PALENTA KOMPIRICA / POTATO POLENTA Vrhunski gastro užitak, iznikla je iz štedljive tradicije starih Grobničana. Njen okus nikad nije isti i ovisi o kakvoći kukuruza, kako se mljelo brašno, kakve je kvalitete krumpir i još puno sitnica. Danas se palenti u čast organizira veliki Festival palente i sira u lipnju. EN This superb delicacy is a result of the local tradition where in the old days people had to be very sparing with food. The taste of this type of polenta can vary depending on the quality of corn, the way the flour was milled, the quality of potatoes, and many other details. Nowadays the Polenta and Cheese Festival is organised every June to celebrate this traditional recipe. KAŠTEL / GROBNIK CASTLE Sazidan u obliku trokuta iznad Grobničkog polja naseljen je još u prethistoriji. Tu su boravili Iliri, Rimljani, Goti i Franci a od 1225. godine u vlasništvu je Krčih knezova, Frankopana. U 16. stoljeću prelazi u vlasništvo porodice Zrinski. Posljednji vlasnik bila mu je plemićka obitelj Thurn - Taxis, a 1945. godine biva nacionaliziran. Danas, prekrasan svjedok prošlosti pruža sa svojih zidina pogled na cijelu Grobnišćinu. EN Built in the shape of a triangle on top of a hill overlooking the plain of Grobničko Polje, this site was inhabited as early as prehistory. This is where Illyrians, Romans, Goths and Franks dwelled. From 1225, the castle was owned by the Princes of Krk, the noble Frankopan family. In the 16th century it became the property of the noble Zrinski family. The last owner was the Thurn – Taxis noble family, before it was nationalised in 1945. Today this site bears witness to local history and provides a magnificent view of the Grobnik area from its ancient walls.
