The new project combines the beauties of Croatian parks with a unique camping experience

first_imgCroatia can be proud of the fact that such a small country has as many as 8 national parks and 11 nature parks and a large number of nature reserves, and the vast majority of us have visited at least part of this natural wealth. The project “CAMPING near PARKS in CROATIA” connects national parks and nature parks with activities and affordable accommodation on camping pitches or mobile homes in the immediate vicinity of untouched nature parks. But the question is how much have we really experienced these protected natural oases? Not just as visitors, but truly observing the awakening and calming of nature. How deeply did we feel the smells and sounds of nature in spring, summer, autumn or winter and what activities did we do in them? It consists of a brochure with a map of Croatian natural beauties and camps near parks and a web portal campinginparks.eu, and is intended for all campers and nature lovers. As many as 18 camps and a total of 19 national parks and nature parks are participating in the project.center_img Through the website you can plan your route, book camping accommodation and buy tickets for national parks and nature parks. It will help you better organize your trip, to visit as many parks, natural beauties and campsites as possible. The most common answer and justification is that we live hectic lives and do not have the time or money to enjoy the natural resources of Croatia.last_img read more

CNTB in the top 5 best tourism organizations in the world according to Virtuos

first_imgThe Virtuos nomination was also commented on by Ina Rodin, Director of the CNTB Representation in New York. “In the last few years, CNTB has achieved valuable successes and recognitions in the North American market, and the nomination of Virtuos is extremely important because it confirms that Croatia has finally entered the company of leading destinations for guests with refined taste and deep pocket. This is also the second nomination for Croatia, which is a confirmation to all stakeholders in Croatian tourism that their work is recognized in the US market.”, Said Rodin.  The 2019 Virtuoso Award ceremony was held in Las Vegas as part of Virtuoso Travel Week, and the award for the best tourism organization was won by Switzerland. The national tourism organizations of Australia, New Zealand and Slovenia were also in the final selection. The Croatian National Tourist Board was nominated by Virtuos, the leading association of travel organizers in the luxury tourism segment, for the best tourist organization in the world in 2019. Virtuoso is a network of the best American luxury travel agencies with more than 20.000 advisors worldwide and an annual turnover of more than 26,4 billion US dollars. The Virtuoso network includes more than 1.800 partners, including top hotels and resorts, tour operators, airlines, agencies, and the main goal of the network is to offer customers detailed planned and unforgettable trips. Croatian members of this prestigious network are Calvados Club Luxury Travel, Leonidas Travel, Fortuna Travel, but also hotels Villa Dubrovnik, Boutique Hotel Alhambra and from this year Monte Mulini. The network of Croatian members is expected to expand further as there are hotels that also meet the high standards and criteria of Virtuos, a community that is extremely important for the development and growth of luxury tourism. Let us add that Croatia is among the top five fastest growing destinations on the American market, which is confirmed by the strong growth of tourist traffic in the last few years. Namely, last year alone, there were about 585 thousand arrivals and 1,6 million overnight stays from the US market in Croatia, which compared to 2017 represents a growth of 22 percent in arrivals and 18 percent in overnight stays. Positive trends were maintained in 2019, during which a high growth of 11 percent in arrivals and overnight stays was recorded. The additional importance of this market is also shown by the data from the TOMAS research, which the CNTB conducts in cooperation with the Institute for Tourism, and according to which American tourists are the best consumers with an average of 158 euros of daily consumption. “We are extremely pleased that the Croatian National Tourist Board competed in the final selection for the world’s best tourist organization. The nomination itself among the top five national tourist organizations is a great thing and a recognition for a small country like Croatia. This recognition is even more important for us when it comes from a renowned association like Virtuos, which further confirms the excellent position that our country enjoys in the important American market. This is the result of the work and contribution of all tourism workers who work diligently throughout the year on the promotion and development of Croatian tourism. This will certainly be a great incentive for our further work and I would like to take this opportunity to thank all my colleagues for their dedicated work and contribution.”, Said the director of the Croatian Tourist Board Kristjan Staničić, adding that the positive trends are confirmed by the tourist traffic from the USA, which only in July recorded an increase of 8 percent in arrivals and overnight stays.   Source / photo: Croatian National Tourist Board This nomination is also a confirmation that Virtuoso recognized innovation and creativity in the work of the Croatian Tourist Board, but also the potential of Croatia as a destination for luxury tourism, the CNTB points out.

Trump ‘offered pardon’ to Assange if he denied Russia leak, court hears

first_imgAssange’s defence cited a statement from Robinson in which she said that Rohrabacher had been to see Assange and said “on instructions from the president, he was offering a pardon or some other way out, if Mr Assange… said Russia had nothing to do with the DNC leaks”.District Judge Vanessa Baraitser said the evidence was admissable.Robinson did not respond to emailed and telephone requests from AFP for comment.US intelligence agencies have concluded Russia hacked into the computer servers of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) during Trump’s campaign against Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.WikiLeaks later published the emails, which proved politically damaging to Clinton, before the November 2016 vote.Australian national Assange, 48, is facing 18 counts in the US — 17 of them under the Espionage Act.None of them is related to the DNC hack and instead concern WikiLeaks’s publication of diplomatic and defence cables about US campaigns in Afghanistan and Iraq.Trump has played down Russia’s involvement in the DNC leak, including when he appeared to side with Russian President Vladimir Putin over his own intelligence agency’s assessment of what happened.”I have great confidence in my intelligence people, but I will tell you that President Putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial today,” Trump said during a joint press appearance with Putin during their July 2018 summit in Helsinki.The extradition hearing is set to start at Woolwich Crown Court, which is next to the high-security Belmarsh prison where he is being held.The hearing is expected to last all week, before being adjourned for three months, to resume on May 18. Assange appeared at the administrative hearing via videolink, wearing dark tracksuit bottoms and a brown jumper over a white shirt.He spoke only to confirm his name and date of birth. He sat and held a pile of papers throughout the hearing.Topics : “The president barely knows Dana Rohrabacher other than he’s an ex-congressman. He’s never spoken to him on this subject or almost any subject. It is a complete fabrication and a total lie,” Trump press secretary Stephanie Grisham said in a statement.”This is probably another never-ending hoax and total lie” by the Democratic Party, she said, a day after Trump controversially pardoned or issued other forms of clemency to 11 people including a former governor jailed for corruption, and other high-profile white-collar criminals.The revelation came at a case management hearing at Westminster Magistrates’ Court before Monday’s formal start of Washington’s extradition request for him to face espionage charges.If found guilty in the United States, he could be jailed for 175 years. US President Donald Trump promised to pardon WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange if he denied Russia leaked emails of his 2016 election rival’s campaign, a London court was told on Wednesday.Assange’s lawyer Jennifer Robinson said in a document that Trump relayed the offer through former US Congressman Dana Rohrabacher, the UK’s domestic Press Association news agency reported.The White House quickly issued a denial that Trump had dangled a pardon in exchange for help in the Russia controversy, which has cast a shadow over his first term in office.last_img read more
