Mošćenice is a small town high on a hill overlooking the Adriatic Sea.  It dates from the 13th and 14th century.  See the history of the town

The village population is about 200, but the parish church has about 1300 congregation.  The walled town is very well preserved.  While being shown the local museum with an olive grinder and press, we were treated to brandy - as much as we wanted.

The small one-room school was built on the ruins of the castle tower.  Currently the school has 5 students - one student in 1st grade and 4 students in 2nd grade.  In a few years the students will attend school in Opatija.  We were allowed  inside the classroom to take pictures and speak with the students.  They really enjoyed seeing their pictures on the digital camera.

We walked on the one paved road overlooking the Adriatic Sea.  

After a few hours we returned to Opatija
