Pazin Chasm



The Pazin Chasm is located more than 100 meters below Pazin Castle, one of the most well preserved medieval forts in Istria. The largest Istrian underground river, the Pazinčica, disappears into the pit, and experts agree that this is one of the most fascinating examples of karst evolution in the region. The picturesque landscapes which have been formed by the activity of natural forces in this specific type of terrain, at the spot where Istrian grey and red soil meet, have been a source of inspiration for numerous authors, the most famous among which was Jules Verne and his novel Mathias Sandorf. For more information on this interesting hero, as well as on the history of Pazin and its Castle, visit the interactive show Escape from Kaštel (Istra Inspirit). Due to its exceptional beauty and its unique natural features, the Pazinčica canyon and ravine are protected natural landscapes. Visit Pazin and find out why the Pazin Abyss is considered to be one of the most important sights of Green Istria.
