Buy a rose at magic fairies and win valuable prizes and more. Come on a romantic night – there are romantic experiences to remember. ”Call from the Nin Tourist Board.Nina was awarded this flattering title by the portal www.europeanbestdestinations.com in August 2015, declaring it the most romantic destination in Europe for that year out of about 50 cities that entered the competition for the title. On that occasion, the Tourist Board of Nin then organized the event Romantic Night, and that evening the city became a city of love in which everyone who was touched by “Cupid’s arrow” was waiting for a number of attractions. The event has taken place so far and attracts an increasing number of tourists, especially couples in love who want to feel the charms of romance in this old Croatian town.Often tourism workers forget that everyone, including tourists, remembers experiences and those little things that marked their lives. And that is why this story from Nin is very important and significant because it spontaneously and unobtrusively “plays” with the strongest emotion, and that is love. Someone once said a long time ago: “People change, but memories stay forever“. It is precisely these memories and experiences that we must provide to our tourists, and not sell the form without content through the classic rent of accommodation and the sun and the sea. “The Romantic Night event in the most romantic destination in Europe – Nin is being held for the third year in a row. In 2014, Nin entered the selection of the 48 most romantic cities in Europe by EBD – European Best Destination, and in 2015 it received the official logo of the Most Romantic Destination in Europe, which it can use in its promotion. Nin wants to be branded primarily as a romantic city, which includes existing brands: Nin is the first capital of the Croats, one of the oldest cities in the Mediterranean, a European destination of excellence, etc. In Nin, everything is in the sign of romance: the church of St. The cross, which is called the smallest cathedral in the world, the church of St. Nikola, then Gregory of Nin and his thumb, which many touch for happiness, the Queen’s beach that offers a breathtaking view and many other romantic symbols of Nina“, Explains the director of the Tourist Board Nina, Ph.D. Marija Dejanović added that tourists are very receptive to the event and note that Nin is increasingly visited by young couples.Photo: Boris KačanAs banal as the Wall of Memories may seem to you, it is one of the most significant emotions. Tourists leave through a signature, a postcard, a message… part of themselves on the wall. And that’s the best marketing possible, especially if we do remarketing and remind them of that moment. Tourists have literally left a part of themselves, and that is not to be forgotten. Is it? Now imagine that they have that picture on their fridge that they look at every day… smart enough.As Nin bears the official label “European Best romantic destinations”, and I have written a couple of times that the EBD title is as credible as the destination makes it credible, Nin is skillfully and interestingly played and communicated as a city for romantics through the 3rd Romantic Nights in Nin. Zagreb and Nin have slanted the mentioned title to make and tell a new story, while Zadar has not, with the proviso that it should be emphasized that the Tourist Board of Nin has much less resources, both financial and human in relation to the mentioned cities. But they struggle, they don’t whine about how impossible it is and according to their resources, even beyond their means they tell great tourist stories. They give that emotion and energy more, and it is definitely felt. And tourists feel it too.And that Nin tells its story in a quality and long-term way, is evidenced by the growing number of arrivals and overnight stays. Thus, Nin is one of the two Croatian record holders in terms of population growth during the summer. According to the estimates of the Croatian Chamber of Commerce, the population of Nin, a city with about 3000 inhabitants, increases by almost five and a half times during the summer season due to tourists. “Last year, on Romantic Night in Nino, a couple received as a reward a romantic dinner where a young man, Nino, proposed to his girlfriend. Recently, two more young couples got engaged in Nin, and often couples can be seen taking photos on the streets and sandy beaches of romantic Nin. All this affects the increase in attendance in Nin as a tourist destination for romantic souls”, Says Marija Dejanovic.Romantic night in Nin / Photo: Boris KačanWhat characterizes this event as well as Nin in general, which is all spontaneous, without some classic exaggeration and inflating, ie commercialization. And this is exactly where Nina’s greatest charm is, which makes a man, including a guest, feel natural and relaxed. Imagine drinking a glass of indigenous wine with your sweetheart on a sandy beach, two chairs, one table and your moment. An invaluable experience, right? It is remembered, it is an experience, not accommodation.If Nin itself had a small wind back from tourist institutions, I am sure the whole of Europe would know about Nin. I honestly don’t know why Zadar doesn’t promote Nin, even Zadar itself has a greater interest of its own due to the sale of quality and authentic content. Also, as well as the CNTB, which should be much more proactive, especially when we talk about smaller tourist areas, not to mention the importance, potential and importance that Nin carries and represents. It is necessary to go a little outside the security of its offices in Zagreb, in fact, much more often if the CNTB cares about the development of tourism.Nin is so small, and so big, important and significant for our culture, tourism, identity… and definitely a tourist destination that has the most unique, amazing, diverse and authentic tourist stories in Croatia. Nin has yet to be discovered as they certainly deserve much more attention due to their incredible variety, authenticity and significance. I sincerely hope that through strategic and sustainable development, Nin will forever remain as it is, with soul and story. Also, I hope that in the future it will not fall under the pressure of mass tourism, but work to increase quality, not quantity, as a year-round tourist destination because it certainly can and should be.Related news: NIN CHOCOLATE FEST AS A GREAT AUTHENTIC TOURIST STORYlast_img
