Art & Craft
Kinda is also known as a region where artists, craftsmen, painters, writers and other creative people love to stay. So, it will be no surprise that you can find many art and crafts exhibitions, as well as other expositions of creative works. Also, there are farms and other companies on the countryside, where people produce their own products, like marmalades, cheese, meat/fish, pastries and other delicacies. Many of these farms and companies open their premises during the summer, so you can see how the products are produced, and buy them.
