Due to its isolation, the village of Kotli has kept its rural 19th century look. It also managed to preserve its mills that were in use till 1964. The stone houses have many wooden elements, a material much used in the old architecture of northern Istria. When compared to the surrounding area, these houses are more complex and lavish. Thanks to the development of trades and crafts, life in Kotli was good. Its inhabitants were known to be excellent players of the traditional musical instruments bajs, vijulina and klarinet.
