Franković to Cappelli: ”Protect the Dignity of Tourist Guides”

Lauren Simmonds

Dubrovnik Mayor Mato Franković comes out in support of tourist guides in the face of proposed new changes.

As Dubrovacki Dnevnik reports on the 27th of July, 2017, Dubrovnik’s new Mayor penned a letter to the Minister of Tourism, Gari Cappelli, in which he brought up the topic of the proposed changes to the Tourism Services Act, giving special emphasis to potential alterations to the lives and work of tourist guides.

Franković states that the City of Dubrovnik supports the professional associations of Dubrovnik tourist guides. He requests that the Tourism Minister protects the dignity of professionals in the field, stressing that Dubrovnik is a UNESCO protected entity, and that it, as well as other UNESCO sites in Croatia, naturally deserves a high level of interpretation when it comes to its history, its cultures and its traditions.

This, in a long line of similar ”pro Dubrovnik” actions has seen the charismatic young Franković soar in popularity among residents of the Pearl of the Adriatic. So far, Franković has stuck to his pre-election promises without faltering, one of the most important commitments being the construction of a proper animal shelter for Dubrovnik’s many abandoned furry, scaled and feathered residents, which he has claimed will be completed in a period of just one year.

After the reign of Vlahušić, brighter horizons seem to await Dubrovnik under the energetic Franković, who clearly has the city and the wellbeing of its people firmly at the forefront of his mind.
