Zminj (Central Istria)

If all the roads in Europe lead to Rome, then all the roads in Istria lead to Žminj, the centre of Istria and the old intersection. On the sole cross-roads below the town there is Calvary from the 1720. The exit roads from the town lead in every direction, creating a so called spider web that connects the 103 villages near Žminj.
