The city of Drniš has been nominated for the “Best of Europe” tourist award at the ITB Berlin, reports Dalmacija Danas on March 6, 2019.

The prestigious awards for sustainable destinations will be awarded at the world’s leading travel trade show on Wednesday, March 6, 2019. A jury evaluated 100 destinations in 12 organizations to identify the best success stories. In the end, 44 destinations were shortlisted, including Drniš, which were nominated in ten categories.

Drniš has been nominated in the “Best of Europe” subcategory “Best of Planets”, which is a category that awards the “greenest” destinations of each continent, or destinations that show innovation and responsibility in the sustainable development of tourism and protecting the environment in different parts of the world. The Lyngenfiord region, Norway, Portugal, and Bled, Slovenia are also nominated in this category. 

This is a unique event dedicated exclusively to recognizing innovations and good practices in the tourism management of destinations – islands, cities, regions and entire countries. The award recognizes  ”green destinations” as destinations that are desirable for travel and media, Radio Drniš reports. 

Representatives of the City of Drniš are also in Berlin, headed by the deputy mayor Tomislav Dželalija and Ivan Sučić, head of the administrative department for the economy, finance and social affairs. Support for this event will be given to Drniš by the Ambassador of the Republic of Croatia in Berlin, Goran Grlić Radman.

“With this nomination, it has once again been confirmed that the whole of the region has a huge tourism and development potential, which, with the responsible and sustainable management of cultural and natural heritage, and other resources, becomes a recognized and desirable destination in Europe, but also in the world,” concluded the City of Drniš. 

The delegation of the City of Drniš also met with the Minister of Tourism, Gari Cappelli and the State Secretary of Tourism Tonči Glavina at the HTZ booth at ITB Berlin. During the meeting, the Minister was introduced to the projects implemented by Drniš in order to improve the tourist offer and extend the tourist season.
