first_imgAs part of the second edition of the project “Meet your country”, the Association of Croatian Tourist Guides and Partners on the occasion of the Day of International Recognition of Croatia,  on January 13, 2019 (Sunday) beginning at 12:00 p.m. to organize free guided tours in all cities where tourist guide associations operate – members of ZDTVH. “We wanted to emphasize the importance of protected sites for the representation of the country and the Ordinance on the list of protected sites (which is still being drafted), which is the only place where our country will be represented only by tourist guides who have been educated in Croatia. ” Kristina Niuć Prka, president of the Association of Croatian Tourist Guide Associations, points out and added that 58 cities joined the initiative this year. Why have other cities, ie tourist boards, not joined the whole initiative so far? By the way, in Croatia we have a total of 555 local self-government units, 428 municipalities and 127 cities. The guides are intended for the local population to get to know their city and become ambassadors of Croatian tourism, but of course to all other visitors and tourists. List of cities and municipalities where free guided tours are organized: Trogir, Split, Solin, Klis, Sinj, Trilj, Dubrovnik, Korcula, Sibenik, Drnis, Zadar, Rab, Opatija, Vepribac, Lovran, Rijeka, Krk, Vrbnik, Trsat, Labin, Rovinj, Pula, Vodnjan, Pazin, Buje, Porec, Karlovac, Zagreb, Varazdin, Slavonski Brod, Lipik, Osijek, Vukovar, Vinkovci, Otocac, Plitvice, Djakovo, Buzet, Roc, Hum, Motovun, Viskovo, Imotski, Cres, Novalja, Krapisnke Toplice, Jastrebarsko, Pag, Bakar, Daruvar, Hrvatska Kostajnica, Nin, Kastav, Sisak. Do we want tourism development or not? Obviously some don’t want to and don’t care. So don’t be surprised afterwards if things stand still. It’s up to the people. In conclusion, this is an extremely important topic, getting to know your city and turning citizens into ambassadors of Croatian tourism. Why other cities, ie tourist boards, have not joined the whole initiative so far, even though it is their “obligation” precisely because of their primary activity and the importance of the topic, and it costs nothing but good will, is a question that all tourism entrepreneurs must ask themselves. of every city.

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.
