The new Dugopolje Visitor Center is the first of projects the County can look forward to said Split-Dalmatia County. The leader and initiator of the project are Split-Dalmatia County, and the value of the project, in the professional and tourism sense, is already monitored and recognized by the Ministry of Tourism. The Ministry has previously allowed the maximum initial resources in several national tenders, ensuring that the demanding work on the construction is done on the Visitor Center promptly.

Precisely, the project realizes the building and the permanent display of the Visitor Center, which will guide tourists to different natural heritage sites in Split-Dalmatia County through multimedia, applications, and through even more educational paths and schools in nature designed in cooperation with a large number of partners and associates. Thus, the whole tourist offer and sights of Split-Dalmatia County will be presented at a single place.
