Fratarski otok remains permanently accessible to the local population, there is no commercialization

first_imgAmong our fellow citizens, the island of Veruda, better known as the Friar’s Island, is one of the recognizable symbols of Pula and a favorite outdoor place of many Pula residents, which we want to remain permanent. Despite the fact that in recent days there has been talk about the commercialization of the island of Veruda, ie Fratarski otok, in the Bay of Pula, Mayor Boris Miletić emphasized in a statement that the island remains permanently accessible to the local population. The company, in addition to the regular maintenance of the island, has since arranged sanitary facilities for a new categorization of the camp and provided hot water by installing solar collectors, and arranged a children’s playground, which at the request of parents is fenced. All with the aim of a more pleasant and safer stay on the island. Precisely in order to achieve these goals, we delegated the island to the management of the company Fratarski doo, founded in 2014, with the aim of better management of the island and other locations where sports and recreational facilities are conducted. From Pula they assure that there is no reason to panic, that the bungalows will not be set up on the island. We are transmitting the announcement of the City in its entirety: Source / photo: City of Pula Namely, the option of a new tourist offer was considered, more precisely the construction of a bungalow for rent, which the people of Pula rebelled against. The problem is not only the bungalows, they say, but also the negative consequences that would appear after them. All previous activities have been carried out in cooperation with the citizens of Pula who are the most frequent guests of the island, so we will be guided by all future improvements in living conditions on the island, without any commercialization.” “The city of Pula, as the owner of the island of Veruda, has been working for years to preserve its authenticity, natural environment and continue to develop and enrich the island as a place where citizens will continue to spend their free time at affordable prices.last_img read more
