In the socks of our tourism half the money than the Austrians, and why ?!

first_imgAustria, which has only twice as many inhabitants as “our beautiful country”, and which has no sea but only many, many mountains and plateaus, earns 22,7 billion euros a year from tourism! Of which 12,7 billion euros in the winter. And Croatia, which has the sea and Dubrovnik and Split and the islands untouched as if born of a “smart” mother, and also has Pula and Istria, brags at all bells that it puts in the state “sock” of the sun, ice cream, comfort and the sea all in all 9, 5 billion euros! And that is our limit! Published by: Gordana Igrec / published and transferred with permission from the portal Young people would say: sometimes it is “less – more”. But young people have left and are leaving. And no one listens to them. And the old ones, disappointed with the reality, turned a deaf ear to everything. Now I no longer know if any of those in charge “hear” these figures that resonate and embarrass us. While the whole column of cars after the “craziest night of the year” is heading towards the mountains with euros in their pockets, leaving behind deserted islands, sadly deserted sea and singing Istria and Dalmatia. When will this country get a ruling set that will know what and how with our mare nostrum, our coast, apartments, hotels, untouched nature, our delicacies, music and culture. While “dindrlica” is being promoted in Austria, who wears Split’s civic costume or sopila in Istria attracts tourists and knows how to cash in on it? This is not about predation, but about how we can appreciate this piece of land where we all found ourselves at the same time? How do we treat our natural and cultural heritage? And don’t we shout out loud, don’t we recite and dig into our chests just to cover up how we actually care a little (care) about our heritage, tradition, our nature, and everything we’ve inherited from our history attached? And what needs to be nurtured, presented and finally fertilized financially. Without such a worldview, the fact that 20 percent of GDP comes from tourism will not help us. At the same time, our mouths are full of tourist feats. While all the time we throw sand in the eyes of the inhabitants of this afflicted state or, like politicians, we push our heads into the sand like ostriches. Avoiding the problem. Photo: Hallstatt, Austria / Photo: Mostly looking for masseurs, beauticians, physiotherapists who will work for secured accommodation and food while skiing for a salary of up to 1 euros. In Switzerland, for example, where the share of tourism in GDP is 900 to 7 skis, and their income is alongside Austria, which means that it surpasses Croatia. While in our country the share of tourism in GDP is 77 percent, and our income “limps” for the Alpine country, with which we have been in a political marriage for centuries – Austria. It is obvious that mathematics does not go to the minds of our politicians, and they do not cope well with numbers or percentages when they do not “darken their eyes” on these statistics, which say more than all the words that everyone in our country takes lightly anyway. razmeću.center_img Photo: A country that has the coast and the sea as a God-given day and that could share these beauties with others in a way that secures a place under the sun so that it becomes a recognizable and popular tourist destination during 365 days of the year experiences ecstasy with only a few confessions of the world for her beauty or service or the occasional reportage. No, we are not as humble as we react. And why do Austrians already open the season for hunting seasonal workers in hotels in September or October? We just don’t know how our neighbors shared the crown and crust of bread with us! Even today, after exactly 100 years have passed since we separated, we are left with bread with seven crusts, and the heirs of the Habsburg monarchy – the Austrians “kajzerice, buns, butter and marmalade”. It seems that the “beans” fell to our detriment and that we got the thick end of it. We could also talk about our mentality, and say: “How are we better servants than masters!” Because, how else to comment that we do not know or do not want to use “heavenly beauty” for the betterment of all inhabitants of Dalmatia, Istria and the whole of Croatia? Some forever. It’s all the fault – GDP! Is it?! “Let’s go girls, let’s go boys, students, pupils, policemen! To the mountains, because there is no winter there “is the refrain of the song of the White Button, which is still happily sung today. Soon, everyone in line in Lijepa naša will start chanting this refrain, crossing the border after skiing to neighboring Slovenia, Austria, Italy or the Czech Republic or Switzerland and France, as well as to nearby Bosnia and Herzegovina, after the Christmas and New Year holidays. On the mountains to our natural beauties that surround the sea, to tourism throughout the year we are, it is clear as light – forgotten.last_img read more
