September 3, 2018 – On September 1 and 2, the Croatian Tourist Board and the Tourist Board of Split-Dalmatia County, in cooperation with local tourist communities, welcomed the RTV Slovenia TV channel to Inland Dalmatia. 

Namely, due to the increased interest of Slovenian tourists in Split-Dalmatia County, for the purpose of better informing them, the four-day program was enjoyed by Mojica Mavec, journalist and editor of RTV Slovenia with cameraman Jan Batiljevic. They were accompanied by Metka Bradetić, director of HTZ’s representative office in Slovenia.
