As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, in the tourist zone of the Plitvice Lakes National Park, the new Plitvice Mall has been opened to the very many visitors and locals of the Rakovica Municipality, who just before Christmas got a brand new, very attractive shopping centre spanning almost 4,000 square metres of retail space. According to the statement, the construction of Plitvice Mall began back in May 2021.
The new Plitvice Mall shopping facility is located in an area that is visited by several million tourists during the summer months, which includes guests of the famous National Park which attracts people from all over the world, all of whom are flocking to see its stunning waterfalls and nature.
The investor’s representative, Pasko Dodic, pointed out that the local region and its residents have been given not only the opportunity to create new jobs and as such boost the local economy, but also a new place of purchase that has not existed in this particular region of Croatia so far.
During the opening of the new Plitvice Mall, the mayor of Rakovica, Mihovil Bicanic, pointed out that the shopping centre will open more than 90 jobs for locals.
“Comparing things in terms of their percentages, the number of employed inhabitants of the municipality of Rakovica at the new Plitvice Mall would be identical to 34,000 employees in the City of Zagreb, and only in one single location. This project will keep young people and families in our area,” added Bicanic.
