Advent in Zagreb was named the best in Europe for the third time in a row

admin No Comments

first_imgZagreb’s Advent has been the best in Europe for the last three years and is breaking all records.Thus, for the third time in a row, it was named the best Advent in Europe by the European Best Destinations Advent portal in Zagreb. Thus, the Croatian capital in a competition of 20 cities defended the title that it will carry for 2018 and also became the only city that holds the title of the best Christmas destination for three years in a row, and the Tourist Board announced that it will no longer run.In the selection for the best Christmas destination in 2018 on the European Best Destinations portal, 200.596 people from 131 countries participated, and 38.830 voters gave their vote among the candidate cities to Zagreb, while the second-placed Colmar received a total of 24.625 votes. It is interesting that 72% of the votes came from Europe, while voters from Australia, America and Russia gave the most votes to Zagreb, while Zagreb is in second place among voters from Austria and England.Of course, there is always the question of the relevance of the choice, but in the end only one thing is important, and that is how Advent breaks all tourist records this year as well. Thus, in the first nine days of Advent 2017 (December 1-10.12.2017, 37.685), 28 arrivals of guests were recorded, which is 9 percent more than in the first 2016 days of Advent 68.480, and 23 overnight stays were realized, with a growth rate of 20.158 percent . Of these, domestic guests realized 22 overnight stays (an increase of 48.322 percent), while foreign guests registered 24 (an increase of XNUMX percent). Apart from guests from Croatia, most overnight stays were realized by tourists from Italy, Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Great Britain and the USA.So, whatever others think, Advent in Zagreb is a big hit, and TZGZ took advantage of the opportunity and made good money for the title of the best Christmas destination in Europe. The figures on the growth of arrivals and overnight stays show how relevant it is, and the story of the relevance of the European Best Destinations portal comes to an end. The title of the best Christmas destination is as relevant as the Tourist Board makes it relevant, and the Tourist Board succeeded in that and branded the whole story very well, and in the end it charged.In the final analysis, the figures speak for themselves, as well as justify the hypothesis that investing in a manifestation is an investment, not an investment. By the way, last year, according to a survey, the total consumption generated by Advent in Zagreb was estimated in the range of 390 to 438 million kuna.<br />

