The 22nd Croatia Boat Show opened its doors

After a two-year break due to the pandemic, the Croatia Boat Show opened in Split on Tuesday, which will run until Saturday, April 30. For the 22nd time, the Split Nautical Fair gathers the nautical elite at the Riva of Split and in front of the Port Authority building. At the opening of the fair, the director of the fair, Vicenco Blagaić, pointed out that there were more than 100 exhibitors.

"We gathered more than 100 exhibitors at sea and on land, overcame various challenges from the pandemic, supply of materials, to the suspension of production, but we managed to organize a fair, the only nautical this year since the others were canceled. We are really proud and satisfied even though this is far from what we had a few years ago when our whole port was full of ships. Fifty percent of the exhibitors at the time went bankrupt, and very few new ones appeared. It happens that the big ones buy the small ones, similar to the car industry. It will be difficult to return the golden years", said Vicenco Blagajić, the director of the fair, which will be open until Saturday, every day from 10 am to 7 pm, and on the last day until 6 pm. Tickets can be purchased at the entrance at a price of 40 kuna, Friday and Saturday 50 kuna.
