The City of Sinj was a sponsor of the Split Wedding Fair for the first time this year, which showed their initiative to promote the city as a romantic destination for wedding ceremonies, reports HRTurizam on February 9, 2019. 

The idea of the Split Wedding Fair is the development of a so-called “wedding destination”, that is, a form of tourism that is evolving rapidly. With that in mind, the City of Sinj hopes to push itself as an ideal destination for couples to choose for their big day. 

This form of tourism would also promote small crafts and businesses whose goal is to strengthen their competitiveness in comparison to other cities in Dalmatia, and transform Sinj into an elegant destination for numerous weddings, explained the City on their official website. They even revealed a slogan: “Say yes in the City of Sinj!”

Sinj offers a beautiful park and promenade, the natural beauty of the Cetina, a luxury hotel, top restaurants, street weddings, numerous wedding halls, beauty salons, flower shops, jewelry, and catering, as well as stunning and romantic city views.

“We came up with the idea of creating a project that would bring together all the small crafts and companies involved in wedding themes and present them through online and offline channels to develop entrepreneurship in the city of Sinj. Thanks to many natural, cultural, historical and traditional riches, the entire city has the potential to become a stage for weddings,” said Marija Knežević Gusić, project author and owner of Angelus Communications, Public Relations and Marketing Agencies. 

“The emphasis is on foreign guests, but we must not ignore the local ones as well. Sinj is unique because on one street there are five wedding salons and halls, but they need to be raised to a higher level to attract foreign guests.”

In addition to traditional weddings in churches, Sinj offers alternative and adventurous weddings. 

“Peruća Lake, the Cetina River, and the surrounding area are ideal places for adventurous weddings that include activities such as horseback riding and quads,” says Knežević Gusić. 

As for accommodations, a new five star hotel is being built in the center of Sinj within the historical palace. 

“There are also private luxury villas with larger capacities, and smaller family hotels. We do not currently have the capacity for large weddings, but that is why we are ideal for more intimate weddings with around thirty guests. As far as further promotion of this form of tourism is concerned, the plan is to cooperate with local and foreign agencies for wedding planning and tourist agencies that bring guests. We also plan to create a website where we will present the entire offer,” explains Knežević Gusić.

“I think this is a big step forward in the development of this part of Croatia because we think we have the potential and an excellent offer for various types of weddings. This has been recognized by the City of Sinj and the Tourist Board of Sinj, and we are moving forward with them in this project,” concluded Gusić.
