A presentation of Slavonian destinations was successfully held for the Bavarians

first_imgUnder the slogan “The most beautiful Croatian secret”, a two-day event was successfully held in Munich on April 18 and 19, with the aim of promoting the tourist offer of certain Slavonian destinations.This is an event that was held in cooperation with the German tour operator ID Riva Tours, the Branch Office of the Croatian Tourist Board in Munich and with the support of Münchner Merkur tz as a media sponsor. “We are pleased that the promotional activities that we carry out with the aim of positioning the Croatian continental tourist offer meet with excellent reactions from the audience, ie our foreign partners, but also potential tourists. Germany is one of our most important emitting markets from which we generate the largest tourist traffic, which is why we see great potential for Croatia’s continental offer. I am convinced of the excellent results of the entire tourism sector this year, and especially the continent of our country, which for many tourists is still an undiscovered treasure.”, said the director of the Croatian Tourist Board Kristjan Staničić.During the first evening, or April 18 at the restaurant “Gasthof in der Au”, located in Starnberg near Munich, was held “Evening of Croatian Tourism Ambassadors”, which brought together young and successful business people of Croatian origin who were introduced to certain Slavonian destinations, ie the tourist offer and sights such as music, food, wine, but also souvenirs. “We presented the pearls to the Bavarians, which is still a kind of secret. Slavonia has a heart, warmth, excellent gastronomy and it must be a project that we will promote together. Most importantly, group, but also individual booking to Slavonian destinations has started. The cycling tour from September 22 to 29 of 100 people is full. In the last two years, a lot has been done in the promotion of Slavonia, and these results are a motive for everyone to continue working” said Selimir Ognjenović, owner of the German tour operator ID Riva Tours, adding that he was glad that at the wedding of the year, the one between Prince Harry and American actress Meghan Markle, wine from Slavonia, a Traminer from Ilok cellars, would be served.Photo: Vukovar-Srijem Tourist BoardOn the second day, ie April 19, in the center of Munich, in the premises of Münchner Merkur tz, the most widely read daily newspaper in Bavaria, a presentation of individual Slavonian destinations, ie their tourist offer, was held. The presentation was attended by the City of Požega and the Tourist Board of the City of Požega, the City of Ilok, Ilok Cellars, Winery Kutjevo, Winery Brzica, Zlatni lug and others.The presentation gathered a large number of guests, including business entities, so the Croatian participants had a unique opportunity to meet with the most prominent tourism players in Bavaria. This primarily refers to the tour operator ID Riva Tours, which in the main catalog for 2018 has an offer of Slavonian tourist entities on 10 pages, which is also the first time that a German catalog has an offer of Slavonia and Baranja.”We are pleased to present to the Bavarians, in addition to the already well-known parts of Croatia, Dalmatia and Istria, for the first time, continental tourism by promoting the destination of Slavonia, our most beautiful tourist secrets.” commented the head of the CNTB branch in Munich, Nera Miličić.The CNTB points out that during the evening, in cooperation with the Croatian Chamber of Commerce, the guests were announced the Vina Croatia project, which will include a three-day event at the Wittelsbacher Platz in Munich in May. The traditional positioning of Slavonia on the German market will be contributed by the traditional trip “Leserreise”, which Münchner Merkur is organizing for its readers this year in two terms, in June and September. In addition, the Bavarian Radio and Television – Bayerische Rundfunk, leased a seven-day trip in September with a large bicycle tour of Slavonia for its viewers and listeners. Until the event in September, the package will be intensively advertised through reports, radio spots, newsletters and brochures.Related news:NEW VISUAL IDENTITY OF THE CITY OF POŽEGA – HILLS & VALLEYS PRESENTEDDESTINATION “VUKOVAR – VUČEDOL – ILOK” DECLARED “EUROPEAN DESTINATION OF EXCELLENCE” (EDEN) </p>

