By 17 March 2019

ZAGREB, March 17, 2019 - The historic heart of the eastern Croatian city of Osijek is expected to get a two million euro visitor centre in two years' time, the head of the municipal department for EU programmes, Kornelija Mlinarević, announced at a press conference earlier this week.

Construction work is expected to begin this autumn. The visitor centre would offer at one place tourist information on the City of Osijek, Osijek-Baranja County and the wider region, and provide services such as parking spaces for cars and buses, shops with local, regional and national products, guided tours, and services for cycling tourists, Mlinarević said.

The Tvrđa project is expected to boost tourist numbers and employment in the tourism industry.

Mayor Ivan Vrkić said that the city government had so far invested 170 million kuna (23 million euro) in the Tvrđa project and would invest an additional 15 million kuna (2 million euro) in the visitor centre.
