May 24, 2021 - Dubrovnik Historical Trails, a project implemented as part of the HRK 33.8 million "Rural Educational, Cultural and Ethnographic Tourist Attractions" project, as part of which five tourist attractions on the islands Mljet and Korčula, on Pelješac peninsula and in Slano were renovated, was presented on Monday.

As part of the project, the Ismaeli-Gabrielis Palace, housing the Korčula Town Museum, was renovated, the parish office housing the Native House of Dubrovačko Primorje was renovated, a Gold and Silver Museum was built in Smokvica, on the island of Korčula, the Austrian Road on Mljet was renovated and the theme trail Babino Polje was set up.

The project, launched in 2017, was part of the Operational Programme "Competitiveness and Cohesion" 2014-2020. Its value was slightly less than HRK 34 million, of which EU grants totaled HRK 27.7 million.

Dubrovnik-Neretva County head Nikola Dobroslavić said that the new and renovated facilities would enhance the county's tourism products.

He noted that his county was the most successful in Croatia regarding the total absorption of EU funds.
