Experiences your business associates will remember for a long time

BY matilda July 16, 2019

For a successful organization of seminars, conferences or teambuilding, the most important thing is to organize quality and fun side activities, and there are plenty to choose from near Hotel Katarina.

Business travel organizers know that – whether it is a conference, a seminar, a congress or a gathering of company’s employees – one of the most important things is to provide unusual ‘extracurricular’ activities the participants will ultimately remember the event by. Hotel Katarina, thanks to its perfect position and good connections with tourist routes throughout Dalmatia, is able to plan unique experiences that will be remembered for a long time. In the immediate vicinity of the hotel, there are also the thousand-year-old town of Split and the wonders of nature scattered around the islands of Central Dalmatia whose beauty is breathtaking, and the lively villages of the Dalmatian Hinterland that offer authentic experiences you cannot find anywhere else in the world.

From bullfighting to blues festival

If you want to see something really exotic, in the villages of Dalmatian Hinterland you can watch the so-called bikijada or bullfighting. Every year, the eco-ethno village Škopljanci – Radošić organizes Seoska olimpijada (Rural Olympics), which focuses on competing in long jump, throwing stone from the shoulder, piston pulling and tug of war, arm wrestling for women and men and the cherry on top: bullfighting.

There is a handful of such events and manifestations all along the coast, as well as in the hinterland. If you are more tempted to taste delicious and homemade food, you will discover Dani pure, komina i bronzina (Days of fireplace, polent and pots) or Fešta Sv. Mihovila (St. Michael’s Days) in Trilj, and Nacionalni sajam pršuta i suhomesnatih proizvoda (National Fair of Prosciutto and Dry-Cured Meat Products) in Sinj. For those who have a gentle spirit, the Blues Festival in Trilj is a real treat. For those who prefer to relax by doing sports activities after meetings and presentations, Dalmatia offers so much – from rafting on Cetina and visits to Krka National Park, to road running and bicycle racing, as well as authentic tournaments like the one in boules games.

Both theatre and carnivals and Game of Thrones

To get acquainted with colourful costumes, customs, songs of the Dalmatian karst and hinterland, it would be worth visiting it during the “season” of carnivals, when there is no shortage of mischievous fun and teasing songs of young men just before getting married, like those in Neorić and in Sutina, whose carnivals have lasted for over 300 years. There are just a few of those who did not hear about Glumci u Zagvozdu (Actors in Zagvozd), a summer theatre festival during which the entire Imotski region breathes and lives for the top performances of the popular theatre shows.

If you want something really close to the hotel, with a spectacular view over Split and the islands, at the same time you can step into the places, the cellars and the walls where the actors of the most famous TV series Games of Thrones set foot, on which you can read more about in our blog Game of Thrones in Dalmatia.

Golden Horn, Blue Cave and Pakleni Islands in one day

And finally we saved the best for last, and that is a visit to the famous natural wonders of Dalmatia, the best experience which Hotel Katarina can organize for its business travellers. From Split’s main promenade Riva, approximately 20 minutes from the hotel, you can visit by fast speedboat Golden Horn on the island of Brač, the famous Blue Cave on the island of Biševo, the most beautiful beach on the Adriatic coast Stiniva on the island of Vis, the Green Cave on the island of Ravnik and Pakleni Islands of the island of Hvar, in just one day. So much beauty in just one day requires only one thing: a lot of gigabytes on the camera memory card.

Game of Thrones in Dalmatia

BY matilda May 30, 2019

Five key filming locations of the most popular series of all time are located in the immediate vicinity of our hotel. Come and explore all the best of Essos and Westeros!

With its fairy-tale locations, God-given natural beauties and incredibly preserved monuments of a millennial history, Dalmatia proved to be the ideal scene for some of the key locations of the globally popular “Game of Thrones”. And the Hotel Katarina’s position is ideal for their sightseeing. Here’s why:

