Dare to explore - take a look and step into the heart of Istria

Istria has always been a Terra Magica for travellers and the magic of its interior sworn by secrets. Situated just a step away from the vastness of the Adriatic Sea, in the heart of the fairy-like Mediterranean peninsula, sheltered by the proud Istrian mountains, Central Istria attracts visitors with its undiscovered beauties. It is not out of the ordinary for the Central Istria Tourist Board's Dare to explore promotional film to win two awards at prestigious tourist film festivals! The Tourism Multimedia Award is a great recognition from the 21st International Golden City Gate Festival, where this video won second place in the Region category. In Russia, the film won in the commercial film category at the Travel Film International Film Festival. “Dare to explore” invites you to get to know the green heart of Istria through a revival of legends and magical creatures, but also through meeting the inhabitants of central Istria and tasting the valuable fruits of their work. Let's take a look at their stories... 

Croatia introducing Safe Stay in Croatia, designation and protocols for tourists

Safe stay in Croatia is a national designation of security protocols in tourism and hospitality that was initiated in 2021. It is awarded to stakeholders in the tourism sector by the Ministry of Tourism and Sports. This designation allows visitors to easily identify destinations, accommodation providers, transport, tourist attractions and other facilities that have adopted global standards for health and hygiene. The prominent Safe stay in Croatia label informs visitors that a tourist facility is operating according to the current recommendations of the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) and the Croatian Institute of Public Health. By introducing this label, Croatia is putting visitor safety first. Find more here. Also, on THIS link you can find detailed information for your arrival and stay in Istria.
