ZAGREB, May 14, 2020 – About 60 bar and restaurant owners and hoteliers in Opatija started a campaign called “19 Days of Defiance,” and until June 1 they will offer their guests discounts and in a symbolic way show defiance against the situation caused by the coronavirus pandemic and hope that a better period would come.
“Most bar and restaurant owners in Opatija, all hotels open in May and the Thalasso Wellness Centre will have special offers and discounts for their guests until June 1, and through the symbolism of number 19 they will express their defiance against the situation caused by the pandemic, as well as hope that a better period will come,” the Opatija Tourist Board said in a press release.
As they said, bar and restaurant owners and hoteliers in Opatija had decided to mark the end of a two-month period of closed facilities and distance from guests with the “19 Days of Defiance” campaign.
“For the next 19 days, by June 1, most bars and restaurants in Opatija will have special offers for their guests, adjusted to the establishment’s offer and type – ranging from discounts on some services to a general discount of a symbolic ‘COVID’ 19 percent.”
The Opatija Tourist Board underscored that Opatija’s bar and restaurant owners had been proactive and creative and that they had, in cooperation with the tourist Board, encouraged other tourist facilities to join the action.
They also underscore that other hoteliers, which have not reopened in May or taken part in the programme, will open for business at the beginning of June.
