Vjeran Piršić, Eko Kvarner: The future of Croatian tourism lies in sustainable tourism where natural resources would be primarily respected, but also the natural possibilities of a certain environment

first_imgWhen asked how and where he sees the future of Croatian tourism, Piršić answers: “The future of Croatian tourism definitely lies in sustainable tourism, where natural resources would be primarily respected, but also the natural possibilities of a certain environment. But sustainable tourism alone is not enough. It is very important that we carry out the same tourism in a responsible way. That sustainable tourism does not work without responsible tourism can be best seen in the example of a Croatian eco-friendly resort that relied on renewable energy sources and environmental products in its business, but strictly forbade local events in its vicinity, which allowed tourists literally forced to spend within the resort”Says Pirsic.Piršić adds that he does not see the future in large resorts, but in changes in the current structure and change of roles in the tourism industry: “The ideal solution for sustainable and responsible tourism is private accommodation where tasteless apartments would turn into small hotels, renters become hosts and tourists guests. Through this type of accommodation, guests would be offered a bed and breakfast consisting of indigenous products, renewable energy sources would be used, and at the same time greater flexibility of hotel opening would be achieved throughout the year. “When asked if he thinks that Croatian tourism has the potential to offer its guests year-round facilities, Piršić answered with a dose of skepticism: “Private accommodation and small hotels are definitely the right way to expand the tourist season. However, a number of limiting factors should not be neglected, such as the climatic conditions in Kvarner, due to which our areas are abundant with rainfall from the beginning of November, then the beginning of the school year, which narrows the possibility of longer trips for many families. offer to guests”Concludes Piršić and adds that we are only 600 kilometers away from major centers such as Milan, Vienna and Munich, and sees weekend tourism as a realistic option on which to rest year-round tourism in our country.Source: Teklic.hr Encouraged by recent media reports, about the “cracking of tourism at the seams” in some tourist destinations, where mayors literally appeal to tourists to return in the fall or some other time of year due to congestion and large crowds, as well as their own experience where we are literally on the way to a resort stuck in a multi-hour, endless column of cars, and at the destination walking from terrace to terrace looking for a free chair, we decided to examine whether this kind of tourism has prospects for survival and what can be done in terms of long-term existence of Croatian tourism.Perhaps the answer to these questions lies in the following terms: responsible and sustainable tourism.A colleague from the Teklic.hr portal talked about this issue with a well-known Croatian ecologist, the president of the Eko Kvarner association, Vjeran Piršić, who points out large-scale tourism as a fundamental problem of Croatian tourism. “Today, large numbers of tourism are present in Croatia, which seems to be a likely path to ruin. There are two reasons for this – tourism in large numbers often leads to the devastation of destinations, and a picturesque example of this are Plitvice Lakes, where obviously all of us, due to congestion, this pearl turns from a national park into an ordinary park. The second reason is the “crowding” of tourist destinations, which in turn leads to a complete blockade of certain destinations at the peak of the season, as is the case in Dubrovnik burdened with cruising tourism or some smaller areas where the municipality of two thousand inhabitants the path to resource destruction, but also to demographic disruption, in the sense of facing a constant shortage of manpower”, Pirsic points out.
