Krka National Park participating in tourism fairs

Every year, Krka National Park participates in tourism fairs to present new projects and to acquaint fair visitors with the natural beauty and cultural and historical heritage of the park.

The international presentation of Krka National Park has for years begun each year at the fair Borsa Mediterranea del Turismo Archeologico in Paestuma, Italy. The objective of this leading archaeology and tourism fair is to promote the commercial use of archaeological destinations. Krka presents its valuable archaeological sites, particularly the Roman military camp Burnum, as part of the cultural and historical heritage open to visitors, and as such is presented through numerous publications and education for children.

The natural, cultural and historical heritage is presented by the staff of Krka National Park at a modernly equipped stand, with the screening of films, 3D glasses, numerous info brochures and tastings of traditional desserts and liqueurs from this region. At the tourism fair Ferien-Messe Wien in Vienna, visitors were able to learn about the visit of Emperor Franz Joseph I and Empress Elizabeth to Skradinski Buk and the Manojlovac waterfall: there is a plaque commemorating the visit at the site where the Emperor admired Manojlovac falls.

Active green tourism and an active outdoor vacation were the topics of this year's Natour Alpe-Adria fair in Ljubljana, where the staff of Krka National Park presented 29 km of walking and 470 km of cycling trails that are currently under preparation. In February, the park was presented at two fairs: Holiday World in Prague and BIT Milano. These are events with a long-standing tradition and strong reputation in the world of tourism and travel, bringing together experts and the target public from those areas.

The staff of the Public Institute of Krka National Park, in cooperation with the Tourist Board of Šibenik-Knin County participated at fairs in the Benelux region, i.e. in Ghent in Belgium and Utrecht in The Netherlands. Both fairs focus on an active vacation, particularly cycling and walking. Visitors expressed great interest in taking a vacation in nature, and accommodations in quiet, rural areas, with the possibility of various options of outdoor activities. This is directly in line with the projects that Krka National Park is currently implementing, which emphasize sustainable development, cycling tourism, and stimulating the local population and the local economy.

In March, the park was presented at the largest tourism fair in Bavaria, f.re.e. in München, and at the ITB fair in Berlin, in cooperation with the Tourist Board of Šibenik-Knin County. The county was also a partner at the fair Salon Mondial du Tourisme in Paris. There, more than 400 exhibitors presented their programmes, which were divided into six thematic units: different travel, accommodations, family travel, culture and heritage, books and publications, and unforgettable travel.

This year, the national parks and nature parks were presented on the “home field”, at this year's fair Place2Go in Zagreb, at the interactive stand of the Parks of Croatia, to better acquaint fair visitors with the most recognisable and most visited national protected areas, which are also the main pillars of preserving nature and biodiversity, the smart use and sustainable development of our precious natural resources, and the driver of economic development in the local areas.

Representatives of Krka National Park will also present the park at the B-Travel fair in Barcelona in April, and at the tourism fair in Verona in September.
