New video! Dubrovnik pilot site
View of Dubrovnik old town
The wonderful old town of Dubrovnik (Croatia) is a UNESCO World Heritage site and attracts thousands of tourists every year. Dubrovnik is also one of the 6 pilot sites of the HERIT-DATA project.

In this new video, our partner, the City of Dubrovnik Development Agency, tells us more about this pilot action.

“The Dubrovnik Development Agency has recognized that the HERIT-DATA project could be a great contribution to the measures taken by the City of Dubrovnik to develop sustainable tourism”, explains Stjepan Cavar, from the City of Dubrovnik Development Agency.

Jelka Tepsik, Deputy Mayor of Dubrovnik, explains how the city invests in initiatives promoting the sustainability of tourism, such as Respect the City , in order to support heritage conservation, quality life and ensuring the best possible experience of Dubrovnik as a destination for its visitors.

In Dubrovnik, we will monitor the flow of visitors in real time through six counting cameras installed at the entrances of the old town. The information is then injected into the dashboard on Snap4City platform, and becomes available to be analysed.
