Split to Become Home To Croatia’s First Port For Cruisers

In around two years the port of the Dalmatian city of Split will become the first port in the country for large cruisers and the first Croatian member of the International brand EcoPort on the Adriatic coast thanks to a deal signed today ensuring over 18 million euros in credit for the project from the European Bank of Reconstruction and Development.

The deal, which was signed by Split port director Milan Blazevski and director of the EBRD for Croatia and Hungary Zsuzsanna Hargitai, will see two new connections for vessels up to 320 metres in length built, two 28 metre wide ramps for loading and unloading vehicles and passengers, plateaus for traffic and other supporting facilities built.

The port’s redevelopment will enable a significant increase in traffic and revenue at the port in Split and also for Croatia. The EcoPort membership guarantees the port high-level environmental protection, quality of service and security.
