Tourist agency Net Travel Service have developed a new attraction for tourists visiting Croatia which celebrates the life of former Yugoslav president Marshal Josip Broz Tito. The package, titled "Tito's Paths", is a political-historical tour, primarily aimed at American students, writes daily newspaper Jutarnji list.
"Tito's Paths" will give those the chance to visit all sites related to Tito's life, from Kumrovec (Krapina-Zagorje County) where he was born, to the island of Goli Otok in the northern Adriatic which was a top secret prison and labour camp during Tito's era in charge of Yugoslavia.
The idea for the tourist route came from tourist agency Net Travel Service (NTS), who belong to the international group Tumlare, with offices in America, Asia and Europe, including a branch in Croatia's capital Zagreb. The tourist package they say will target American students who have a massive interest in these kind of packages.
"We are planning a seven-day programme. We will visit all locations connected with Tito's life such as Kumrovec, Bled and Ljubljana in Slovenia, Zagreb and Belgrade and also Brijuni and Goli otok. Along with political lectures, interested students and professors will also have fun on the tour," said Mirela Sucic Cevra, director at NTS.