admin No Comments

first_imgMastercard, in cooperation with GfK – Center for Market Research, conducted an online survey among cardholders aged 18-55 in Croatia, according to which Croatia has experienced a festival boom in the past few years, which is most often discussed in terms of the number of tourists that festivals attracts.However, so far it was not known how Croatian citizens see festivals and how many they visit. According to the results of the MasterIndex survey, which Mastercard conducted in Croatia in May, half of the respondents (52%) have visited a festival in the last two years, and these are mostly street, music and cultural festivals in the country.Croats most often visit street festivals (42%), pop music festivals (32%), rock and metal music festivals (29%), gastronomic festivals (28%), electronic music festivals (21%) and various other cultural events.Respondents from northern Croatia most often go to festivals (57% of them have been to at least one festival in the last two years) and younger ones, aged 18 to 29 (58% of them have visited at least one festival in the same period). On the other hand, festivals are seldom visited by those between the ages of 40 and 49, and among them as many as 56% of those who have not been to any festival in the past two years. However, it is the group that most visits street festivals – according to research, the most popular among Croats.When it comes to festivals abroad, 7% of respondents have visited them in the last two years. This number is slightly higher among young people between 18 and 29 years of age (10%), Istrians (12%) and those with a monthly income of more than 9.000 kuna (18%).Pop music is loved by women, the most popular electronics in Northern CroatiaPop music festivals are most popular in Dalmatia (41%) and in Lika (41%). Women prefer them (41%) – only 22% of male respondents stated that they have visited one of the pop festivals in the past two years – and they are least visited by respondents from Zagreb (24%). Rock and metal music festivals are mostly attended by men (36% of them have visited such a festival in the past two years) and more often by people from Lika, and the least by residents of Northern Croatia.Photo: Klemen Štular, ForestlandGastronomic festivals are the most attractive to respondents from the age group 30-39 (33%), Zagreb and Lika, and the least among respondents from Dalmatia (19%). Jazz and classical music festivals are most often attended by respondents with incomes above 12.000 kuna (42%) and more often by Istrians and Slavonians. Electronic music festivals are most popular among respondents from Northern Croatia (27% of them have visited such a festival in the past two years) and in Istria, Primorje and Gorski Kotar and are more popular among men, young people and respondents with higher education. Film festivals are most popular among the people of Zagreb and in Lika, Kordun and Banovina.Consumption less than 1.000 kn per festival The majority of respondents who go to festivals (52%) have visited one to three festivals in the past two years, while 59% of respondents with incomes above HRK 12.000 have visited more than 3 festivals in the same period.The main factor influencing the decision to go to the festival and the choice of events are costs (68%). At the top of the list are the selection of performers (50%), atmosphere (40%), weather conditions or the season in which the event takes place (35%) and the duration and date of the event (19%). At festivals, Croats spend the most on drinks (90%), food (75%), transport to the location (54%), souvenirs (33%), accommodation (29%) and cigarettes (24%).As many as 43% of festival visitors said that they do not need accommodation, while those who take it usually choose apartments (26%), then hotels (20%), followed by hostels (13%), camps (11%) and other options. (11%). After the end of the festival, slightly more than a third of the respondents (36%) remain at the location. This share is slightly higher among young people (45%) and those with a monthly income of more than 9.000 kuna (almost 50%). Those who continue their stay, mostly stay at the location for another day or two (74% of them).An interesting fact is that only 17% of respondents spend over 1.000 kuna per festival, not including tickets, and consumption, of course, depends on individual preferences, but also the capabilities of visitors. Consumers from Zagreb and the surrounding area (1.000%), highly educated (20%), men (21%) and those with a monthly income of over HRK 22 (12.000%) have spending to a greater extent than HRK 44 per festival. As the most common method of payment, as many as 93% of respondents state cash, while cards are the primary means of payment for respondents with incomes above HRK 9.000.Photo: Zagreb Light FestivalWe usually visit festivals with a partner or friendsAlmost two thirds of respondents (62%) go to festivals with a partner, slightly less than half (45%) with a small group of friends and approximately one in five (21%) with family. Going to the festival with a partner is more common among those between 40 and 49 years of age (71%), and with friends among young people between 18 and 29 years of age (64%). Respondents with high incomes and those from Istria, Primorje and Gorski Kotar usually travel alone.”Festivals are a pledge to achieve even better tourist results. That is why we have included the Dubrovnik Summer Festival, ULTRA Europe, Pula Film Festival, Šibenik’s Changer and Špancirfest in our Priceless Croatia platform, so that citizens and tourists can experience experiences inaccessible to others at www.priceless.com.”Said Gea Kariž, Marketing Director at Mastercard for Croatia.The global digital platform Priceless Cities offers tourist experiences to Mastercard card users in a total of 42 destinations, thus promoting the tourist offer of numerous world and now Croatian destinations among travelers from 87 countries around the world.

Arena Hospitality Group presented successful business results in 2018

admin No Comments

first_imgPhoto: arenahotels.com The Pula hotel group Arena Hospitality Group is known as one of the most dynamic in Central and Eastern Europe. The group has over 10.000 accommodation units at 26 locations in three countries with over 1.000 employees. However, although they are present on the German and Hungarian markets, hotels in Croatia generate the highest revenues. The group’s strategy in 2018 was to capitalize on the growth potential in Central and Eastern Europe through additional goals such as renewing existing capacities, capitalizing synergies with Germany, expanding through acquisitions and other business models, and continuously improving the guest experience. The group’s total revenue increased by 5,6 percent compared to 2017 with growth in all segments – hotels, resorts and campsites. The increase in revenue had a positive impact of HRK 41 million. In Croatia, total revenues in 2018 increased by 5 percent to HRK 503,8 million. Of that, accommodation revenue rose 5,8 percent and available room revenue (RevPAR) by 3,1 percent. Also, the average price of accommodation increased by 3,1 percent. But revenue growth has been mitigated by increased pressure on operating costs such as increased labor costs, booking fees, and waste management and cleaning services costs. In 2018, the Group raised a total of HRK 788 million through a public offering, of which it is investing an average of 3 times more than before, or approximately HRK 447 million. Of the investments, last year investments were made in Arena One 99 Glamping, and in the next three years investments are planned in Arena Kažela camp, Verudela Beach tourist resort, Art’otel berlin kudamm and Hotel Brioni and expansion into new markets. Hotel Brioni As key events, Arena Hospitality Group cites the transformation of the existing camp into a glamping destination, the transfer of stock trading from the regular market to the Zagreb Stock Exchange, the continuous growth of Park Plaza Nürnberg hotel which achieved EBITDA (profit before interest, taxes and depreciation) of 41,5 percent and investment in sports facilities in 2017 at the Park Plaza Belvedere Medulin Hotel.

