On the occasion of the Šibenik-Knin County Tourism Day, in the Croatian National Theater Šibenik, after a three-year break, "Golden boules" - awards and recognitions - were ceremoniously awarded Šibenik-Knin County Tourist Board for exceptional contribution in the field of tourist offer and promotion.

Today we want to reward some of you and thank everyone to those who contribute to the development of tourism in the county", said director Šakić.

"We are satisfied, because we finished this year well and are already preparing for the new tourist season. I want to congratulate all the laureates and point out that this is an award for their successes and the work and effort they invested in the tourism promotion of our county, municipalities and cities, and thereby promoting its natural beauty, cultural heritage and the hospitality of our people", said the prefect and wished everyone a Merry Christmas and an even more successful new year 2024.
