EVAGO, an equestrian center where Equus caballus will enjoy luxury

first_imgOne of the largest and best-equipped equestrian centers will surely attract lovers of horses and equestrian sports from the surrounding countries, because in addition to riding school and equestrian competitions Golubiček is planning other facilities, so we are convinced of the success of this project that brings a breath glamor i elite tourism in Croatiau. Open and closed arena, auditorium, space for judges and other accompanying facilities of the center is a unique entrepreneurial venture whose total investment is difficult around 20 million kuna. On the upper floor there are club rooms, catering facilities and a special room for judges and two terraces overlooking the interior and an outdoor riding area of ​​6.000 square meters and a horse promenade. As many as 6 studios participated in the design and construction, and she is the main designer of the center Zrinka Grosek, architect Ars Theme Study who also made an architectural project. EvaGoEvaGo EvaGo The construction site is dominated by construction building area of ​​80x50m i height 11 meters built of laminated timber, common for riding halls not only for the lightness of the material but also for aesthetic reasons: the wood radiates warmth and creates a pleasant atmosphere for both horses and people. Except riding area of ​​2.100 square meters, in the lower part of the hall there is a space with comfortable boxes adapted for the stay of noble animals, with two common bathrooms and solarium in which the horses will be able to be washed and dried after training and running. The hall has a main and two side entrances, on one side there is a grandstand for spectators, and on the other a storage for straw and hay, and the already mentioned bathrooms with a solarium. The equestrian center is arranged and equipped as a 5-star hotel where about fifty horses (Equus caballus) will enjoy the full comfort of spacious stalls and the quality of other offers. Golubiček’s love for horses is also reflected in the choice the highest quality riding grounds and installation automated, modern irrigation system: twice-washed quartz sand mixed with felt, which ideally retains moisture, is best for cushioning hoof blows, and currently the state-of-the-art tide system monitors the water level in the sand via a sensor and, if necessary, takes or adds water to the sand would have an optimal moisture level and the substrate an ideal hardness. Tata Golubiček – just like his family has been engaged in baking for years (he owns Fran-peka and employs about 50 people) – and himself a great lover of horses, he gained experience and knowledge about equestrian centers abroad and after two years of collecting documentation and purchase of about 4 ha of land in Gornji Čehi, not far from the center of Zagreb, in 2016 began construction of a complex whose completion scheduled for May 10, 2019 when a commemorative competitive tournament will also be held. The assembly and assembly of the demanding wooden structure of the large hall is coming to an end these days Stenavert, a company from Gorski kotar with more than 25 years of experience on similar projects in collaboration with the Austrian company Hasslacher which manufactured the structural elements. The special feature of this building are the characteristics of construction and size: drvo was chosen as a building material because it is resistant to the negative effects created by horse urine – namely, unpleasant and harmful gases corrode elements of iron and concrete, and at the same time this is the largest building in Croatia with the so-called three-hinged frames. This, in every respect inventive sports-tourism project started in 2014 Goran Golubiček whose daughter Eva engages in show jumping. With successful participation in many international competitions, last year Eva won the prestigious June tournament, which has been held for over 60 years. and won the Zagreb City Cup as the youngest winner in tournament history. The project is fully funded private capital because the state and local self-government had no hearing, and will meet the highest standards for holding international high-end CSI equestrian tournaments.last_img read more

We bring you the story of how the Bulgarian travel agency increased sales 4 times during the lockdown

