U show about Istria we talked to the owners of Istrian restaurants, but also winemakers, who testified to the rich eno-gastronomic value of Istria.

The report also mentions the most common traditional vessel in Rovinj, the batana. “Such shows that reveal lesser-known cultural and historical facts of Croatian tourist destinations are our special challenge and imperative in the tourist promotion of Croatia on the French emitting market, since for 60 percent of French people the cultural heritage is the main motive for traveling to a foreign destination ”, said Daniela Mihalić Đurica, Director of the CNTB Representation in France. ARTE TV shows are broadcast six days a week and are watched by over 800 viewers a day. The recorded reports are repeated on several occasions, and are also available at the ARTE TV media library.
