ZAGREB, Oct 8 (Hina) – The Lika region and Mali Lošinj on the island of Lošinj have been included among the top 100 sustainable green destinations for 2020, prepared for the sixth year in a row by the Global Green Destinations foundation.
The list was presented earlier this week at the online conference Global Green Destination Days, the Lika Destination Cluster said, adding that they were happy that Lika was included on the list.
They said that since the Cluster was established they have been working on developing a Smart Sustainable Destination.
“The Cluster’s core activity is the promotion of Lika as a tourist destination on the domestic and foreign markets based on its natural, cultural, historical, gastronomical and health features. Quality cooperation with eight protected nature areas, including three of eight national parks in Croatia, and creating a joint entry ticket for the Lika destination, conducting programmes for several days aimed at having guests spend more time in Lika, networking and connecting local producers under a joint brand – Lika Quality – and other sustainable tourist projects are just part of what we are working on to create conditions for the development of sustainable year-round tourism in the Lika destination,” the Cluster’s representatives said.
They added that being included on the list was proof that destination development is going in the right direction in line with the latest global trends, which is also being recognised more on the tourism market.
Among this year’s finalists, Slovenia has been awarded in the Best of Europe category.
