In the National Park Brijuni all objects will be renovated and the level of objects will be raised to a five star category. The present golf playground will be renovated too, – says Tourism Minister Gary Cappelli, adding that a new concept has been developed for the best days for Brijuni.
From financial reports it is evident that catering services bring up to two thirds of revenues, and the income from excursions is about 15 million kunas per year. The income from hotels and restaurants is twice as much – 30 million kuna. Brijuni unlike the national parks Plitvice, Mljet and Krka is the only national park that is self-financed.
Director of the National Park Brijuni – Marno Milotic adheres to the concept of the national park in which tourist services will comply with the fundamental principles of sustainable development. This is also confirmed by the result of a new study conducted by Deloitte for Brijuni.
“This is an internal study in order to get a concept of the development of tourism services based on the principles of sustainable development, which would guarantee us the preservation and protection of natural and cultural values in our region. During the negotiations the cultural heritage of the Brijuni Islands is often ignored. Since prehistoric times this region has been a valuable mosaic of the cultural heritage of the Croatian people. This concept complies with the basic principles of the nature park, the preservation of cultural heritage and the management of visitors,” – says Milotic.
The Mayor of Pula, Boris Milotic uttered a key phrase in a statement for the edition “The Voice of Istria”: “The beauty and attractiveness of Brijuni are at the level of six stars and the tourist services correspond to two stars.”
We asked the director, if it may be changed or balanced so that Brijuni gets the previous splendor of brilliance?
“It may be implemented by reconstruction of existing buildings which are cultural monuments and are protected in accordance with the necessary requirements. It can restore the former glory to the island’s hotels, but it should be done following the principles of sustainable development,” – says Milotic.
