Pazinska jama

 /  / Pazinska jama

Magnificent Pazinska jama will enchant you at first sight. Wild nature, surrounded by medieval town and nice long routes with plenty of space for more. A bit of everything, long and short routes, steep and slabby. You name it, you got it.


First drive to Pazin and grab a coffee. Continue in direction of Pula and at the roundabout turn right for ZIP line and Hotel Lovac. Park under hotel and you will see Pazinska jama. Main wall is just under the lower ramp of ZIP line. Main walking path through the cave is good, but the approaches to sectors may not be so well maintained.


Best from late spring until late autumn. In summer it is possible to climb in the morning as the temperatures are always a bit cooler down there. Pazinska jama is a famous natural attraction, as is whole Pazin with ethnographic museum in the biggest medieval castle in Istria, famous for the escape of count Mathias Sandorf, which was described in a book in 1885 by Jules Verne. Recommended!


The rock may not be everywhere perfect and some route can be dusty, but the easiest way to clean them is by climbing! Bolts and anchors are mainly new.


Not recommended for small kids as the base of the routes is small and sometimes uncomfortable. They can go on ZIP line in between.

Routes (from left to right)

Routes are up to 40 meters long on grey limestone which can still break sometimes as routes are still mainly new. Long rope and a big set of quickdraws is recommended.