EPL: Reds feast on Hornets

first_imgRelatedPosts Lampard: I still have confidence in Tomori Runarsson joins Arsenal on four-year deal Pirlo not out to copy anyone after Juventus’ comfortable opening win Watford vs. Liverpool Venue: Vicarage Road Kick off: 6:30PMLiverpool’s march towards Premier League immortality takes them to Vicarage Road this evening as they face Watford with yet more history beckoning. Just 12 points from claiming the title, Jurgen Klopp’s side would set a new Premier League record for consecutive victories should they chalk up a 19th in a row this weekend, but take on a Watford side that ran them close in the reverse fixture at Anfield. Twelve points is all Liverpool need to finally put their league title ghost to bed as they head into another week with another record available for their relentless and remarkable team. When Manchester City went a full half-season without dropping a single point in 2017-18, it was suggested that such a feat would never be repeated, yet Liverpool got to within one of the record earlier this season before subsequently winning each of their last 18 games to match Pep Guardiola’s centurions. Klopp’s class of 2019-20 have perhaps not done it in such spectacular fashion, but should they claim a 19th successive win as expected this weekend, then it would be another piece of evidence in the growing argument that this is one of the greatest teams English football has ever seen. The stats certainly suggest so: Monday night’s 3-2 triumph over West Ham United was closer than many expected, but it means that Liverpool have now gained as many points as Manchester United’s treble-winners from 1998-99 and as many wins as Arsenal’s Invincibles from 2003-04. Those are two teams unanimously included in the argument of the best ever, and yet Liverpool have matched their league feats with a whopping 11 games of the season remaining. The Reds are also closing in on the Invincibles in the unbeaten stakes with the West Ham win taking their tally to 44, just five short of the all-time record in English football held by Arsene Wenger’s side. Liverpool have dropped just 10 points from 132 available in that time and have taken a staggering 106 from the last 108 on offer, which is an unprecedented run of form leaving them on course to gain a scarcely-believable tally of 112 points this season alone. Klopp’s description of his players as ‘mentality monsters’ becomes more apt every week, with Monday’s result the 18th game they have won by a single-goal margin across all competitions this season, while they have also triumphed on penalties twice. Now masters of getting the job done, Liverpool’s lead at the top of the table stands at 22 points and leaves them needing only 12 more – or four more wins – to finally confirm the inevitability of their first top-flight title in 30 years. With such a commanding lead the challenge will be to ensure that the players do not get distracted by other factors in their treble bid, particularly with an FA Cup clash away to Chelsea coming up and the must-win second leg against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League looming next month. The narrow margin by which Liverpool have won many of their games this season has helped to stave off the threat of complacency, though, and they know just how tricky a proposition Watford can be after the reverse tie at Anfield in December. The Hornets were rock-bottom with only nine points and one win from 16 games when they travelled to Merseyside for what was Nigel Pearson’s first game in charge and, while they ultimately lost 2-0, they arguably deserved a point having spurned a couple of golden chances to snatch something from the game against all the odds. Watford’s improved performance was soon reflected in their results, though, with that Liverpool loss proving to be their only defeat in Pearson’s first eight games at the helm across all competitions – a run of form which briefly lifted them out of the relegation zone. However, that honeymoon period is now well and truly over and Watford welcome the champions-elect having lost four of their last five games across all competitions, including defeats to Liverpool’s Merseyside neighbours Tranmere Rovers and Everton. The Everton defeat, which came in their most recent home game, was particularly galling as Watford failed to win a Premier League match at Vicarage Road after being two goals ahead for the first time, conceding twice in first-half stoppage time and then again in second-half stoppage time. Only West Ham and Norwich City have picked up fewer points in front of their own fans this season, although the Hornets have also only lost five of their 13 home games – the same number as fourth-placed Chelsea. Since the Everton defeat Pearson’s side have drawn at Brighton & Hove Albion and been well beaten by Manchester United, leaving them right back in the relegation mire with 11 games of the season remaining. The situation is certainly less bleak than when they last faced Liverpool – the gap to safety now is only one point – but they know that they need to stop the rot sooner rather than later with the clubs around them all capable of picking up unexpected results. Watford may need to do the same with three of the top four to come in their next six games, although there are not many stats to encourage them against Liverpool. Indeed, the Hornets are the joint-lowest scorers in the Premier League this season and come up against the league’s best defence, which has kept 10 clean sheets in their last 12 top-flight matches. Watford possible XI: Foster, Dawson, Kabasele, Cathcart, Masina, Hughes, Capoue, Sarr, Doucoure, Deulofeu, Deeney. Liverpool possible XI: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Fabinho, Wijnaldum, Salah, Firmino, Mane.Tags: ArsenalLiverpoolManchester CityManchester UnitedPep GuardiolaWatfordlast_img read more

