Istrian Bull

Boskarin (Istrian Bull) is the indigenous bull considered to be the Europe's largest mammal. During the 1960’s in Istria lived more than 60,000 boskarins, but thirty years later they were almost extinct. Their number is growing, thanks to the Istrian breeders and nowadays their meat is used for food. But still - the Boskarin is very special for Istrians. It has been the family pride, representing strength and wealth of villagers, and above of all - it has been a devoted friend.
Boskarin’s festival is held each year in Kanfanar. The most beautiful and largest bull on the recent fest was Bakina from Buzleti, and a most docile was Sivac from Buraji.
