijeka - Jelačić Square at 8.30 a.m.
Opatija - Slatina Bus Station at 9 a.m.
By the Istrian coastal road, we will be driving towards the town called Labin, for a long time was known as the centre of Croatia's largest coal mining district. Nowadays closed mines are the reminder of the past and now, as a part of Istra Inspirit project, you can visit one of them. We will get down in a labyrinth, 150 m below the ground level. There you will have the opportunity to participate in a miner's working day and to bear witness to a difficult life and the moving story of human strength and pride. This is the top experience fulfilled with surprises and emotions.
After the end of the event (around 2 p.m.) from the starting position in Labin, we will be heading to a nearby town Rabac, situated in a quiet cove. Rabac is nowadays famous summer resort, know by the beautiful beaches. You will have free time for swimming and walking.
Return: Rabac at 7 a.m. Expected arrival is around 8.30 p.m.
