    Promotion of the monograph and exhibition

    On the occasion of the 45th anniversary of the artistic work of Labin native painter Vinko Šaina, a monographic exhibition set to open on 22 September at Labin Town Gallery, Labin Museum and Alvona Gallery will present the rich opus of this artist, perpetually inspired by the beauty of his hometown scenery. One of the most prominent local painters had his artworks exhibited in Croatia and abroad, and is also known as the founder of Alvona Gallery at the church of Our Lady of Carmel in Labin Old town. After the reconstruction and restoration of this sacral object, registered as culture monument, from 1993 Alvona Gallery has grown into a must-see art and performance point in Istria, with Šaina's colorful Labin and Rabac horizons becoming the recognizable symbols of Labin.

  • Bela nedelja - White Sunday


    Plomin (Kršan)

    Folk festival

    Folk festival

    The ancient town of Plomin has proudly overlooked Plomin Bay for centuries as testimony to the people who have created its culture and life as we know it today.
    On the feast of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary, the Plomin Parish celebrates its patron saint, together with White Sunday. Traditionally every year people come from all areas to renew old friendships and to take a break from their hectic lives, to enjoy programs filled with songs and a number of sporting events.

    White Sunday is a traditional religious and folk festival, which has meant a lot to the people of Plomin since ancient times, and is celebrated on the first Sunday in October. The day of festivities begins with a Mass in honour of the Blessed Virgin Mary, whilst during the day entertainment and sporting events alternate between themselves. It used to mark Plomin’s big fair day, when the town was visited by people from Rijeka and from Trieste too, presenting and selling their own products.
    Although the fair tradition has been lost, White Sunday has continued to maintain its importance for local inhabitants and everyone with Plomin in their hearts.
