An excellent initiative of free guidance for citizens throughout Croatia has been launched – Get to know your country

first_imgAs part of the project ‘Get to know your country’, the Association of Croatian Tourist Guides (ZDTVH), with the support of the Croatian Tourist Board, on the occasion of the Day of International Recognition of Croatia, January 14, 2018 (Sunday) starting at 12:00 p.m. to organize free guided tours in all cities where tourist guide associations operate – members of ZDTVH.In particular, it is about the organization of free guided tours by local tourist guides in each city, and all guided tours with tourist guides will start at the same time. The guides are intended for the local population to get to know their city and become ambassadors of Croatian tourism, but of course all visitors and tourists.So far, 30 cities have joined this great initiative, and I sincerely hope that all cities will be involved, because this is an extremely important topic, getting to know your city and turning citizens into ambassadors of Croatian tourism.  “In this way, we want to give citizens a special gift throughout Croatia, congratulate the Day of International Recognition of Croatia and point out the importance of tourism professionals for international reputation as well as the importance of protected sites. In the light of the new Law on the provision of services in tourism which implements European directives, protected sites are the only areas where history and cultural heritage and national identity can only be represented by tourist guides educated in the Republic of Croatia.Kristina Niuć Prka, president of the Association of Croatian Tourist Guides, added and added that she hoped that all cities from Slavonia, through Zagreb, Lika, Kvarner, Istria, Dalmatia to Dubrovnik would join the initiative. “Tourist guides interpret cultural heritage, and it is cultural heritage that sets us apart from globalization.”Concludes Nuić Prka.Get to know your city and be ambassadors of Croatian tourismA great tourist story and a very important segment in the mosaic of our tourism that we have absolutely neglected. The city is the people, so the local people are tourism and the best ambassadors of Croatian tourism. The locals give rhythm and pulse to the destination, and guests want to get to know us and our culture of living, customs, our stories… because that is the very essence of tourism.An ambassador of Croatian tourism is a person who is proud of our country, history, customs, culture, heritage, successes – proud to be a Croat. An ambassador of Croatian tourism is a person who promotes his tradition and his region, who respects himself, because if we do not respect ourselves, others will not respect us either. Anyone can be an ambassador of Croatian tourism, you can also be one. When a guest asks you what they can see in your city be prepared to refer them to all the local stories. Tell him a story about your tradition, culture and customs. Recommend him the great tourist stories he can experience in your city or surroundings. Also, in order to be an ambassador of Croatian tourism, you do not have to be a tourist worker. If guests on the street ask you for advice, you can certainly boast of some local tourist stories or at least refer it to the tourist board in the city.Get to know your city and all the hidden stories it tells. Trust me, you will be pleasantly surprised. Be a tourist in your own city in order to experience it as well as possible and thus tell that story and experience to our tourists. Let us be proud of our identity, history, heritage, culture because we certainly have something to be proud of.Be ambassadors of Croatian tourism, tell stories.Related news:DO WE CARE ABOUT THE STORY WE TELL TO OUR TOURISTS?BE A HOST IN FAMILY ACCOMMODATION, NOT REAL ESTATE AGENTSCOMPETITION FOR CROATIAN TOURISM AMBASSADOR OPENED – APPLY!&amp;lt;br /&amp;gt;&lt;br /&gt;<br />

Promotional film as a result of excellent cooperation between the tourist boards of the island of Pag

