Croatia

All roads lead to Istria for pršut lovers this weekend…

Organised by the Municipality of Tinjan, together with the Association of Istrian prosciutto producers and the Region of Istra, the event has become a tradition in the region.

Home-made Istrian pršut has been considered and recognized as a symbol of perfection, the Istrian people call it vijulin, meaning violin. It has earned its royal status due to its taste, smell, colour, the right softness and freshness. Its prestigious position is owned to strict, traditional rules producers follow.