An important role in this is taken over by the current CNTB Head Office, which is becoming practically a marketing agency, something like “Visit Britain”, a German tourist organization, etc. “said Cappelli.

Also, 21 activities are exempt from paying that membership fee, while some new activities have been introduced, such as banks. “More will be encouraged through the fund for underdeveloped areas and the continent, for which 9 percent will be allocated compared to the previous 7,5 percent, and of these funds will be allocated to regional tourist boards that earn less than HRK 500 thousand of revenue per year, as a difference up to the amount of HRK 500 thousand. However, after the expiration of five years, the funds will be distributed to tourist boards and regional and local in these areas through a public tender”, Explained Cappelli, adding that he wants to equalize everything so that they can ‘start’ equally.The Law on Tourist Tax stipulates that in the future the amount will no longer be determined by a Government decree, but will be determined by county assemblies, and the Minister will prescribe only minimum and maximum amounts, for example from 10 to 15.”We have introduced a 2 percent novelty in both membership fees and tourist fees for projects and programs of joint tourist boards, and an important thing about the fee is the introduction of charging options for cruisers in maritime and inland waterway transport, but the decision is left to city councils , if they want they can importSaid Cappelli.

first_imgŠibenik was the first city to mint its own money during the Venetian period. As determined by the decree on minting, on one side of the coin was the figure of St. Mark, the patron saint of Venice, and on the other hand the figure of St. Mihovil, patron saint of the city of Šibenik. Immediately after Šibenik, Split, Zadar, Trogir and Hvar began to forge their bagatine. The project was created in cooperation between the School of Tourism and Hospitality and the Technical School, which is funded by the Ministry of Tourism through a program of promotion and strengthening the competence of professional professions for tourism. The idea was to design the Šibenik bagatin as a delicacy and as a souvenir, which succeeded in the form of chocolate coins.

Increased number of hunters in 2018

first_imgAccording to the Central Bureau of Statistics (CBS), the total number of hunters in 2018 increased by 7,1%, the number of members by 6,2%, while the number of trainees and future hunters increased by 43,3% compared to 2017. Hunting tourism, as a specific form of tourism, is an important segment in the overall tourist offer of Croatia, with special emphasis on the offer of the continental part, and Croatia has a long hunting tradition, enthusiastic hunters, and the interest of foreign hunters for Croatian hunting destinations is very high. Unfortunately, we have not yet been able to promote and complete the entire tourism product enough when we talk about hunting tourism. Source: CBS You can read the new Hunting Act HERE This year, a new Hunting Act was passed The newly proposed legal solutions create preconditions for the introduction of more order in hunting. Starting from better management of hunting grounds, through breeding, protection and trade of game through the use of hunting weapons, to regulating the relationship between hunting licensees and hunting rights providers. Furthermore, the new law establishes the preconditions for stronger development of hunting tourism, revival of hunting customs and traditions, and more effective involvement of hunters and their associations in the development and improvement of hunting as a significant economic branch of the Republic of Croatia. Although a tourist hunter spends two to three times more than an ordinary tourist, foreign hunters in Croatia spend only 30 percent on tourist services and facilities, while 70 percent are set aside for shooting game. Abroad, the ratio is reversed: 70 percent of the tourist hunter’s consumption is related to accommodation, catering and non-board services.center_img RELATED NEWS: The shooting of feathered game has doubled With almost 238 thousand heads shot, the shooting of other feathered game in hunting 2018 is higher by 116,4% compared to 2017.

