"0nce a photograph of the Earth, taken from the outside, is available, a new idea as powerful as any in history will be let loose."

Welcome to the Visnjan Observatory

Visnjan Observatory is situated in the western part of the Istrian peninsula. It is part of the picturesque city of Visnjan.

During the past 15 years, Visnjan became one of the world's most prolific discovery sites for the small bodies in the Solar System. More than 1400 minor plantes have been discovered with our 40 cm telescope.

Astronomy is not the only thing that is going on in Visnjan. We are involved in many educational projects that include physics, biology, chemistry, ecology and many other fields. Our programs offer new and creative methods of teaching science to young people.
