Total Croatia News

Šibenik will receive 1 million kuna for a new beach 

New Minister of tourism Anto Kliman announced on February 29, 2016, which infrastructural projects will receive money from the ministry. It seems that the focus of this year’s incentives are new cycling paths and beaches, and in this round of co-financing tender, which was published in autumn last year, the ministry will give out 17 million kunas for 34 projects across Croatia. Ministry will co-finance up to 80% of justifiable costs for the selected projects.

Another tender is still active; one for the allocation of funds for visitor’s centres and that decision will be made after the national budget announced.

Most of the projects that applied for the co-financing measure, 18 of them, are beach refurbishment projects and the funds were requested either for project documentation or implementation of accepted projects. Largest individual incentive, 1 million kunas, will go to the city of Šibenik for the refurbishment of Rezalište beach in Brodarica. This particular project is ready to go and it should be completed by the summer.

Funds for beaches were received by Istrian county for their beach project Bolnica I, Rogoznica for their planned beach in Lozica bay, Senj for a new beach and boardwalk, beach Rivarela in Novigrad, Bol for their new beach for the disabled and Tkon while Vodnjan received 500 000 kunas for their beach Peroj. Poreč received a total of 800 000 kuna for two new beaches.

Money was allocated for other projects too, so Vodice will receive 1 million kunas for the reconstruction of their Punta Blata coastal belt, and this particular project includes a new beach, boardwalk and a harbor.  In Krk allocated funds will be used for the construction of the first open air gym on Dražice beach, Kopački Rit will get the funds to start the construction of a tourist harbor while all the funds allocated in the mainland will mostly be used for the development of new cycling routes and other infrastructural projects needed for the development of cycling tourism.

Vukovar received 264 000 kunas from the fund for a new cycling route from Luka to the Vuka estuary, municipality of Antunovac was allocated 600 000 kunas for their planned Ivanovac cycling route, Varaždin will use their 400 000 kunas to complete a new cycling route, info stand and garage for bicycles while Metković will receive 900 000 kunas for their Neretva cycling route.

Split-Dalmatia County and Šibenik will both receive funds to develop their innovative cycling projects while Otočac will receive 800 000 kunas for a new campsite considering that the number of camping tourists in the area is increasing each year and they need 52 new pitches as well as a new access road, ramps, sanitary units and reception to meet this growing demand.

Another interesting project in the mainland that received funding is the Inspirit Fantasy Park in Pazin. Dubrovnik will receive 400 000 kunas to help with the construction of a congress centre.
