Information regarding the Istrian gourmet offer is spreading to the smartphone – the new application from the Istria Tourist Board for Apple and Android mobile devices enables a simple and efficient search of information concerning restaurants, taverns and tasting rooms for wine and olive oil in Istria.
There are approximately 500 objects on the list which were taken from the gastro Istra Gourmet guide and they are divided into three basic categories; Gourmet guides, Wine Roads and Olive Oil Roads. Along with the name and picture of the object, there is also the object’s address, telephone number, web site, e-mail address, working hours, a list of specialties for restaurants and the position of the object on the map with the distance from the owner of the mobile device, which makes the application very useful and practical.