first_imgThe island of Pag will soon be presented through a promotional film, which is being shot by the joint efforts of the tourist boards of the City of Pag, Novalja, Stara Novalja and the Municipality of Povljana. Finally synergy. The first shots of this film were shot in the town of Pag, and it was attended by members of the Cultural and Artistic Society Družina, Benedictine nuns from the monastery of St. Margarita, lacemaker Tonći Maržić, Martina Pernar from the Pag cheese factory and cyclists and Nordic walkers. The tourist boards of the island of Pag have been cooperating for more than two years when they realized that it is best and most effective to promote the entire island of Pag, not individual areas of tourist boards, because visitors are not interested in borders but what they offer. The island of Pag has a really original and rich tourist offer with a lot of specifics and it is a unique attitude to present themselves together. Each tourist board will present what they consider to be the most attractive because the entire offer cannot fit in a promo film. At the same time, each TZ will have a separate, shorter promo film from its area. Basically, the message of this movie is “One island and one common vision” which says it all, and it is a continuation of the previous successful and quality cooperation. After the coronavirus, we will continue to further promote the island of Pag within our capabilities with, as you could see for yourself, our tourist trump cards that we really have progress. But, like other tourist boards, we cannot currently predict visits for this year, although we are very optimistic about the data that the islands are the most visited. In conversations with our agencies and renters, we get a variety of data – from those whose reservations have been canceled to those who have filled in July and August. We wholeheartedly hope that our wishes will come true “, said Karavanic at the end. Another major project is the Agreement on the Association of Local Tourist Boards of the Island of Pag (Pag Tourist Board, Novalja Tourist Board, Povljana Tourist Board, Kolan Tourist Board and Stara Novalja Tourist Board) concluded in the implementation of the project Development of OUTDOOR tourism on the island of Pag. In other words, this agreement means the development and shaping of the island of Pag into a unique, harmonized and market-affirmed destination for outdoor (adventure, active) tourism, especially cycling and trails (racing-hiking) tourism by development stages until 2023, for which prior consent given by the Ministry of Tourism of the Republic of Croatia. This is the first step in applying for the funds of the Fund for United Tourist Boards, which amounts to about 50 million kuna. “For two years, the island of Pag has been presented at tourist fairs together – a joint visual was created, which proved to be successful because we presented ourselves at several tourist fairs and at the same time saved money. There are also some joint events – I single out the Pag project on the menu, which was held by the Tourist Board of the City of Pag for the first time last year with the aim of promoting the gastronomic offer of the island of Pag. This year the project was supposed to be extended to other tourist boards, but due to the corona virus we unfortunately had to give up. The project is being done in cooperation with the Bartul Kašić High School – catering, the Association of Craftsmen of Pag and Novalja and the tourist boards of Pag, Novalja, Povljana and Kolan. TZG Pag and TZG Novalje have been jointly organizing the International Rowing Regatta Osmerci on Pag for two years now. ” “The film should be completed in about twenty days, after which the promotion would begin. Of course, we will promote ourselves through social networks, portals, etc. The recording is the responsibility of the company Moonstone Production from Solin, which is extremely satisfied with the shots taken so far. ”, emphasized the director Karavanić.center_img After the town of Pag, the shooting continued in the area of ​​the Tourist Board of the town of Novalja, after which the team moved to Stara Novalja, and the last shots will be shot on Friday in the municipality of Povljana. One island and one shared vision – that the island of Pag is a tourist destination. In this context, a promotional film can certainly help and motivate visitors to visit the island of Pag. Destination promotion is certainly the main activity of tourist boards, so shooting a promo film can only bring benefits, both for this season and in the future. “The city of Pag will be presented in the film as a city of lace, since Pag lace is an intangible cultural heritage protected by UNESCO, with its unique view of the old town of Pag reminiscent of Dubrovnik, beautiful Pag folk costumes, Pag dance, Pag Basque from the Benedictine monastery of St. . Margaritas. We will also present our Pag cheese as a world-famous delicacy, views of the Pag saltworks, then the embracing stone and wind bike trail, co-financed by the Ministry of Regional Development and EU funds, and Nordic walking trails. “, told us the director of the Tourist Board of the City of Pag Vesna Karavanić. “The shooting of the joint promo film came as a logical continuation of the previous continuous cooperation, which has only just come out in the time of the corona virus. The promo film is intended for both domestic and foreign markets, which will be able to see the most attractive and beautiful that the island of Pag, which we also call Moon Island, offers – we offer beautiful beaches, fantastic, untouched nature ideal for cycling, running, trail, Nordic walking, walking, rowing, surfing, there is also the award-winning Adriatic camp Šimuni, then an excellent gastronomic offer that is world famous – Pag cheese, lamb, cottage cheese, honey, baškotine, wines, aromatic herbs…, rich and extremely interesting cultural heritage, ornithological reserves, underwater amphora site near Šimun, protected area of ​​Hanzina forest, Lun olive groves… ”, added Karavanic.

Where are America’s standards of civility?

first_imgI was taught that “if you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say anything at all” about another person, particularly if the individual was among the deceased. I was appalled and disgusted by this brutally offensive and callous statement about the former first lady.Whatever happened to manners, courtesy and standards of civility?Remember when Americans expected our presidents to be surrounded by “the best and the brightest” advisers? It would appear Donald Trump has chosen “the worst and the witless.” And where is the condemnation, the outrage?I must wonder what the reaction would be if Melania Trump were to pass away and (based on what The Daily Mail has published) someone posted the following on Instagram: “Melania Trump was a nasty former prostitute.” Would that be acceptable?Paul DeierleinSchenectady Categories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion Within hours of the announcement of the death of Barbara Bush, the following was posted on Instagram by Roger Stone, a longtime adviser to Donald Trump: “Barbara Bush was a nasty drunk.When it came to drinking, she made Betty Ford look like Carrie Nation.