Mobile banking has become the most common way to pay bills, it is time to digitize our tourism

admin No Comments

first_imgMost mobile payment services are used by an average of 4 to 6% more users than last year. The only exception is payment via SMS, which is used by 4% fewer users compared to the last survey.  Opportunity for tourism? Yes, absolutely. What are we waiting for? We are still struggling with a good part of restaurants on the Adriatic that only accept cash, let alone have implemented mobile payments. And it is not only restaurants, but also cafes, bakeries, deck chairs for rent, etc.… and all other basic and additional services in the destination. How important and what digitalization means in the tourism sector is also shown by yesterday’s news, how Spanish destinations are introducing the reservation of a place on the beach via a mobile application. A significant majority of respondents (90%) use cards at least occasionally when shopping online, which is the same as in November 2019. However, the frequency of using cards when shopping online decreased by 7% on a monthly basis. In addition, the share of those who use cards when buying online only once or twice in three months (7%) also increased slightly. Debit cards (32%) proved to be the most common method of payment, followed by credit cards (34%) and PayPal (21%).  We are satisfied with the level of digitalization in Croatia The results showed that almost three-quarters (71%) of cardholders check their account balance and card charges via mobile phone. Almost the same number (67%) use SMS payments, while 59% use mobile banking. To a lesser extent, card users use payment through the services of teleoperators (26%) and m-wallet (9%).  “For many years, the MasterIndex research has provided us with the opportunity to get to know the habits of card users better, and it certainly has added value in this period, which deviates from our usual everyday life and in which we regularly seek answers to many questions. In Croatia, almost all of us still use cards, but although the share of credit card users is growing somewhat, debit cards are still used significantly more. We are also glad to see that the number of users who pay contactlessly is growing, because this is the safest way to pay and our recommendation during the corona crisis, but also after”, Pointed out Helena Šekerija from Mastercard.  Furthermore, approximately 70% of respondents have an interest in using online mobile payments, which is practically at the same level as in the previous wave of research from November 2019. Furthermore, most banking users are interested in certain mobile payment methods – 59% for payment by connecting the mobile phone to the POS terminal, and 63% for online card payment via the mobile application.  Contactless payment is becoming more and more popular, so as many as nine out of ten of us have and use a contactless card, while a year ago that ratio was eight out of ten. In addition, as many as 60% of cardholders pay contactlessly at least three to five times a week, an increase of 5% over last year. The number of those who pay contactlessly every day is also slightly increasing (+ 2%) and now their share is 23%. Contactless is mostly paid in supermarkets and shopping malls (71%), followed by local shops (17%). Although more and more people pay non-contact, respondents would like such payment to be enabled to an even greater extent, primarily in supermarkets and shops (36%), restaurants and cafes (16%) and public transport (14%).  Most of us are satisfied with the level of digitalization in the country, almost all of us use smartphones and cards, and we are more and more inclined to new payment methods such as mobile and contactless, the results of regular MasterIndex research which was conducted for Mastercard by the Improve agency.  In addition to the aforementioned data, it is interesting that all types of cards are used on average slightly more among respondents older than 40 years (99%), those with a monthly income of more than HRK 5.500 and among the male population. The results also showed that users have an average of three (2,8) cards, which is the same as last year.  Cover photo: Pixabay.com The MasterIndex online survey on the habits of using financial services in Croatia and attitudes towards payment cards was conducted in April 2020 for Mastercard by the market research agency Improve, on a sample of 1.046 users of banking services in Croatia aged 18 to 55.  Furthermore, the digital devices most respondents use are smartphones (95%), laptops (83%), personal computers (55%) and smart TVs (54%). Apart from the fact that the largest number of respondents own it and spend an average of five (4,8) hours a day on it, a mobile phone is also a means that respondents would use for payment cards to the greatest extent (71%). To a much lesser extent, they emphasize ID cards or passports (17%) and biometrics (14%) and smart watches (14%). PIN is still the preferred (50%) method of payment authorization, and finger scanning (34%) is also highly preferred. The research also confirmed that the coronavirus pandemic has reduced the number of those planning a holiday in Croatia, but also the more frequent online purchase of food, software and gaming products and the preference for contactless payment as the healthiest. We use mobile payment services more than last year The above-average share of card users is in Zagreb and its surroundings (98%), and the lowest in Lika and in Kordun and Banovina (91%).  But now is the opportunity to accelerate development and catch up with all digital trends, in fact, to set global trends ourselves. But in order to be able to plan, we need to know what the current situation is, what are the habits and expectations of consumers in Croatia, when we talk about digital payment. Almost all of us use payment cards Cards are used for various purposes. Almost half (48%) of cardholders withdraw cash from ATMs once or twice a month, over a third (35%) the same number of times a week, while only a few do so more often. On the other hand, cards are used much more regularly to pay at points of sale. Over a quarter (27%) of users use them for this purpose every day. More than a third (35%) do this three to five times a week, and about a quarter (22%) once to twice a week. Research has shown another interesting fact, and that is that internet banking is no longer the most common way to pay bills – it is now mobile banking with 51% of users compared to 42% of e-banking users.  Growth of mobile banking The crisis caused by the epidemic, among other things, has shown that it is high time for digitalization, and in the recovery period the smart state will embrace digitalization in the true sense. Also, digitalization will be a term that will be most often used in the tourism sector, and in Croatia, in my personal opinion, we are lagging behind digital trends. Contactless payment is viewed more and more positively – as many as 82% of card users consider it really fast and easy, and 61% definitely intend to use it more often in the future. In addition, this method of payment is considered the safest when it comes to health and hygiene. As many as 71% of cardholders firmly believe that contactless payment is the healthiest, and another 20% have a similar opinion. In a period when great attention is paid to the cleanliness of sales areas and hand hygiene, such a dominant attitude on this issue may not be a big surprise, but it is certainly a clear indicator of consumer preferences. As many as 85% of respondents are satisfied with the level of digitalization in the country, which is an increase of 3% compared to November 2019 and the continuation of this positive trend. However, a significant number of respondents still want to see more innovation and digital services in health (70%), public administration (54%), education (50%) and the judiciary (27%). When it comes to personal use of digital services, in the first place is the mobile phone with the Internet and online chat (89%), followed by online shopping (81%), e-mail (80%) and social networks (79%) and Internet search engines (77 %). These services are also most used on a daily basis, with the exception of online shopping which most respondents make on a monthly basis.  But someone has to lead the development strategy of digitalization of our tourism, both from the national narrative and from the destination. And that is where we unfortunately fall. 9 out of 10 pay us contactless, we are increasingly using mobile payment The increase in the use of mobile banking for this purpose is as much as 12% compared to last year, and the share (16%) of those who pay their bills exclusively in physical branches is still not negligible. The main obstacle to paying bills online is the habit of paying in cash (50%). Most of us use online shopping cards and m-banking to pay bills As many as 9 out of 10 pay us contactlesslylast_img read more

