A joint approach to strengthening the county offer

On Tuesday 16 February, a meeting was held in the premises of the Public Institute of Krka National Park on agreements to offer additional services for guests visiting the national park, and other content in the city of Šibenik and the county, particularly in the preseason. This meeting was organized by the Šibenik County Chamber of Economy (HGK) at the initiative of representatives of charter companies in Šibenik-Knin County and Paško Klisović, head of the charter group.

The meeting was also attended by Nella Slavica, director of the Public Institute of Krka National Park, Šime Ježina, director of the Public Institute of Kornati National Park, Dino Karađole, director of the Šibenik Tourist Board, charter representatives Paško Klisović and Živko Šikić, and Davor Antica, senior associate of the Šibenik County HGK.

Paško Klisović mentioned the initiative that was proposed last year but was not actualised due to the COVID-19 epidemic. “This initiative involves offering additional content for charter guests to visit these national parks, and the content offered by the City of Šibenik and by Šibenik-Knin County. Considering the current epidemiological situation, there are already many groups of guests with reservations for the Easter break, and so the expectations for this year’s preseason are optimistic,” said Klisović.

“Guests visiting Šibenik are able to visit cultural institutions and sights through the Šibenik card project, which increases the experience of the destination while offering substantial discounts,” stressed Dino Karađole. In addition to content in the City of Šibenik, Šibenik-Knin County also offers a wide range of cultural sights and tourist attractions, including two national parks.

“Ticket prices for guests visiting Krka National Park in the winter period are substantially cheaper, with adult tickets available at just 30 kuna,” said Nella Slavica, while Šime Ježina added that the “Tickets for Kornati are discounted at 50 to 60% of the summer prices”. Representatives of the charter companies stressed that charter guests are the “safest” of all guests at this time, given the current epidemiological situation.

The joint conclusion of the meeting was an agreement of specific discounts for charter guests, particularly in the preseason, and creating a means of presentation of these benefits as part of a package to motivate charter guests to stay longer, either before or after sailing, and visit some of the many sights in the city and county. It is necessary to organise a joint approach on the market, with discounts for group visits to specific destination, and consider how guests visiting any website related to tourism in Šibenik-Knin County can obtain information on all current offers and benefits.
