Curious to see a bit of what a CIG course contains? This short video was created to take you there with us.

Žminj is a small hilltop town in the centre of Croatia’s biggest peninsula – Istria. A very specific place hides amazing local traditions. On a Certified Interpretive Guide (CIG) course in October, a group of ten participants discovered local heritage and their own deeper meanings.

We hope this video will stimulate your imagination and by watching it you will also open your colourful umbrellas and fly with us – feeling at least a part of that wonderful, positive atmosphere and discovering some of the cultural, natural and rich gastronomic heritage of this beautiful region. Maybe you’ll join us live, somewhere, next time… until then, click the link.
