Petrinja’s strategic plan for the development of tourism has been presented

The destination Petrinja’s strategic plan for the development of tourism was presented on January 27, 2014 in Petrinja’s town hall. This programmatic document was presented by the scientists from the Institute for Tourism in Zagreb: the Project manager Ph.D. Renata Tomljenović, Ph.D. Snježana Boranić Živoder, and Ph.D. Eduard Kušen.

The area of the town of Petrinja is in the initial phase regarding the development of tourism, and this plan lays the foundation for its systemic, coordinated and plan-oriented development. In that sense, this document stems from a detailed analysis of the existing stage of the development of tourism, directed especially towards inventory assessment and valorisation of the resource-attraction tourist basis. Detailed analysis of the potential tourist market has been conducted and a concept for the future tourist development for this area has been proposed. This document offers an exhaustive review of natural attractions, cultural and historic attractions, as well as various events with categorization. The Plan outlines not only what Petrinja is different by from the other locations surrounding it, especially the destinations of continental Croatia, but also what its „strongest“ points are, upon which it can build its uniqueness and distinctiveness. The vision of the tourist development within this document is as follows: Petrinja is a recognizable tourist destination which attracts visitors with its gentle landscape, valuable cultural and historic heritage, and high quality gastronomic offer. From this developmental vision strategic goals have been defined, the proposition of the spatial organization of the programme has been deduced, as well as the future market positioning of the area within the project. Finally, on the basis of all previous findings, those tourist products which the development of tourism should be based on have been identified. A step further is the implementation of this document, so the current year will see the making of the Action plan with the clearly determined priorities, time of implementation, necessary financial means, and the holders of individual project tasks.
