We welcome you to an adventure with Istrian culture and tradition. We will start the day by visiting Poreč, a charming town located in the heart of the western coast of the peninsula. Porečis undoubtedly defined as the gem of the northern Adriatic. The picturesque location of the town, a multitude of narrow streets with wealthy noble palaces, historic temples, restaurants with a vibe, small shops with colourful souvenirs and street artists, make up the amazing atmosphere of the town. The largest attraction of this Istrian gem is undoubtedly the Euphrasian Basilica with the preserved early Christian mosaics. This is the reason why the basilica was listed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. With a licensed guide, we will stroll along the historic part of the town and we will learn about the rich history and numerous monuments.

After our free time, we will go to the countryside. We will make our way to a private household, where local cattle are bred. The place is called Boškarin – the region’s symbol. These are white-greyish cows with long hooves. For ages, these have been used for fieldwork, ploughing and pulling carts. The weight of one animal may even reach up to 1200kg.

Along with the onset of agricultural automation, the number of Boškarins has dramatically decreased. At one point, it has even become an extinct breed. Owing to local policy and special programmes, it was possible to rescue the species against extinction. Currently, there are about 2500 Boškarins in Istria area. Amongst restauranteurs, its meat is highly appreciated. It is also an integral part of the local cuisine.

It is worthy to note that thiscattleis bred far away from the civilisation in the natural environment, and it is fed sustainably.
