Istria is a region of Croatia in which Croatian and Italian cultures are in constant contact, a multicultural feature interwoven into the work and life of its citizens. The cultural heritages expressed through customs, languages, attire, folklore and music are passed on through daily experiences, especially upbringing and education. A multicultural education strategy is very important in the Croatian school system at all levels.
