The public call was aimed at events that raise the quality of the tourist offer in central Istria, contribute to the growth of the number of guests and increase consumption, especially in the period before and after the season, and promote central Istria as an interesting tourist destination.

Approved events were allocated a total 16.170 euros, the highest amount of the grant is 2500 euros, and the smallest amount is 100 euros. This year, the 18th Days of Honey event, organized by the Association of Beekeepers 'Lipa' Pazin, received the highest amount of support.
