Bridge over the Abyss, Pazin

From Rovinj we took the morning bus east to Pazin to discover the abyss in the rock below the town.  This place was the source of inspiration for one of Jules Verne’s stories “Mathius Sandorf”.  There is even a street in Pazin named after Jules Verne, in his honour.  At this time of the season, the cave was inaccessible due to high water levels.  Finding a copy of the book to read turned out to be impossible.  The tourist bureau has it available in German, but not French or English.  I did manage to find a digital French copy for my Kindle a few days later though.
