first_imgAn interesting workshop on the sustainable development of cultural tourism was held in the Museum of Vučedol Culture, organized by the Croatian Tourist Board. The workshop was held within the project “European Destinations of Excellence” (EDEN), and part of the entire program included a two-day study trip of journalists who got to know the beauties of Ilok, Vučedol and Vukovar. These are the destinations that are this year’s winner of the national EDEN election for 2016/2017. year, which was held on the topic of “Cultural Tourism”.On behalf of the Croatian National Tourist Board, the workshop was attended by Slavija Jačan Obratov, Director of the Sector for Destination Management and Offer Development Support, who stressed the importance of promoting cultural tourism. “Communicating emotions and creating experiences play a key role in promoting the offer of cultural tourism. The promotion of lesser-known and non-traditional tourist destinations, the creation of a European network of destinations that develop sustainable forms of tourism and the reduction of seasonality are the basic goals of the EDEN project, launched in 2006 by the European Commission.”, Pointed out Jačan Obratov.The director of the Vukovar-Srijem County Tourist Board, Rujana Bušić Srpak, emphasized that the basic tourist identity of this county is based on cultural attractions.

She also added that in their case it was important not only to successfully implement the reconstruction projects of the fortresses in Šibenik, but also to effectively manage the post-project period. The conclusion of the workshop is that creative, modern and innovative models of cultural heritage management are increasingly in trend and that they need to be offered to foreign and domestic guests because Croatia is truly a country of rich cultural heritage.Unfortunately, this very interesting workshop was not announced, at least to the media, nor to the general public, which is a great pity and omission, because the general public was not aware of its holding, and accordingly could neither educate nor join the workshop.last_img read more


first_imgTHE curtains of the Stag Elite League will come down tonight with a triple-header at the Guyana Defence Force (GDF) Ground, Camp Ayanganna.A Victoria Kings versus Monedderlust clash at 16:00 hrs will kick off the day’s proceedings, followed by Top XX tackling Buxton United, while the final game of the evening brings together the home side (GDF) and rivals Fruta Conquerors.The GDF by virtue of their superior points (27 points) were already crowned champions of the league, which means the outcome of their clash with Fruta Conquerors (22) game will not change the present standing of the top two teams.This leaves the two top teams playing for their pride with GDF wanting to maintain their unbeaten run and Fruta Conquerors wanting to prove that Army men are not unbeatable.However, in games one and two, there is a lot to play for since should Victoria Kings (11), lose to Monedderlust (3) and Top XX (4)lose to Buxton United (12), there will be a change at the bottom of the table with Monedderlust FC moving to fifth place and Top XX FC to the bottom of the table.Should Victoria Kings win against Monedderlust and Top XX defeat Buxton United, then there will be a mid-table change with Victoria Kings moving into third place and Buxton United to fourth. The table will remain the same if both Victoria Kings and Buxton United win their respective games.In summing up the second installation of the STAG Elite League, Guyana Football Federation’s Competitions Director,Ian Alves believes “the newly-added clubs demonstrated improved play as the league progressed. However, there were some challenges with the condition of venues which resulted in venue changes to at least two matches.”This final match-up of the season will also signal the top four teams which will advance to the ‘Big Four’ tournament. The bottom two teams will find themselves in relegation zone.The Stag Elite League is the senior league of the GFF and seeks to, among other things, provide a space for consistent and competitive engagement of footballers while facilitating disciplined players of a high technical and tactical ability to be identified and or selected for national duties.Meanwhile, a release from the GFF stated that patrons will be given a chance to win fabulous prizes including family meals,compliments of Church’s Chicken;jerseys and caps,compliments of Jialing, and cash vouchers and Gilette hampers compliments of Ansa Mc Al.The grand patron prize will be a JIALING 250cc motorcycle,compliments of Automobile Power Products.
