HGK – Split County Chamber became part of the European network of UNESCO protected lesser-known sites Mirabilia

first_imgIf tourists want to explore UNESCO sites in Croatia, it is difficult to find a better base for it than Split. Within a two-hour drive, or ferry ride, as many as six UNESCO sites are easily accessible. Start from Split and Diocletian’s Palace, and then “jump” to Šibenik and the local Cathedral of St. James. On the way back, stop at the medieval jewel of Trogir. Tourists can spend a day on the island of Hvar and visit Starogradsko polje. Just an hour’s drive into the interior of Dalmatia is one of the medieval cemeteries with stećak tombstones. Not too far away in BiH is the old town of Mostar. Also, on day trips it is possible to see two more UNESCO sites, Dubrovnik and Plitvice Lakes National Park. The only site that is somewhat harder to reach is the Euphrasian Basilica in Porec. Split as an ideal central point of research of UNESCO sites in Croatia There is a great potential of this platform that offers a number of opportunities for the development of new cultural and tourist routes and programs, which are interesting to tourists throughout the year, which ultimately strengthens tourism throughout Europe. UNESCO also has its own list of intangible world heritage, and Split is once again a great base for tourists to get to know some of them: Mediterranean food, traditional klapa singing, silent wheel from the Dalmatian hinterland, ojkanje, Sinjska alka, procession for the cross on the island of Hvar, and lace made of the leaves of agave, also on Hvar. HGK – Split County Chamber at the Mirabilia network is also part of the working group for cooperation with the governing bodies of UNESCO protected areas, which carries out a series of activities to connect with UNESCO governing bodies and raise awareness on sustainable tourism in the destination.  In addition to the Split Chamber, chambers from France, Spain, Greece, Bulgaria and Serbia have also expressed interest in joining the network, and this initiative has now been extended to more than 50 chambers from Spain to Bulgaria. Mirabilia promotes the territories and routes of UNESCO protected, lesser-known sites and enables tourists to get to know other, lesser-known and valuable UNESCO places in addition to staying in large and famous tourist destinations. center_img The memorandum was signed on behalf of the Croatian Chamber of Commerce by the President of the Croatian Chamber of Commerce – Split County Chamber Joze Tomaš, who pointed out that the Split-Dalmatia County, with its richness in UNESCO-protected sites, offers numerous opportunities for cooperation in this area.  European network of UNESCO protected lesser-known sites Mirabilia, which was founded in 2012. in Italy, is in the process of expanding to other European countries.  “We in the Split-Dalmatia County are lucky to live and work in a county where four of the ten UNESCO sites in Croatia are located. It is a treasure and a boon, but also an obligation, because it is up to us to protect and preserve that heritage and at the same time to promote and improve it in the best possible way, taking care of the sustainability of the destination.Said Tomas. By networking lesser-known localities with popular tourist cities, guests are also offered new, additional facilities and an innovative approach, and chambers of commerce are there to recognize these new niches and facilities and apply them to EU funds through joint projects, said Joze Tomas. With the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding in Matera, Italy, on November 18, the Croatian Chamber of Commerce – Split County Chamber became a member of this platform. With the accession of the Mirabilia Chamber in Split, 13,5 thousand of its members get the opportunity to create new products and connect through more than 50 EU chambers of commerce.  Split as the center of the UNESCO story in Croatia.
