Ethno-eco Villages for the Development of Rural Tourism

23 November 2009 No Comment

People on the island of Hvar have decided to improve rural tourism through the development of ethno-eco villages and all the towns and districts on the island have joined in the project. The County of Split-Dalmatia will suggest for this project to be financed within the European IPA program of Adriatic cross-border cooperation. Sućuraj is also involved in the program of renewing old stone villages and their integration into a unique island tourist offer. This also includes the town of Hvar, which is renewing Velo and Malo Grablje, Brusje and Zoraće, Stari Grad and its renewal of Mala Rudina and Jelsa which has made the most progress in the Humac area. It should be remembered that the island of Hvar hosted the first national conference on rural tourism in 2007 during which, at the County of Split-Dalmatia’s proposal, a declaration with a clause on the renewal of ethno-eco villages was adopted. It was signed by 16 Croatian counties and it is expected that the Croatian Parliament will also accept it.
