As Poslovni Dnevnik/Ivan Tominac writes, OPG Hazic in Sveti Martin na Muri in Medjimurje is the first to be known as a wine park in all of the Republic of Croatia.

Presented last weekend, it offers twelve pitches for campers and eight wooden mobile homes that will be available as of early July this year, and is built to the highest environmental standards with a category of four ”suns”.

The camp was built from the OPG Hazic’s own family investments and the support of EU funds. Since back in 2015, they have applied for six projects worth as much as 5 million kuna, and the venture of the wine camp in beautiful Medjimurje has been financed with a sum of 1.5 million kuna.

Its full value exceeds that amount, the construction of the camp is worth 3.5 million kuna, and the investments will offer accommodation to tourists who want to enjoy nature, wines, sparkling wines, juices and other apple products from OPG Hazic and the rich tourist offer of Medjimurje in general.

“We’ve invested a lot of effort and energy into our wine camp. I’m happy that we succeeded. Although we have to set up the mobile homes by the end of June, the first campers have already arrived,” said owner Tatjana Hazic who has been running the farm with her sister Valentina for many years now.

When on holiday in the camp, days can be spent cycling, enjoying the wellness services of Terme Sveti Martin, getting better acquainted with local cultural sights, enjoying adventure activities and enjoying local gastronomic delights.

Emphasis is also being placed on what’s known as experience tourism, meaning that tourists will have the opportunity to participate in the usual daily activities which are key to Medjimurje’s local economy. In this way, they will be able to pick the fruits themselves, which the owners of OPG Hazic will pack and prepare appropriately so that they can take them with them.

“The OPG Hazic story represents a very successful tourist story of rural Croatia, which provides the best of Medjimurje through rural tourism. Money withdrawn from EU funds certainly helped them out in their development, but the immeasurable contribution of this valuable family as a whole mustn’t be neglected, nor should the fact that they invested their own funds in improving the quality of their own products and their tourist offer,” said Aleksandra Kuratko Pani, head of the Croatian Rural Tourism Association, of which OPG Hazic has been a member since 2020.
