As Poslovni Dnevnik/Josipa Ban writes, a contract was recently signed between the huge Croatian tourism company Valamar and the construction company Kamgrad on the continuation of the construction of the Poreč Pical project. The works surrounding this resort are otherwise part of the largest single investment in Croatian tourism, worth 139 million euros. Hotel Pical will be a 5* complex and will be open all year round.

“Hotel Pical used to be one of the best hotels on the entire Croatian Adriatic. I’m proud to say that we’re continuing with this investment, which will bring high-quality year-round tourism to Poreč, provide new quality jobs and once again place Poreč and Istria among the leading European tourist destinations.” said Željko Kukurin, president of the Valamar Management Board.
