After the epidemiological situation, Sisak-Moslavina County is planning a new impetus for tourism. The construction of the Croatian Wine House is planned in Popovača. This house will connect the rich tradition and modern winemaking of Moslavina and contribute to the promotion of the indigenous variety of wine škrlet. The project will be mostly financed from European Union funds.
Thanks to the rich oenological and gastronomic offer of the County, the project Buy locally is also being developed. Indigenous domestic products are now sold in stores in Sisak, Kutina and Novska and after the opening of the e-market, the chain of stores Kupujmo locally will expand throughout the country. In the area of Sisak-Moslavina County, systematic investments are made in the development of cycling tourism infrastructure - from bicycle paths and service stations to maps of bicycle routes. Other selective forms of tourism, such as hunting and health tourism, are also being improved.
"Sisak-Moslavina County provides several types of grants. In order to improve the touristic offer of the County, a total of HRK 400,000 has been provided to registered tourist entities, and with another HRK 500,000 we are co-financing organized tourist arrivals. Tourist entities also have at their disposal a credit line thanks to which they can get an investment loan without paying interest. The value of our continuous support for tourist programs and events is best illustrated by the extremely successful Lipovljani Meetings, the Voloder Autumn and the Chestnut Festival in Hrvatska Kostajnica ", said Sisak-Moslavina County Prefect Ivo Žinić.
Since it is less than an hour's drive from Zagreb, Sisak-Moslavina County, also known as the green-blue cradle of Croatia, is becoming an increasingly desirable destination for domestic guests, but after the opening of the borders, the arrival of foreign guests. The largest number of them in recent years came from Slovenia, Austria, Germany, Italy and Poland. "Guests can get to know the cultural and historical heritage, customs and traditions, there are also trips to Lonjsko polje, swimming in Topusko, tasting Moslavina wines and gastronomic specialties such as carp on forks, recreation on bicycles and river sailing. Tourists from abroad are slowly but surely discovering our richness of diversity ", said Ingrid Padjen Đurić, director of the Sisak-Moslavina County Tourist Board.
At the presentation of tourist plans, a new promotional film of Sisak-Moslavina County was shown with footage from the Lonjsko Polje Nature Park, which houses the first European village of the Čigoč family and the village of architectural heritage Krapje, the Old Town of Zrinski in Hrvatska Kostajnica, Sisak, Taborište and Moslavačka vinska cesta. where the wineries Trdenić, Mikša, Florijanović, Miklaužić, Ilovčak, Prpić, August, Romić, Sambolek, Jaram, Kašner, Cvanciger and Kosovec are famous. Škrlet is the first variety to enter the clone selection and has three registered clones. Out of a total of 227 ha of vineyards in Sisak-Moslavina County, 76 ha are under the Škrlet variety, of which 68 ha are in Moslavina and the Moslavina Wine Road and the Croatian Wine House will be among the most important tourist attractions in Sisak-Moslavina County.
