Tivat – 2.124 tourists who had more than 8.000 overnight stays visited Tivat Riviera in the first three months of this year. There were 44% more guests in the first quarter of the year than it was the case last year, while the number of overnight stays increased for 19% – said the president of the local Tourist organization Dubravka Nikcevic on a session of the Municipal counsel for preparation and observing of the tourist season in Tivat.
The season in that town is starting already next weekend with the opening of the Tivat’s biggest hotel “Plavi horizonti” in the cove of Przno. Local TO, said Nikcevic,, has made the new propaganda material for the up coming summer, and has already finished the majority of onsets on tourist fairs and markets in the region.
Tivat’s tourist economy, she added, is now in front of a very ambitiously made onset on the Tourist fair, which next week starts in Belgrade.
The mayor Dragan Kankaras said that the local administration and public enterprises are readily entering the season, which according to the announcements will be one of the most successful ones in the history of the town. Pointing out that the visitors this year can count on the clean town, arranged beaches, rich cultural – entertaining offer and good water supply, Kankaras said that all major construction places will be closed after the 15th of July.
The inspections and the police, he said, will try to minimize the problems from the noise from the cafés and with the illegal parking on city streets.
– The biggest problem this summer, it is clear, will be traffic jams, especially nearby the Tivat airport and ferry dock Lepetane. Considering the fact that there are no significant solutions, such as that there will be no construction of four track lines on the highway near the airport or importing of another ferry until the next year, we are just left to manage to coordinate ourselves well and to try to overcome the certain problem of jams on the highways as better as possible – said Kankaras.
The head of the precinct of MIA in Tivat Veselin Smoovic said that the police will do everything to make safe the citizens and their guests this summer, and that because of the volume of work, as a help to local police officers, there will come 10 colleagues from other towns.
The representative of “Primorje” Stanko Nikolic said that all preparations for the season, in which that HTE will invest 200 thousands of euros, are going as planned, and that they are expecting extremely good tourist “harvest”.
