The project of the Cultural and Tourist Route “Roads of the Frankopans” is coming to an end. Will it come to life in the market?

first_imgA noble family whose origin is connected to the island of Krk, and they have expanded their influence to the area of ​​Kvarner, part of Lika, and part of the interior of Croatia. As in addition to the historical heritage and significance of the Frankopan family for the entire Kvarner, we have inherited many castles and castles, and a project for the development and revitalization of the Cultural and Tourist Route “The Ways of the Frankopans ” The Frankopan princes of Krk have left a deep mark on Kvarner, and due to their exceptional international influence, many consider them the most important family in the history of Croatia, and the best word to describe them is diplomats. The project holder is the Primorje-Gorski Kotar County, and the partners are the cities of Rijeka, Kraljevica, Bakar and Čabar, Čavle, Lokve and Vinodolska municipalities and the Diocese of Krk, the Natural History Museum of Rijeka, the Krk Cultural Center, the Rijeka Tourist Board and the Kvarner Tourist Board. The total value of the project is HRK 64.116.001,04, and the EU grant amounts to HRK 47.306.235,33. The cultural and tourist route “Frankopan Roads” includes 17 castles, fortified towns and castles and 3 sacral complexes. The route is divided into four territorial units that emphasize the diversity of the landscape of the Kvarner region, namely the island of Krk, Gorski kotar, Rijeka and its surroundings and Vinodol. The aim of the project is to develop a cultural and tourist product whose contents will attract more visitors to the locations of castles that were not in the foreground of the tourist offer of the Kvarner region and thus revive the less developed parts of Primorje-Gorski Kotar County.  The project protects the cultural heritage of the Frankopan family in the Kvarner region and creates new socio-economic value through its tourist valorization.center_img More about the Cultural and Tourist Route “The Ways of the Frankopans ” find out HERE The project ends at the end of 2019, and the Cultural and Tourist Route “Frankopan Roads” will give new added value to the project Rijeka – European Capital of Culture 2020.

After the renovation and revitalization of certain castles and castles, and the definition of a tourist product, now remains the most important step – that the Cultural-tourist route “Roads of Frankopan” come to life “with full lungs” on the market as an interesting rounded tourist product. The form is there, now we need quality and interesting content and storytelling. The history of the Frankopan princes of Krk lasted more than five and a half centuries: members of this noble family were the bearers of political, social, economic and cultural development in their area, primarily in the area of ​​today’s Croatian region Kvarner.last_img read more

Dodgers’ Hanley Ramirez is a thorn in Cardinals’ side

first_imgHanley Ramirez couldn’t do a simple thing like laugh without pain from the fractured eighth rib on his left side.So Ramirez sure smiled a lot. He could laugh or he could cry. Or in this case, he smiled.It would’ve hurt more for Ramirez to be out of the lineup for Game 3 of the NLCS with the Dodgers down 0-2 with a bunch of lifeless bats. The 29-year-old shortstop had never played in the playoffs before this stint and a pain in the rib wasn’t going to become a pain in the Dodgers’ side.“It’s just a different feeling in the postseason,” Ramirez said. “Every pitch, every out. It’s a different feeling in the playoffs, and you want to be a part of it.” No matter how much pain he had to hide, and Ramirez used that smile to mask perhaps a thousand grimaces.Ramirez made an improbable recovery, and he keyed the Dodgers to a 3-0 win over the Cardinals on Monday in Game 3. The Dodgers have pulled within 2-1 in the NLCS to jump out of a bleak hole.“They made a trade for me and it meant a lot to me,” Ramirez said in the dugout before the game. “Since the first day I got here, they showed me a lot of love and a lot of respect. I’ll do anything for this team and this city.”Ramirez earned the love back when he was introduced in pregame lineups. Everyone loves a player with a good comeback story, and he said that reaction got him energized.He already had energized his teammates just by stepping on the field. Andre Ethier – who’s playing through a foot injury – was in the lineup again, too. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img “It’s definitely a big motivation when you see your star players go out there hurt,” Ryu said through a translator. “It really inspires you and motivates you to go out there and do the best you can.”Hanley did more. He was 2 for 4 and had two instrumental bloop singles and an insurance RBI in the eighth inning. He was the most impactful player for the Dodgers beside Ryu’s outdueling Adam Wainwright.Ramirez took well-documented batting practice – on the field so the Cardinals could see – and showed that a CT scan revelation wasn’t going to dictate whether he could swing a bat.He showed off padding around his ribs – to protect him in case he had to dive for a ball – and never grimaced.He told us so.“I told you I was going to be the same guy even with pain,” Ramirez said. “Just wanted to relax everyone and keep everyone loose.”Ramirez has long had this phrase attached to his locker: “Attitude is everything. Pick a good one.”Check.His mere presence showed his teammates a gritty, gutsy side. It wasn’t recognizable in Miami, maybe, but Los Angeles knows him as a mature, fun guy not a problem player.Every move he made a day earlier hurt. He couldn’t even swing a bat on Sunday, but there wasn’t a game then.Yasiel Puig brought a contagious energy and enthusiasm to the flailing club in June and helped start a turnaround that changed the Dodgers’ fortunes.Ramirez did that for the Dodgers on Monday.Armed with the knowledge that he couldn’t be further injured, Ramirez told Dodgers manager Mattingly he would play. Not that he could or should. That he would.It changed the entire Dodgers lineup.In the first inning.Ramirez hit the first pitch Wainwright threw at him and singled to shallow center field with two outs. In the fourth inning, after Mark Ellis hit a leadoff double, Ramirez flew out to right field but that enabled Ellis to move to third. An Adrian Gonzalez double scored Ellis, and the Dodgers led 1-0. Puig drove in another run with a two-out triple.In the eighth, Carl Crawford went from second to home on a bloop single by Ramirez. That gave the Dodgers a 3-0 lead. And more smiles from Ramirez.Defensively, Ramirez was fine. There was no situation where he needed to dive for grounders, so that was a plus.Ramirez had fun. He didn’t even sleep Sunday night, but he felt lucky to play in the playoffs, especially after that rib injury scratched him from the lineup in Game 2.If Ramirez wasn’t being stretched by trainers in the dugout, he was dancing. The only time he seemed stressed was when he couldn’t find his batting gloves in the dugout. Eventually, he found them.And you thought sneezing would cause him the most angst.After reliever Brian Wilson pitched a scoreless eighth inning, Ramirez was dancing on the top dugout step and motioned for fans to give him some noise.He stole their hearts by playing through the pain of a broken rib. They happily obliged.Ramirez focused on the moment. He focused on the playoffs. He focused on his Dodgers teammates. And he focused on that smile.“I’m happy that Hanley was able to find the strength to play after getting hit so hard over there in St. Louis,” Puig said. “Really, everybody rallied around him, and we tried to do our best.”Ramirez didn’t dwell on that broken rib.And now, the Dodgers are no longer broken.last_img read more