  • Klis and its spectacular medieval fortress, or Meereenwhere Daenerys liberated slaves, is located only a few minutes’ drive away from the Hotel Katarina. Due to its strategic position, all pretenders to power in this part of Dalmatia had been fighting for Klis for centuries, but today Klis lives of tourism, and besides the “Game of Thrones” fans, it is visited by more and more world travellers who want to enjoy the unforgettable view of Split and its surroundings.
  • MedievalKaštilacCastle, located about ten minutes away in Kaštel Gomilica, is the next fans’ destination, because that is Braavos, a seaside town founded by fugitive slaves from ancient Valyria. Arya Stark was apprentice here at the House of Black and White under the mentorship of Jaqen H’ghar and his mysterious faceless men.
  • Just a five-minute drive from Braavos, and you’re in Trogir,or should we say the fabulous Qarth, considered to be “the greatest city that ever was or will be”, which was true until the city fathers of Qarth captured the dragons and paid a terrible price for it. The charming, stone town of Trogir is one of the best preserved Romanesque-Gothic towns in Europe that will delight you, even if you are not a number one “Game of Thrones” fan.
  • After visiting Trogir, in twenty minutes you arrive in Split, capital of Dalmatia, whose Diocletian palace was captured on many scenes taken with Daenerys. Today you can walk through the antique palace built in 300 BC by the Roman emperor Diocletian and see the tunnels and cellars where khaleesiwas training her dragons, while the former slave owners were plotting against their new ruler. Diocletian’s Palace is one of the seven UNESCO World Heritage Monuments in Croatia, and since you are already in Split, make sure you visit a recently opened Game of Thrones Museumin Bosanska Street in the very city centre.
  • In the immediate vicinity of Split there is also a small place called Žrnovnica, once home to medieval mills that fed the local people, some of which have been preserved and restored as tourist sites. You will recognize the location where Daenerys’s faithful interpreter and counsellor Missandei was filmed while taking a bath in the stream, and you will also see the quarry playing the role of the battlefield in the great battle of the Unsullied.

 

Šibenik, playing Braavosin the fifth season of the series, is only half an hour’s drive away from the Hotel Katarina, and since our hotel is located near the motorway, in less than 3 hours you can reach the “Game of Thrones” main location, our famousDubrovnik, which perfectly played King’s Landing, the capital of the Seven Kingdoms, whose iron throne represents the aim of almost all the protagonists of the most popular television series of all time.

Good job in China

BY lea April 2, 2019

We were in China, and it was wonderful – and exceptionally successful!

 

The tenth business anniversary of the Hotel Katarina with 60.000 overnight stays was also our most successful year – of course, we will do our best to again outdo ourselves in 2019 for the umpteenth time – but did you know that the biggest increase in interest we recorded was among our guests from China? The most populous country in the world is currently ranked second among the strongest emissive markets our guests come from, and after our visit to the biggest Chinese tour operators, it won’t surprise us if at the end of the year China suddenly appears at the very top of our internal top list.

Yes, we were in China, and it was wonderful!

 

 

Speed dating in Beijing

After a 13-hour flight, on March 24th, we landed in Beijing, and even our extremely overburdened assignment schedule could not stop us from falling thoroughly in love with Chinese culture, beautiful temples, spacious promenades and, of course, truly superb shopping. The reason for our Chinese adventure was our participation in the workshops “Experience Croatia, Feel Slovenia”, where we maximized the synergy of Croatian and Slovenian tourism, in the spirit of good neighbourly relations, for more successful joint step forward in this immensely huge market.

Our Chinese hosts were truly amazed by the first workshop in Beijing. Representatives from Chinese agencies sat at their tables, while we were moving from table to table just like on a speed date – eight minutes per table, 25 tables! Allow us to flatter ourselves a bit: we were perfectly prepared. We had our own interpreter and all of our promotional materials pre-translated into Chinese, which had proven to be a huge hit, just like a scented lavender bouquet and anti stress balls with our logo on them, that won the hearts of our hosts. To top it all, our contest that included questions such as “Where is the world’s best footballer from” or “Where was “Game of the Thrones” filmed”, allowed a few lucky ones, who gave the correct answers, to win a trip to Croatia.

We were surprised by the number of agencies that knew about us and were familiar with our work, even though we did not previously do business together. The key word here is “previously”, because in Beijing we created contacts that already generated new business cooperation. The Hotel Katarina is recognized as a premium hotel, ideal for a groups, but also for individual guests looking to explore our coast and Dalmatian inland, our hotel being an ideal starting point for all Dalmatian adventures.

Croatian wines, that our hosts fell in love with at the first sip, gave even extra strength to their enthusiasm for getting to know our beautiful places and sights, both cultural and historical, as well as gastronomic.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Shanghai is ours as well!

After Beijing, we landed in the most populous city of the most populous country. Insomnia could not bring us down, as much as the adrenaline kept us up, so we truly enjoyed each moment spent in Shanghai, where we felt like real celebrities, because for some reason people kept asking us to take a photo with them. We didn’t turn anyone down, and with a bit of help from Google Translate, even the language barriers couldn’t remain insuperable. Our five-star and 54-storey hotel in Shanghai shocked us at first, but soon after, it completely captivated us, just like our delighted workshop hosts, with whom we made the most out of our well-established 25×8 formula. During our joint lunch, we thoroughly practiced our networking skills, and we established valuable contacts with 25 of the largest tour operators who will already this season make sure our hotel becomes the centre of the Chinese tourist diaspora on the Adriatic.

Once we write this blog, we can finally turn off all the electronic devices and indulge in the consequences of our epic jet leg… But, nevertheless, it was worth it. Thanks, China!
