In rural areas of Slovenian Istria, ten minutes from the Centre of Koper, on the very edge of the Karst, an interesting village of Črni Kal is situated, with world-renowned climbing areas. Just a step out of the hustle and bustle of the city, with the most beautiful vantage points of the Slovene Istria and the Gulf of Trieste.
Way back in 1895 the HIŠA ROBIDA was the largest facility on the Ćetnar (Katinara), as we locals call it – the bottom of Črni Kal. It was an important point on the way from the coast to the country’s inland. Even then, the house consisted of the village pub, the grocery store, and a post office. After the war the restaurant was best known for its excellent sausages, prosciutto and delicious homemade cuisine, led by our grandparents Olga and Slavko Žerjul.
For many years a major part of the house was empty and deserted until there were some suggestions from Slavko’s grandson Žiga. After that, Slavko’s graddaughter Tina transferred some ideas to paper. Shortly afterwards the efforts were fruitful because of the harmony of the family Vatovec and grandma Olga. The Istrian stone house was completely renovated in July 2018 into a hostel or
GUEST HOUSE HIŠA ROBIDA where we want to offer our guests a higher level of quality of service.
Why ROBIDA (BlackBerry)?
Blackberry shrubs advantageously thrive on Karst’s edge and bring us tasty fruits at the same time.
Likewise, we want to welcome every guest, in the pleasant ambience of the House ROBIDA.
