INSPIRATION FOR THE CONTEST CONCEPT: The intention is to revive the history of Istria, inspire travelers and residents to find themselves in this magical peninsula. Istria that inspires travelers with its the past and a project that is inspired by the region and its ghosts of the past (lat. Spirit). The symbol of Istria – the goat – became the symbol of the project. But Istra Inspirit goat is different – it tells the story of Istria. The goat is standing upright, in human position, thus symbolizing the strength and pride that comes from the rich history and tradition of the peninsula. It is a witness of the time, traveler, adventurer and entertainer. There is a crown on its hear, which symbolizes nobility and points to Istria as a place of different cultures and nationalities which live together. Its colours are also the colours of Istria – blue and green, like the sea and natural beauties. The brand was created, and the story began to spread. Contest participants will have the opportunity to be part of Istria Inspirit stories, myths and legends by creating their own stories to connect with our project and have the opportunity to win interesting prizes by ‘stancija Kumparička‘. This farm is located close Mutvoran village, and it produces  goat cheese products and other products made from goat’s milk, such as yogurt or caramel. Kumparička is one of the few places in the region with its own herd of goats.
