Istria’s turbulent history has left a striking mark on local gastronomy, culture and customs, and it is precisely the Open Days of Istrian agrotourism that present traditional Istrian cuisine through genuine experiences.
Harvests are completed, grain is stored, fruit and vegetables have found their place either pickled or in marmalade, and the preparation of sausages and pork loin is in full swing. Family farms have worked diligently throughout the year, and in November they open their doors to visitors and offer Istrian specialities at promotional prices.
Agritourism farms included in the event offer menus based on ingredients of their own production in combination with various experiences such as visits to animals on the farm, folklore performances, live music presenting their own products together with those from local family farms.
Visitors can round off the entire experience by visiting the cycling and hiking trails, enjoying the scenery, then tasting the local delicacies and trying various additional activities, and perhaps even a balun, a traditional Istrian dance.
