Slovenians are optimistic about the establishment of cross-border tourist traffic between our two countries

first_imgThe Minister of Tourism Gari Cappelli met with the Minister of Economic Development and Technology of the Republic of Slovenia Zdravko Počivalšek on the topic of bilateral talks on opening the borders this afternoon, and the topic was measures and plans related to tourism and the current situation with the COVID-19 pandemic. Otherwise, the epidemiological situation in Slovenia is better than in Croatia, so with today’s 10 new cases of covida19, in Slovenia there are a total of 1.418 cases (HR 3.149) and 89 deaths (218). Croatia and Slovenia have had excellent tourism cooperation for many years, not only because we present ourselves together in distant markets, but also because guests from Slovenia are one of the most loyal and numerous guests in Croatia, said Minister Cappelli during the meeting and added: “We are actively discussing the possibilities of opening the borders as well as ways to ensure all the necessary measures and processes so that Slovenian citizens can spend their holidays in Croatia. We paid special attention to Slovenian citizens who have real estate and movables in Croatia and we are trying to find solutions for their arrival to their property in compliance with all prescribed epidemiological measures. We have a common desire to start mutual tourist flows when the circumstances allow it, and we also want to find ways to ensure the highest level of health care for Croatian and Slovenian citizens during a possible tourist exchange.” The ministers also discussed the facilitation of tourism movements with the development of travel procedures, which was also discussed during the video conference of the ministers of the EU member states in charge of the tourism sector, which was held earlier this week. On this occasion, they also stressed the importance of strengthening the position of tourism, ie the availability of financial resources for the tourism sector through the future EU financial framework as well as in the current situation in order to maintain the stability of economic entities and jobs in the tourism sector.”There are about 110.000 private properties in Croatia owned by Slovenian citizens and it would be appropriate to allow them to visit their summer residences. In Slovenia, we are optimistic about the possibility of at least partial establishment of cross-border tourist traffic between our two countries, at least in late summer and under special health care conditions.”, Said Slovenian Minister Počivalšek, emphasizing that Slovenia and Croatia are traditional tourist and friendly countries and that both nations are good hosts.According to data from the eVisitor system, in 2019 there were almost 1,6 million arrivals and almost 11 million overnight stays of guests from Slovenia in Croatia. This morning, the Minister of Tourism, Gary Cappelli, announced that the border with neighboring Slovenia, which is our second most important emitting market with a total of 10% of overnight stays last year, will be opened first. Cappelli: We have a common desire to start mutual tourist flows Cover photo: Pixabay.com It is from Slovenia that there is a great desire to come to the Adriatic, at least according to the current interest of the media and citizens, but of course, first and foremost two preconditions must be met: a satisfactory epidemiological situation and the opening of borders.last_img read more

Man Utd, Chelsea seal top-four spots as Watford, Bournemouth relegated

first_imgChelsea come good Chelsea required just a draw at Stamford Bridge to seal their place in the top four, but won all three points in first half stoppage time as Mason Mount whipped in from a free-kick before Olivier Giroud slid home.A top-four finish and a Cup final in his first season in charge is a coup for Frank Lampard, who had to cope with a transfer ban and the loss of Eden Hazard to Real Madrid last summer.”There were a lot of unknowns when I came in, could we move forward without Eden Hazard?” Lampard told Sky Sports. “We knew we had lost a massive player. We’ve a real spirit within the group now and it’s a real team effort now.”Myself and the staff want to improve every time — the challenge now is to see what more we can do next season.”United, whose form has dipped in recent weeks after they pulled themselves back into contention for the Champions League, were locked at 0-0 at half-time at the King Power Stadium.But they finally broke the deadlock in the 71st minute, when Bruno Fernandes scored from the penalty spot after Anthony Martial was upended. Jesse Lingard scored late to seal the win.The result is a huge lift for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, whose team were 14 points behind the Foxes at the start of the year, but is a bitter blow for Brendan Rodgers, whose side have been camped in the top four for almost the entire campaign.”I’m delighted,” said Solskjaer. “We’ve come from way, way behind teams and gone past them. We’ve shown that we’ve got the consistency, the right mentality. We’re building a group and a performance culture here that we can be proud of.” At the other end of the table, Bournemouth and managerless Watford followed already-relegated Norwich down to the Championship while Aston Villa fans breathed a huge sigh of relief.Leicester, in fifth spot, will play in the Europa League next season where they will be joined by Tottenham, who drew 1-1 with Crystal Palace to leapfrog Wolves.Wolves still have two routes to qualify for European competition next season — either into the Champions League by winning the Europa League next month or into the Europa League if Chelsea beat Arsenal in next week’s FA Cup final. Manchester United and Chelsea sealed Champions League places on Sunday as Bournemouth and Watford fell through the trapdoor on a dramatic final day of the longest Premier League season.Liverpool were crowned champions last month but there was much to play for in the final 90 minutes of a campaign that started on August 9 last year and was interrupted by a three-month coronavirus shutdown.United finished third after a nervy 2-0 win in a Champions League shootout against Leicester, while Chelsea ended in fourth spot after beating Wolves by the same scoreline at Stamford Bridge. ‘Incredibly painful’ Two goals from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and a strike by Kieran Tierney gave Watford, who sacked Nigel Pearson earlier this month, an almost impossible task at Arsenal.A Troy Deeney penalty and a Danny Welbeck strike gave them hope but it was not enough and the Hornets were relegated after five years in the top-flight following their 3-2 defeat. “This is a reflection of the whole year,” Deeney told Sky Sports. “Not quite been good enough. Heartbreaking for the people who work behind the scenes and we feel sorry for them.”Bournemouth beat Everton 3-1 at Goodison Park but needed West Ham to beat Aston Villa to survive.Andriy Yarmolenko equalized after Jack Grealish’s late goal for Villa but the away side held on, sending Eddie Howe’s side down after five seasons in the Premier League.”It’s incredibly painful — we always believed we were capable of a last-minute escape,” Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe told the BBC.An early goal by Harry Kane put Tottenham in front against Crystal Palace. Palace equalized early in the second half through Jeffrey Schlupp but the point was enough for Jose Mourinho’s men to finish in sixth position.Liverpool beat Newcastle 3-1 to finish the season on 99 points — the second-highest tally in English top-flight history behind only Manchester City’s 100 points in 2017/18.Second-placed City finished the campaign with a flourish, thumping Norwich 5-0 to reach 102 goals with Kevin De Bruyne scoring twice and matching Thierry Henry’s record of 20 assists in a Premier League season.Elsewhere, Brighton beat Burnley 2-1 and Southampton beat Sheffield United 3-1.Leicester’s Jamie Vardy won the Golden Boot with 23 goals, one clear of Aubameyang and Southampton’s Danny Ings.
