Londoners Treated to Virtual Croatian Holiday

1908149_10153410206946929_2894382970367144159_nLondoners on their way to work on Monday got a chance to briefly escape away from the concrete jungle of the English capital to the beaches and mountains of Croatia, thanks to a new Croatian Tourists Board (CTB) initiative launched in the UK on Tuesday…

CTB set up the ‘We’ll See You In Croatia’ booth in London’s Marble Arch and gave visitors a opportunity to get close up to Croatia via CGI green-screen technology. Those curious enough to check out what was going on could see themselves sunning it up on a picturesque Croatian beach, on board a yacht in the pristine Adriatic sea, and enjoying some outdoor activities, whilst on their ‘virtual holiday’ thanks to the new technology.