Five-star Glamping Village opened in Terme Tuhelj. An investment worth three million euros

admin No Comments

first_imgAfter last year’s opening of Camp Vita, the first five-star camp in continental Croatia, Terme Tuhelj opened the luxurious five-star Glamping Village in the heart of Zagorje, thus laying excellent foundations for additional growth and development of continental tourism.  However, in this story from Hrvatsko Zagorje, it is precisely the local trump card that makes the difference. Namely, each house bears the name of a famous Zagorje locality, as well as recommendations for sights that are worth visiting in Krapina-Zagorje County, and in Glamping Village a local breakfast is served in a basket. Breakfast will be prepared according to the wishes of the guest, who will receive their basket full of local and freshly grown ingredients every morning in their cottage. All the facilities of the camp, but also the attractions in Terme Tuhelj – from the Sauna World, through the rich wellness offer to the Water Planet with swimming pools and adrenaline slides – are available to the guests of Glamping Village. The investment, worth three million euros, was realized in cooperation with the Austrian partner Gebetsroiter, a company with a forty-year tradition in creating camping destinations of the highest quality. “We have clear goals, vision and strategy, which is confirmed by the new glamping resort, which will soon, I am convinced, be full of guests. We know that we are on the right track, last year we generated ten million euros in revenue and 136 thousand overnight stays, almost a third in Krapina-Zagorje County. By continuously investing from year to year, we raise the bar of quality and respond to the demands of the tourism market, we look positively to the future in these uncertain times that have slowed us down, but have not stopped us from realizing our plans.”, Said Vasja Čretnik, director of Terme Tuhelj at the grand opening of the luxury Glamping Village in Terme Tuhelj.  In this way, Terme Tuhelj combines modern luxury with the local offer, and in cooperation with the Tourist Board of Krapina-Zagorje County, they present themselves to guests as good hosts, who take care of every detail. center_img Glamping Village offers new five-star content, the only one of its kind in continental Croatia, and the offer consists of 36 modern mobile units, a wellness center, a whirlpool, a sauna and a massage room.  Local breakfast in the basket for those who know the difference The modern glamping resort Terme Tuhelj is a great upgrade to Camp Vita, the first five-star camp in continental Croatia, opened last summer.  Glamorous camping, in recent years, is a global trend and the perfect answer to the growing need of people to return to nature, which is currently the best and safest way to relax.last_img read more
