This map is result of cooperation of local action group for Central Istria (LAG) on their INSiGHTS project. It is intended for lovers of cycling, hiking, but also for all other guests who are interested in the complete offer of Central Istria, including Žminj.
The map features bike and hiking trails from the Tourist Boards of Motovun, Central Istria and Žminj. In addition to the large info panel next to Žminj Tower and the interactive map, the result of the project is both a printed map and a QR code map, which enables education on Žminj’s offer with the help of mobile phones. Visitors will find all the necessary information about churches, frescoes, chapels, sightseeing spots, caves, forests, old towns, restaurants, B&B accommodations as well as information on other accommodation facilities, agritourisms, wines, cheeses, local milk products, etc. This interactive map is also useful for renters throughout Žminj’s region, who can enter information about their accommodation units. This also applies to others, for example: owners of restaurants, shops, agencies, beauty salons or anyone else that wants to find its spot on the map. The principle is very simple. The owner or citizen that wants to insert certain information opens the link https://authentic-istria.com/hr/ and in the lower left corner selects “+ add content” (“+ dodaj sadržaj”), after which they are free to fill in the required information and select the correct tourist board. After this final step, the tourist board office receives an e-mail for content approval. Once approved, its content is shown on the map. It should be noted that there is also a “seasonality” option, through which the content can be put in an inactive state. The owner receives a link to the mail address through which one can view and edit one’s own content. However, if anyone encounters any difficulties with data entering, they can contact their local tourist boards where they will be assisted with the occurring issue.
