From year to year, investments in camps are growing, and it is especially important that investments in raising quality, from building swimming pools, raising the quality of accommodation, infrastructure, investing in animation, etc. grow, so the focus is on quality and content, not just the sun. and the sea, Palman points out and adds: "As we can see from the arrivals and overnight stays in the first four months, we achieved excellent numbers, and the announcements for the rest of the season are very good. Many facilities are open for the whole season, more and more camps are opening in the continent as well as more and more small family camps, and in just a few days one such camp will open in Požega, camp Zlatni Lug, which is great news " Palman concludes.
