At the string of pearls of the Istrian county, one of the brighter places is Plomin, a town that rises 80 meters above sea level on a hill with a dreamlike sight of the Kvarner Bay. Plomin is much more than a bunch of rocky alleys circling around the church in the heart of the place. This is the place where Istria was born in ancient Flanona, a Roman fort, and still holds numerous cultural and historical treasures. It is less known that the oldest Glagolitic recording is here, carved in stone, older than the Baška Tablet on the island of Krk. The locals attributed the inscription incorrectly to St. Juraj and named a church by his name built on Roman foundations in the 11th century. But the inscription has been raised to the glory of the Roman deity Silvanus. He is the patron of the woods, and he resides still in the lush natural beauty of Plomin and the marvelous scenes of its surroundings. Placed at the margins of human interventions in the landscape, the Plomin Bell Ring can be found here, an endemic plant species that enchants travelers with its purple bloom in May and June, and can only be found here and on the southeast slopes of Učka mountain and Sisola hill. Plomin has only something more than100 people, but accommodation in Plomin is easy to find in private apartments and holiday homes. The rock on which it is erected is disappearing vertically into the blue of the Kvarner, with the sandy coves and pearl rocks beneath that invite you to enjoy the long hot summer days here.
