The first such fence was erected in Krapina-Zagorje County, in Zelenjak, near the monument to the Croatian anthem. The Krapina-Zagorje County has already donated the same fence to the City of Vukovar, and after Pula, it will donate it to the City of Rijeka in August this year, also during the 100% ZAGORSKO event.All praise for Krapina-Zagorje County and the Tourist Board of Krapina-Zagorje County who think outside the box, do not whine and wait, but are proactive and try in various ways to reach the target group, especially in continental tourism where we do not have sun and sea as a motive for arrival and it is much harder to generate tourist arrivals.One of the ways is certainly this one, through the excellent event 100 Zagorsko which promotes Zagorje as an interesting and rich tourist destination.Related news:ZAGORJE GOT ITS TOURIST CARD – ZAGORJE CARDINNOVATIVE TOURIST ATTRACTION INSTALLED IN UMAG – MUSIC FENCElast_img read more
