Live & work in Central Istria
The time has come to present you a project on which Tourist Board of Central Istria has been working on for several months.
Coronavirus and modern technology have changed the (business) world, so it is now possible to be on one side of the planet and work on the other, provided you have a good and reliable Internet connection. People who work that way are called digital nomads and they are mostly employed in the IT and marketing industries, which may not be the rule. That is why we decided to make a promotional campaign, as part of which we created a website, which will show digital nomads what opportunities they have to live and work in central Istria. You can view and share the website at the following link, thus contributing to its promotion.
The mentioned project is also aimed at extending the tourist season which implies an increase in tourist traffic, ie tourist consumption.
Tourist board of Central Istria wishes you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
