That continental tourism is an absolute hit is evidenced by the growing number of guests visiting Srijem and Slavonia. In the first eight months of this year, there was an increase in overnight stays of 59,07 percent and arrivals of 54,11 percent, compared to the same period last year. Good tourist results will be contributed by the fact that the destination Vukovar – Vučedol – Ilok, this year’s national winner for European destination of excellence (EDEN) on the topic of cultural tourism.”Vukovar-Srijem County is an attractive destination for year-round tourism. The last few years we have been extremely attractive to cyclists and boat cruisers. Tradition, events, the Danube, castles, food and wine are the backbone of the offer of Srijem and Slavonia. Over the past few years, the level of quality and diversity of content has significantly increased, among which everyone can find something to enjoy.”, Said Rujana Bušić Srpak, director of the Tourist Board of Vukovar-Srijem County at the presentation of the tourist offer of the easternmost part of Croatia in Rijeka.”The title of national winner of EDEN will contribute to the promotion of our destination as a desirable tourist destination. We are expected to present ourselves in Brussels next year, and until then we will work intensively on further enriching the content of the destination.”, Said Jasna Babic, director of the Tourist Board of the City of Vukovar.Botel Marina was not randomly selected. Here, the representatives of the tourist boards of this county felt at home, because six rivers flow through their area – the Danube, Vuka, Sava, Biđ, Bosut and Spačva. Martin Božanović, who came to Rijeka in a double role, was introduced to all the secrets of Bosut and Spačva, as a representative of the Tourist Board of the Nijemci Municipality and as the captain of the river catamaran Sveta Katarina, which sails Bosut and Spačva. “Legend has it that the ancient Romans said that the Bosut flows in one direction until noon and in the other in the afternoon. Indeed, the Bosut flows so calmly that even with the slightest wind, the water moves in the direction in which it blows. Here you can relax in solitude catching carp, pike or one of the twenty species of fish that live in the rivers, and if you visit the resort Sopotac, from its observatory you will enjoy the rich bird life and beautiful nature.”, Says the captain from the Germans and points out that Srijem is a real paradise for nature lovers.Continental Tourism Forum announced Martina Matković, director of the Tourist Board of the City of Vinkovci announced the 52nd Vinkovci Autumns which last from 8 to 17 September, and as part of this event, 13 and 14 September organized by HGK-ŽK Vukovar and Vukovar-Srijem County Tourist Board, in Vinkovci Hotel Slavonia will be held and Croatian Continental Tourism Forum on “Gastronomy – a tourist product of Croatia”. Along with the well-known Croatian gastronomic expert Rene Bakalović and one of the most widely read Croatian gastro bloggers Domagoj Jakopović Ribafish, representatives of tourist boards, hoteliers and chefs will also participate.A better place than Vukovar-Srijem County to hold such a gathering could not have been imagined, given that eastern Croatia is known for its hospitality, excellent food and wine. To come to Srijem and Slavonia, and not to taste kulen, kulen seka or sausages, is almost a sin.

Related Stories Syracuse sneaks past Binghamton, 9-6, despite offensive inefficiencySyracuse downs Loyola, 17-6, in season opener Nicole Levy always tries to rip her shots from 8 meters out. Inside Lacrosse’s No. 7 recruit in the 2015 class is known for her scoring, but there was one startling difference in one of the freshman attack’s first practices at Syracuse in the fall.As Levy loaded up to shoot, senior defender Mallory Vehar checked her stick from behind.“Out of nowhere,” Levy said. “I was like, ‘Wow. That was fast.’ … It was awakening. I needed that.”Levy has spent the fall and winter acclimating to the college game as she figures to be a major factor for No. 3 Syracuse (2-0) this season. She recorded five assists on opening weekend, including four in the first game when head coach Gary Gait played his best players, including All-American attacks Kayla Treanor and Halle Majorana. Levy is a shooter with an unorthodox style, but her undefined offensive role leaves the door open.“(Levy) is going to put pressure on defenses,” assistant coach Regy Thorpe said. “… If you shut down (Treanor), shut down (Majorana), she’s going to get on the stat board.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textLevy distributed on Sunday, hovering between the 8- and 12-meter arcs, swinging the ball around the top of the zone and finding cutters. Once, restarting play on a fast break, she drew the goalkeeper out and dished to Treanor for an easy goal.In the first game, Treanor and Majorana aggressively pushed into the space in front of the Loyola goalkeeper. Levy tried similar moves, but was unable to finish. Majorana and Treanor combined for nine goals. Levy is still looking for her first.The biggest adjustment from East Islip (New York) High School to college, she and her coaches said, has been the speed and strength of defenders. Between the two games, Levy took four shots, two on target, and missed them both.“It’s just in her head a little bit as a freshman trying to push and get that first goal,” Gait said after Sunday’s games. “She just had a tough day on the shooting end. I thought she played well though.”Both Gait and Thorpe previously praised her scoring ability. Gait thinks she’s been the team’s best shooter in practice, percentage-wise, since she got on campus. In a fall scrimmage against Penn State, Thorpe remembers, Levy got the ball at the 11-yard line and stuck a low-to-high shot in the corner.“That was fun to watch,” Thorpe said, his eyebrows raised. “… She’s not the biggest, not the most athletic, but she makes plays.”The 5-foot-2 attack has an unorthodox low-to-high shot usually seen in the men’s game. It comes from years of watching her father, Steve Levy, coach a men’s team.When he became her high school coach, he brought the style of play with him. Levy’s creativity, how she describes her game, developed at family barbecues while goofing around with trick passes and shots.“(The Syracuse coaches) always encourage me to try new things,” Levy said. “They’re not going to yell at me if I try a behind-the-back or something.”In that way, Thorpe said, she fits in with Gait’s free-wheeling style of offense. Levy said Gait reminds her of her dad as a coach.Though Levy has shown she can pass, and the coaches believe in her scoring, her exact offensive description is uncertain. In the meantime, to avoid getting checked from behind, Gait, Thorpe and Levy herself said she’ll learn from SU’s two top-flight attacks.“We’ve got an extremely talented offense, but she’ll find her role,” Gait said. “… her role is to, when she gets a shot, take it.” Comments Published on February 16, 2016 at 11:17 pm Contact Sam: [email protected] | @Sam4TR Facebook Twitter Google+
