Nepoznata Krka, predstavljanje projekta

110 international students and professors participated at a promotional event for the target market segment on the topic of Sustainable tourism and innovations in visitor management in Krka National Park.

On Monday, 7 May 2018 in the town of Skradin, the staff of the Public Institute of Krka National Park presented the project Unknown Krka, as an international and national promotional event for the target market segment on the topic Sustainable tourism and innovations in visitor management for Krka National Park.

The promotional event gathered together 110 students and professors from Zagreb (Faculty of Economics, University of Zagreb, Croatia), Munich (Germany), Muscat (Oman), Haifa (Israel), Budapest (Hungary), members of the World Tourism Academy and laureates of the World Tourism Organisation, professors from the University of Wisconsin-Stout (USA), Hebrew University (Israel), and Leeds Beckett University (UK). Professors from Australia, Canada, Spain and Mexico also participated at the promotional event, where they had the opportunity to learn more about sustainable management of visitor systems and implementing educational projects in the Public Institute of Krka National Park, as the two pillars of the project Unknown Krka.

Through cooperation with the Faculty of Economics, University of Zagreb, the presentation of the project Unknown Krka: hidden treasures of the upper and middle course of the Krka River was planned, for the purpose of promoting the project, sustainable tourism and the importance of implementing innovations in visitor management systems for protected areas. The presentation also aimed to generate project visibility, thereby contributing to possible uses of these localities in the future. Participants also had the opportunity to tour a part of Krka National Park, and the localities where the Unknown Krka project will unfold.

The project Unknown Krka unites all that the Public Institute of Krka National Park does as a management structure. Nature conservation, sustainable development and infrastructure investments, visitor management, cooperation with the local community, and educational and presentation activities, have all been brought together into this project, which is sure to positively affect the overall development of the area of the upper and middle course of the Krka River.

The project envisages a series of infrastructural works within the national park, designing and introducing new presentation and interpretation content, and construction and fitting the new Krka Eco Campus visitor centre in Puljane, and equipping the Krka – Well of life nature interpretation centre in Kistanje, with artistic and multimedia interpretation collections. Additionally, walking trails will be built, boat traffic switched to electric power, and the content management and visitor management systems improved to include numerous educational activities to improve visitor safety, and to raise the awareness of the public and stakeholders in the education, tourism and media sectors on the natural wealth of the Krka River and all the processes associated with it.
