Stjepan Hauzer hiking trail near Marčana is, many say, the most beautiful promenade on the entire Istrian peninsula. And Stjepan Hauzer is a thirty-something year old musician, a popular cellist, a native of Pula, who lives right here, at least when he is not traveling from one world stage to another. He lives in Rakalj, a picturesque town near Marčana. If you have rented accommodation in Marčana, you could easily meet him on this track. What is so magical about this area that a world-famous musician lives right here? Why is the trail named after him? Hauzer is also meritorious for the setup of the promenade. And its popularity did not need his name. From the centre of small Rakalj, across the bays of Luka and Kalavojna to the cape of Saint Mikula, an easy path, just 5 kilometres long, leads us through the maquis along the coast, offering a wonderful overlook of the Gulf of Raša and the islands of Cres and Lošinj in the distance. Unspoiled nature, untouched coast. There are pebble beaches and turquoise bays along the trail, that cannot be reached by car. Refreshing and wild in the summer, touchingly tame and peaceful in the winter, Stjepan Hauzer hiking trail near Marčana is a favorite of many locals and their guests.