Keane book no distraction – O’Neill

first_img But if Keane’s differences with former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson, his decision to turn down the job as Celtic manager and a clash with one-time team-mate Peter Schmeichel were among the topics dominating the sports news agenda, O’Neill was refusing to be side-tracked. He said: “The most important issue here are our games, and Saturday [the match against Gibraltar] is really, really important. We have come off the back of a great win against Georgia and it’s important to focus on that. “Whatever headline… let’s just say we came here and there hadn’t been a book – there would have been something else, seriously. “He [Keane] would have slipped down there on the field and we’d have been talking about that, maybe broken his leg or something like that. There would have been something. “There will always be something here in the lead-up to games, and that I can guarantee. “I genuinely don’t know what the headlines are in the book. It obviously was going to cause some sort of furore at some stage or another – the very fact he put his name to this book would suggest that it’s exactly what would happen. “It’s there and it doesn’t matter. The games are the most important things for us.” Asked if he had discussed the book with Keane in advance, O’Neill said: “I thought about it at one stage or another but then, why? He’s over 21 – I think – and he should be capable of dealing with his own stuff.” O’Neill, who asked Keane to join him in the Republic set-up when he was appointed in November last year, has had to become used to the focus he attracts ever since, with the approach from Celtic and Aston Villa’s subsequent successful attempt to appoint him as Paul Lambert’s assistant during the summer cases in point. However, while much of his own time in front of the media is spent fielding questions about his number two, he is adamant it is not an issue for him. “Not necessarily, not at all,” O’Neill said. “He’s an iconic figure. He’s been here for a long time – you know that. He was an absolutely fantastic footballer and now he’s making his way in management.” O’Neill was in relaxed mood as he was quizzed about Keane’s book, and even joked about the former Ireland captain’s burgeoning beard after recently jokingly questioning the sartorial elegance – or otherwise – of the Irish media pack. Asked if he would be having a word with the 43-year-old, he said: “Well I must admit, I might well do because he looks really bedraggled. There is no doubt at all about it but I think he wants to join your group, so I think that’s the essence of it.” Within the camp, the players too were taking all the fuss in their stride. Former United midfielder Darron Gibson said: “There have been a few comments, but nobody’s talking about it. The lads just get on with it. There have been a few jokes made around the table, but, like I said, nothing serious. “I have not seen any of the comments, to be honest with you, so I’m in no position to be comment on it. I’d rather not.” Asked if Keane is the type of assistant whose leg players can pull, Gibson replied with a smile: “I’ve not tried. I’ll let you try first.” Meanwhile, O’Neill has called 20-year-old Hull defender Brian Lenihan into his squad after losing Seamus Coleman, as well as Shay Given and James McCarthy, due to injury for the double-header. Press Association The Ireland boss met the media in Malahide on Tuesday lunchtime after he and Keane had put the players through their paces for the first time since they met up ahead of the qualifiers against Gibraltar and Germany. However, they did so with the younger man once again making the headlines after copies of his book The Second Half were mistakenly put on sale briefly on Monday ahead of Thursday’s official launch. Martin O’Neill has insisted the furore surrounding the launch of assistant Roy Keane’s updated autobiography will not distract the Republic of Ireland from their Euro 2016 mission. last_img read more
