Labin

The town of Labin is located in eastern Istria, only three kilometres away from the sea. Residents of this medieval town are proud of its history and culture, which was also recognised by numerous artists, who found a creative inspiration in Labin and opened galleries and ateliers.

The territory surrounding Labin in Croatia was populated by Illyrians almost 1000 years before Christ, and the remainders of even earlier civilisations from the Bronze Age can be found near the town, on site Kunci. Labin later became an important part of the Roman province of Illyricum, and after the breakup of the Roman Empire, the town was ruled by Venetia and the Habsburgs the longest. They left many monuments and sights. An especially interesting episode in Labin’s history happened in 1923, when the town was an important mining centre in the constitution of the Kingdom of Italy. Dissatisfied with their position, miners organised a mutiny and founded the Labin Republic. More details about this crucial event in the town’s history can be found out through the Miner’s Republic manifestation, which is held every year in order to commemorate the miners and their struggle. Labin wins over with its rich cultural and historical heritage and even the most fastidious tourists can find a souvenir in one of the art galleries while walking on its picturesque streets.
