After a month, the program was completed “The Dubrovnik digital nomad-in-residence” in which it participated ten digital nomads from seven countries, selected through a competition. They spent the past 30 days for free in Dubrovnik, where they attended workshops aimed at creating a strategic and sustainable direction in which the City should move and adapt to the COVID-19 challenges.
At the final conference, the results of the workshops held as part of the Digital nomad-in-residence project were presented. In the past month, digital nomads have gotten to know Dubrovnik well, about which they have only words of praise, and the positive reviews will certainly resonate well in the world community of digital nomads.
“I don’t want to leave! I definitely don’t want to leave. A wonderful experience. I learned that someone my age can pack up and live like a digital nomad in a beautiful country. ”, for HRT said Marlee McCormick of the United States.
"In the beginning, we all imagined that Dubrovnik was a place for a short stay, but the longer we are here, the longer we want to stay. We also visited a lot of surroundings that we were not familiar with. We were very attracted and I like that this project is progressing ”, said Kaisu Koskela from Finland.
The image of Dubrovnik, as an ideal destination for this type of tourism, is one of the main reasons why digital nomads from seven countries spent a month in the pearl of the Adriatic. Their visit will certainly contribute to the further adaptation of Dubrovnik to the wishes and needs of digital nomads.
At the final conference held in Lazareti, Dubrovnik Mayor Mato Franković announced that he would Dubrovnik will soon get a house for digital nomads. The construction of the house, with the adjustment of accommodation, would turn Dubrovnik into a destination that would be ideal for digital nomads.
“We cannot expect our future tourism to rely solely on digital nomads, but I believe they will occupy one significant segment of it. The House for Digital Nomads is a place where all those who come to Dubrovnik will find all the information they need, find a workplace where they will be able to share ideas with all other digital nomads. They are not engaged in just one job, but in different professions and jobs. ", Mayor Mato Franković told dubrovnik.hr.
Let us remind you, this is not Dubrovnik's first contact with digital nomads. Back in October last year, the City hosted the first conference for digital nomads, after which the project "The Dubrovnik digital nomad-in-residence" was launched.
