“Escape from the Castle” takes place in an attractive fort of Pazin located over a 130-metre-deep chasm. This indescribable image motivated French author Jules Verne to captivate his hero Mathias Sandorf precisely here. Apart from this show, Pazin is also the host of the Jules Verne Days manifestation.
In Jules Verne’s novel, Mathias Sandorf is preparing a conspiracy for the secession of Hungary from Austro-Hungarian Monarchy. Of course, the same as most conspirators, Mathias is exposed, sentenced to death for treason and locked up in the Pazin Castle. However, his adventures do not end there. Sandorf and two conspirators escape to freedom by climbing down the cliff of the Abyss of Pazin into the deep chasm.
The tour of the Ethnographic Museum of Istria and the heritage of the popular Castle is accompanies by an adrenaline dose when professional climbers perform the escape from the Castle, thus introducing the guests into the very centre of the plot of the popular novel. After you find out more about the richness of the literary works left by Jules Verne and experience the “Escape from the Castle”, you will go to concert and a rich Austro-Hungarian style dinner.
Visit Pazin and step into the very heart of Istria. Get to know the culture and the history of the Istrian capital with interesting characters and an intrigue offered by the “Escape from the Castle”.
