Key Q+ - Culture and Tourism as keys for quality cross-border development of Italy and Croatia is a project aimed at increasing the tourist offer of the cross-border area by developing a unique tourism product based on a common cultural and culinary heritage that connects Croatian and Italian border regions and exploring and discovering the tastes, flavours and traditions of rural areas surrounding the north of the Adriatic.
The Mali Lošinj Tourist Board is one of the eight project partners whose actions are aimed at promoting economic development through sustainable tourism or other activities based on the protection and promotion of natural and cultural heritage.
