POREČ NAMED THE BEST SUMMER HOLIDAY DESTINATION IN 2016
The Town of Poreč was named the Best Summer Holiday Destination in 2016 at the Days of Croatian Tourism Awards, which were jointly organised by the Ministry of Tourism and the Croatian Chamber of the Economy and held in Bol on the island of Brač on October 26th and 27th! Poreč won the prestigious award for the best summer holiday destination thanks to the year-long effort and hard work of the city administration, the tourist board and the hoteliers, with the first ever Poreč Open Air Festival also playing a pivotal role.
The people of Poreč and its visitors were given the opportunity to enjoy over 250 different events at the first Poreč Open Air Festival, which took place between June 9th and September 10th and significantly enhanced the town’s tourist offer. This year, Poreč was teeming with events that catered to all tastes, ranging from street performances, open-air movie screenings and theatre to the Princess Ball, music nights and large concerts at the Promenade, all of which made for some unforgettable summer moments. In just under 100 days, more than 50,000 locals and cialis tourists had the chance to enjoy the Festival of Life programme featuring 250 performers. Winning this award will be an added incentive for MPG and Valamar Riviera, the organiser and the main partner of the event respectively, to make the 2nd Poreč Open Air Festival even more appealing and entertaining for everyone visiting beautiful Poreč in 2017!
