Verudela Underwater Park – a new great tourist attraction in Pula

first_imgIn Pula, on the Verudela peninsula, on an area of ​​about 200 square meters, there is the Verudela Underwater Park, an excellent tourist attraction and quality tourist content that offers tourists a unique and different experience – literally a walk under the sea.Namely, with the help of a special helmet weighing 40 kilograms, tourists can literally experience the sea world at a depth of four meters, without being divers or having any diving experience. Rubber tubes are connected to the helmets, through which oxygen comes, which enables normal breathing as well as free movement. How to describe it in words, hard, best see for yourself what this video is about.Fantastic, isn’t it?Verudela Underwater Park is an excellent innovative and attractive tourist content, exactly what our tourism lacks the most. The sun, the sea and the beaches as a motive for arrival are no longer enough, nor do they encourage the development of a tourist destination or tourist consumption.The reaction of tourists is excellent, they are literally delighted, says Dean Počeko, owner of the Verudela Underwater Park, and adds that this year the underwater park was visited by over 200 tourists. ” At first, it is a little strange for tourists when they put helmets on their heads and enter the sea, but they quickly relax and there is no end to the enthusiasm in the end. The biggest attraction is the fish, they literally swim next to you, you can touch and feed them, and for visitors it is an amazing experience.”Počeko points out and adds that the price of the service is 200 kuna per person, and in the end everyone gets a picture and video for free as a lasting memory of this unique experience.”I certainly have plans to expand, ie add new attractions to the park, but let’s go step by step, my biggest problem is the storm, which last year destroyed almost everything I set up.”Concludes Počeko and adds that he has excellent cooperation with the Pula Tourist Board, through which most guests find out about him, but he also advertises himself through leaflets and internet advertising.The motive for the arrival is not accommodation, but quality, diverse and authentic content of the tourist destination, and the Verudela Underwater Park fits perfectly into this story.Tourist workers, both hosts in family accommodation and hoteliers, must sell and introduce guests to such excellent content, as well as many others, even if they have no commission, ie earnings, because walking on the seabed and moving among the fish is sure to be unforgettable. experience. It is this experience and the destination experience after seven days of guests is crucial, because if we delighted him he will come back and promote us for free, if not the effect is the opposite, and we all know how dissatisfied guest is three times harder to return. And yes, it will return to your accommodation. It is that “magical” rounded tourist product where everyone has an interest and benefit, and if it is the opposite, there is no long-term and quality development.Content, content and only quality and authentic content.last_img read more

Syracuse displays focus in wins over Penn State

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on January 28, 2013 at 12:15 am Contact Ryan: [email protected] Syracuse exited the locker room Saturday for its game against Penn State intensely screaming and displaying a pumped-up attitude that would lead them to a much-needed quick start.After Friday’s lackluster 1-0 win against Penn State, the Orange knew it needed to come out more mentally prepared for Saturday’s game.“The team had a little conversation last night,” SU head coach Paul Flanagan said. “They had a little better focus before they left the rink last night. We had video and team meeting this morning and re-affirmed the things we needed to do better. The kids did a great job.”The team’s focus was clear as soon as the puck dropped. Syracuse began attacking early, looking to erase the memories of the struggles from the night before. The Orange dominated the first period with three goals en route to a bounce-back 4-1 victory over its College Hockey America opponent – a stark contrast to the night before.Three minutes in, Holly Carrie-Mattimoe was able to get a clean shot on net that was barely blocked, but teammate Nicole Ferrara was able to grab the rebound near the net and put the puck through for the team’s first goal just 3:04 into the match.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“We had a talk early this morning about how we had to come out more focused,” Carrie-Mattimoe said. “The music was shut off a little bit sooner to ice time than usual so we started talking about the game and got our focus bearings on.”The team’s focus was unrelenting in the first period. Soon after Ferrara’s goal, Kaillie Goodnough buried a long-range shot to give SU a quick 2-0 lead. When the team got a power play a few minutes later, Jacquie Greco was able to put in a mid-range shot at 11:29 to give the Orange a comfortable lead in the match.“Everyone knew, we knew, we had to come out stronger this game,” Greco said. “We knew we had to play better against a team like this. Everyone was on the same page today, and I think it showed in today’s game.”On Friday, Syracuse played loose and unfocused on the ice. Despite 46 shot attempts in the game, SU came away with just one goal, as not many of those attempts were clean or close to going in the net.Flanagan said the difference between Friday and Saturday’s game was the team’s mental focus.“It was just all upstairs. How are our kids mentally prepared,” Flanagan said. “I thought our leaders did a good job in the locker room, and then it’s up to the rest of the kids to follow suit. That’s the whole difference. It’s all between the ears.”Carrie-Mattimoe echoed similar sentiments, saying the team wasn’t as focused on Friday as it needed to be.“Yesterday we took the team a little lightly and we were joking around a little bit more,” Carrie-Mattimoe said. “Today we knew what we had to do.”On Saturday, goaltender Jenesica Drinkwater got the start in goal over Kallie Billadeau, who had started the day prior.The goaltender delivered a strong game to follow up Billadeau’s shutout the night before, allowing only one score on 15 shots. But after the game, Drinkwater credited Syracuse’s energy as the difference-maker on Saturday. The Orange came out strong and finished the weekend on a high note.“Our coach gave us a little bit of a talk and said we need to come out with a lot more energy,” Drinkwater said. “I think we just came together as a team and really brought that energy out in the first period. It was huge. We needed it because it was too close of a game for comfort yesterday and I don’t think it should have been.” Commentslast_img read more