first_imgThe worst is the status quo / / / THE GREAT DISCOVERY OF MATHEMATICIANS! DISTANCE BETWEEN SPLIT AND OSIJEK IS THE SAME IN BOTH DIRECTIONS Just recently ended a phenomenal event #HeadOnEasthat Osijek, which is definitely the motive for coming. With canceled trips and no way to schedule trips, TourSkills turned to local marketing agency Together for help, which created a creative solution and a campaign that increased sales by as much as four times, writes Ads of the World. However, the tourism sector was, and still is, most affected, and then all borders were closed, with no alternative financial income and no certainty when the situation would improve. The campaign was also launched via Instagram (Instagram stories reached 20% CTR), and most importantly, it resulted by increasing website traffic by 3 times te with sales increase of 430%. A brave move that definitely paid off. In the campaign, travel offers were with a 30% discount and for the first time, with no expiration date – meaning customers could take advantage of the trip however they wanted or when the borders opened. Namely, it was clear that during the lock-in period there was a great desire to travel and explore, and the narrative of all tourist destinations was dream now, travel later. People started sharing their old travel photos, while others made bucket lists and dreamed of a moment when they would be able to travel again. However, as far as I can see, all or most agencies are still waiting for the summer season of 2021 and hope that the mentioned subsidies will be extended until April 01.04.2021, XNUMX. And interestingly, no one turned to continental and rural destinations in Croatia. Just before and after the season, the continent is the “peak” of the season, and as we know, the focus is on those destinations at the moment. You have a minimum of 7 days of phenomenal content, but let’s go on a weekend trip or a 3 day package first. Wake up and generate great tours, create a creative campaign and offer it to the market. Adjust. As we know, the crisis is also an opportunity. When, if not now? So the agency came up with a creative solution: It won’t be just a filter, alluding to Instagram filters as well as the fact that everyone is in front of mobile phones and computers, and created a print promotional campaign for the then unattainable destinations that TourSkills usually has in its offer.center_img As before, so now, creative thinking and “out of the box” solutions are required. As we know, the Government of the Republic of Croatia last month decided to continue measures to help the economy due to the corona crisis, which include the continuation of job preservation grants and liquidity insurance and Covid loans by the end of 2020. The grants that benefit the most are tourism, and thus travel agencies. Creative thinking, “out of the box” solutions, adaptation and change of focus on new markets and niches is a real proactive reaction. Action… It is not easy, there is a lack of information and ready-made tourist packages, but as we know, Croatia is small, and all the information is available on the Internet with little effort. Explore, ask… Croatia has something to offer. From the interior of Istria, Lika, Gorski kotar, Zagreb Green Ring, Međimurje, Slavonia… excellent quality and authentic content. Discover Croatia, we have something to offer, in fact. In March, a state of emergency or lockdown was declared practically all over the world, and everything, especially tourism, literally stopped. TourSkills is the largest Bulgarian tour operator with more than 25 years of experience in the sector, providing organized trips to various destinations and experiences around the world. And when you are already in Osijek, visit Baranja, Đakovo, Vinkovci, Vukovar, Ilok… Or Wine & Bike Tour Erdut, Vukovart, Vinkovačke jeseni etc.… but we don’t have to focus only on events, you can always visit museums, such as fascinating Vučedol Museum in Vukovar or you can sail the Danube on an electric panoramic boat. Regardless of the situation at the time, when tourism stopped and when agencies were without any opportunity to generate revenue, this example shows that the worst solution is the status quo and waiting for “miracles”. There is always a way to succeed in the market or at least jump out of others and get media attention, which we will capitalize on later. The word that dominates is adaptation. Do not whine, but open your eyes. Turn to new markets and niches, as you focus on continental tourism. After all, in the long run you will avoid the seasonality of income, because as I have already mentioned, tourism in, say, Slavonia takes place throughout the year. Hotels and restaurants are open, there is always some content, events, etc.… there is always season. Do not wait for the summer season, but offer the market an attractive offer. last_img read more

Grateful for article recognizing teachers

first_imgSome of my daughter’s students, who’d never thought they could pursue higher education, went on to college, thanks to the encouragement that she and her fellow teachers gave to them.Some of those graduated from college and are now successful in their careers. They keep in touch with my daughter and her fellow teachers.I recall when my daughter was 4 years old and would set up her Cabbage Patch kids, classroom style, in her bedroom and would “teach” them. She’d often force her younger brother (also a graduate of Schenectady schools) to sit in her “classroom” as well. Little did I know that one day she’d earn three master’s degrees, stand in front of a classroom and inspire children to learn.Although my daughter’s not teaching now (She’s home with small children.), she’ll always be a teacher. Thank you again, Daily Gazette, for recognizing the special people who teach the children who are our future.Wanda FisherSchenectadyMore from The Daily Gazette:Schenectady’s Lucas Rodriguez forging his own path in dance, theater, musicSchenectady NAACP calls for school layoff freeze, reinstatement of positionsSchenectady High School senior class leaders look to salvage sense of normalcySchenectady, Saratoga casinos say reopening has gone well; revenue down 30%Schenectady police reform sessions pivot to online Categories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionWords cannot adequately express my appreciation for the front-page piece you ran on Dec. 17 concerning the dedication of teachers and how much “the little things,” such as a note from a student, means to them.Although I’ve never been a classroom teacher, my daughter, who’s the product of the Schenectady school system, taught middle school for 15 years, most of those in the Boston public schools. The quotes from the teacher you interviewed could have come directly from my own daughter, whose students did not come from families who could purchase Christmas gifts for her. Instead, they wrote notes or drew pictures.last_img read more
