JULES VERNE STREET IN PAZIN
At 28-th of february, 1992, a City Council of Pazin pronounced
the Jules Verne Street (in Croatian: Ulica Jules Vernea), as a first visual
sign of dedication to this great French author and his writings about Pazin
in his novel "Mathias Sandorf" (1885)
A Jules Verne street in Pazin is placed just in position where
events in "Mathias Sandorf" were described: down this very street, Mathias
Sandorf and his companions were brought to Pazin in a closed coach, and
in this very castle (on the photo) they were prisoned, and here from they
escaped. A castle in Pazin is a thousand years old building, for a first
time it's mentioned in one document signed by emperor Oton II, at 983.
Today, there are two museums placed in this castle, a City Museum
of Pazin, and Istrian Etnographic Museum. Castle's windows which are turned
to the oposit side of Jules Verne Street, shows a view into a mysterious
gorge where through Mathias Sandorf, in Verne's novel, found a way to freedom.
