Tradition-Istrian souvenirs
Original Istrian souvenirs are items which, regardless of their simplicity, tell us much about Istria and its people. They attract great attention as they are a perfect combination of traditional culture and modernity.
In search of the best way to express Istria's special features, producers of these souvenirs have often turned to traditional heritage, so that kažuni, folk costumes, earthenware jugs bukalete, traditional houses, Istrian instrument sopele, different types of tools, goat and Istrian ox boškarin are just some of the many motifs taken from the fields, wine cellars and chests that have found their place at fairs or stalls as typical souvenirs /Croatian souvenirs/.
