Minister of Tourism and Sports Nikolina Brnjac pointed out that it was Last year, Croatia had the best results in the Mediterranean.

The latest Eurostat data on tourist traffic in the European Union show that in the period from January to July this year, Croatia, of all Mediterranean countries, recorded the smallest decline in the number of domestic and foreign tourists and in realized tourist nights. These physical indicators are accompanied by those financially in which a conservative assessment of how will year end at 50% of tourism revenue compared to last year’s record, which is a good result given the circumstances.

Therefore, more than ever, we need quality and targeted marketing campaigns, which will ensure our visibility in the most important emitting markets. “, concluded Brnjac. According to the Tax Administration in the first eight months of this year the amount of fiscalized accounts in activities amounts 57% of the value compared to the same period last year. “Given that this year we were a desirable car destination for tourists from the surrounding countries, it is to be expected that next year will benefit car destinations, last minute demand, accommodation facilities of higher categories and those isolated that provide isolation.”, Minister Brnjac pointed out and added that despite that, distant markets must be ready to react in a timely manner when airlines are re-established towards Croatia.
Check out the use of colour inside this Brisbane home. Photo: Andy Macpherson.Cloud Dwellers director Jason Haigh took a general palette of neutral tones and natural materials to the Wavell Heights home, and punctuated them with elements in a bold Dulux colour called Yellow Mask. “We like to include a dramatic colour element in all our projects as it brings out an emotional connection with those who come into contact with it,” Mr Haigh said. “We think the all-neutral palette used on most contemporary projects is a safe choice, but it doesn’t make a lasting impression”.Mr Haigh said he used an unconventional approach to how colour was distributed in the home’s design. “We have used three-dimensional colour blocks dispersed around the home in certain areas not complicated by furniture. They appear like minimalist sculptural elements and become focal points within the house.“The yellow colour appears within the kitchen, dining, entry alcove, stairwell, and bathroom. “The distribution is not related to particular functions, but instead is placed to celebrate moments of interesting natural light qualities, and to mark moments of transition within the house.” MORE QLD REAL ESTATE NEWS: A finalist in the Dulux Colour Awards 2020 – Residential Interior is Sunny House by Cloud Dwellers and Diana Azzarello.

The yellow is also used as a threshold alcove adjacent to the front door to introduce a positive emotional character at the moment of entry.” The bathroom inside the Wavell Heights home.
