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_imgLegon Cities FC and Ghana International goalkeeper, Fatau Dauda, has denied claims that he employed black magic (juju) against former Black Stars goalkeeper Adam Kwarasey in order to maintain his spot within the team.Reports were rife during and after the 2014 World Cup in Brazil that tension existed between the two shot stoppers due to competition for places and this had forced Dauda to take the matter up in the spiritual realms.He was blamed for Kwarasey’s inconsistencies at the time and also the spate of injuries that he suffered immediately after the World Cup.“Yes, Ghanaians are saying it and I have heard it but that’s the nature of job.“If I have juju I will use it to secure a big deal outside to play for Real Madrid or Barcelona to make big money.“I pray a lot, not for performances but to God to protect me from injury.“I train a lot, I am 34 years but the training I go through I don’t think the young ones can match it.“I train and pray so I don’t know where that rumour is coming from,” he stated on The Tracker on Citi Tv.Dauda went on to add that contrary to reports, he has a very cordial relationship with Kwarasey which begun at Afcon 2013.“In 2013 at the AFCON he supported me a lot.“Before every game he would come to my room and tell me to go and do well.“He even gave me a phone one time because he had purchased a new one.“He asked me to give him any amount of money that I had so I could keep it because he likes me.“So I’m unsure where these things are coming from” he concluded.The veteran Dauda recently returned from a stint in Nigeria to feature for Ghana Premier League side Legon Cities FC.According to him his efforts are focused on helping the young team do well this campaign.last_img read more
