The study of the bearing capacities of the Split-Dalmatia County has begun

first_imgBased on a public tender announced in June this year, the Split-Dalmatia County Tourist Board signed a contract and ordered scientific expert material from the Institute for Tourism, which will answer questions about what is enough in the county’s tourism and infrastructure, where they are in the red and how much space there is. for growth.The aim of the study is to define the total load accommodation capacity for each of the six clusters in the county, according to the Institute for Tourism, which will calculate the carrying capacity of the Split Riviera and especially the city of Split, Makarska Riviera, Dalmatian Zagora and the islands of Brac, Hvar and Vis.Based on the analysis of current accommodation capacities, possibilities of reception and arrangement of beaches, traffic and communal infrastructure and natural and cultural resources, it will be found out how many nights and arrivals of tourists can be in the county during the year, especially in the “peak” season in July and August. , without endangering the sustainable development and quality of life of the local community. “It is also necessary to determine the maximum number of accommodation capacities in certain parts of the county with regard to its spatial specifics. We expect the Study to say for each of the tourist clusters of our county what are the tourist figures that this area can withstand, without compromising the balance in the supply of electricity, water and energy and not spatially endangering the area with excessive construction and significantly disrupting quality of life. local population.These are logical questions after years of great growth in popularity and tourist arrivals in our county. All this will be the basis for the work of destination management that will manage the development of tourism in the county. ” points out Joško Stella, director of the Split-Dalmatia County Tourist BoardThe study of the carrying capacity of tourism in the Split-Dalmatia County, prepared by scientists from the Institute of Tourism in Zagreb, should be completed by the spring of 2018. This is the only such example, at least known to me in Croatia, that one tourist destination started by making a study. The preparation of the study should have been the basis for development, not first to build accommodation capacities, and then to do the study. But again, better than ever, there are still things that can be corrected and directed to the right path of sustainable and strategic development.All the problems that are present in the tourism sector are the result of the elements and not strategic development. This is great news for our tourism, especially the Split-Dalmatia County, and I sincerely hope that other tourist destinations will follow this positive example because the strategic development of a tourist destination is the only right path for long-term tourism development.Record tourist results in Split-Dalmatia County According to its results and excellent tourist traffic in August, the Split-Dalmatia County remained at the very top of the country’s tourist regions. Thus, in August alone, based on eVisitor data, 892.328 guests visited the Split-Dalmatia County, realizing 5.969.680 tourist nights, which is six percent more in arrivals and seven percent more in nights than last year, the SDŽ Tourist Board points out.The main part of the tourist year and the first eight months of Central Dalmatia ends with an impressive number of 2.791.556 arrivals, which is 13 percent more than last year and 15,7 million overnight stays. The tourist star of the season is the city of Split, which is still at the top of the list of the most popular tourist destinations in the country, where there were 2.031.003 overnight stays in the first eight months. Makarska had 1.284.076 overnight stays, which is 13 percent more than last year, which placed the two cities among Croatia’s Top 20 tourist destinations. “All the announcements say that the excellent visit will continue during October, so Central Dalmatia is becoming a prime example of the extension of the tourist season in all parts of the county.Stella points out.Split Airport also recorded excellent results, with 2.123.209 passengers so far, which is 24 percent more than last year and thus became the first airport in terms of traffic in Croatia. Most overnight stays in the first eight months were made by guests from Poland, the Czech Republic, Germany and Scandinavia.last_img read more

Beilstein: A bittersweet goodbye

first_imgI have only spent three semesters writing sports for The Badger Herald, and I sincerely wish I had spent more. After spending two semesters writing for the opinion section during my freshman and sophomore year, I decided I should try my hand at hopefully my future career.While I have acquired a number of skills, they are not comparable to the group of writers and community I have been exposed to. To my editors from last year, Eric Goldsobel and Nick Brazzoni, to this year’s, David Hayes and Ben Cross, and the countless other writers I have met, I am grateful to have known you. The Herald office offered me nothing but support, encouragement and guidance in my short time here.I enjoy looking back to the time when I did not know what to expect or how to exactly go about my duties, looking back to the nerves I felt when I interviewed my first athlete, looking back to the first game I covered and the satisfaction I felt when I saw my stories go online and to print. I thank the Herald for such a transition to where I am now as a sports journalist.Cross: Why Tony Romo deserves the respect of the massesFormer Dallas Cowboys quarterback and Wisconsin native Tony Romo leaves behind a high school, college and professional legacy few can Read…Though professors would advise against it for a journalist, I was able to become a fan of the teams and players I covered. I was able to see their lives as athletes and students. From interviews at practice, via phone or postgame, I gained an enormous appreciation and admiration for the athletes here at Wisconsin.Over the last three semesters, I have covered both the softball team and the women’s soccer team here at University of Wisconsin. For all four years, I have been a member in the marching band playing at football, volleyball, basketball and hockey games. These beats gave me the opportunity to view Wisconsin sports beyond what I would normally see.I was able to cover a Wisconsin women soccer team’s run all the way to the second round of the NCAA tournament and a player that now competes for the U.S. national team. I was also able to watch and cover a Wisconsin softball team grow from a team four games above .500 to a team that matched their previous season’s win total with nine games to play and a shot at the NCAA tournament.I would like to thank all the players and coaches who gave me the time to talk with them to better my stories: Kelsey Jenkins, Brooke Wyderski, Samantha Arents, Melanie Cross, Taylor Berry, Kaitlyn Menz, Sara Novak, Kirsten Stevens, Taylor-Paige Stewart, Chloe Miller, coach Yvette Healy, Coach Danielle Zymkowitz, Caitlyn Clem, Rose Lavelle, Sydney McGinnis, Micaela Powers, Kylie Schwarz, Dani Rhodes, Steph Fabry and Coach Paula Wilkins.Schreter: Romo turned out to be less of a success, more of a failureTony Romo, long time Dallas Cowboys’ Quarterback, has retired at the age of 36 to pursue a career in sports Read…I would also like to thank the sports contact for both teams, Kelli Grashel, for coordinating interviews and providing everything I needed to do my job.I look forward to moving on to another chapter, but I will never forget my time here. I look forward to keeping up with the Herald and the teams’ progress in the years to come.last_img read more
