Andrej Plenković sings the Pearl of the Adriatic’s praises.

While Dubrovnik undoubtedly has its issues, it remains a shining example for the rest of the country when it comes to tourism and everything related to it. Croatia’s southernmost destination long-time and tourist Mecca earns the praise of the Croatian PM.

As DuList writes on the 5th of December, 2017, key projects for the development of Dubrovnik-Neretva County, primarily better traffic links between the border crossing points, as well as the much talked about Peljesac Bridge, were the main theme of the meeting between Dubrovnik-Neretva County’s prefect, Nikola Dobroslavić, Dubrovnik’s popular mayor Mato Franković and various others held by Prime Minister Andrej Plenković.

”We’ve spoken about road directions that would ease the crowds during the summer months, whether it’s a road through Peljesac for Orebic or from Dubrovnik to the south to the airport. We’ve got no alternative directions, so the Ministry will go through the transport studies to find the right solution that would make it easier for the during the summer season. Also, we’ve talked with the mayors of the island municipalities and cities about better connections for the islands with the mainland,” the prime minister stated.

He added that last season was by far the best for Croatia to date, not only in respect to the entire country but for Dubrovnik-Neretva County and of course, the City of Dubrovnik, which has excelled beyond all expectations in 2017.

”The results are already visible. This is the city where tourism is of the highest quality and can be an example to others to further develop the concept of congress tourism that strengthens the destination and prolongs the season, which is one of the basic tasks of our sustainable tourism strategy,” said Plenković.

“The pace of fiscal decentralisation is not only declarative, but very concrete,” he added.
