Croatia Underrated – why so quiet?

It is hard to explain why do podcast sometimes go quiet. I am sorry that I wasn’t able to record a full episode for a while now. All this time, I keep thinking I will find the time next week. Good news is, I have finally been seriously working on many new episodes, and I will start releasing them very soon. I was also pretty creative and started developing some new ideas related to audio – such as Secret Zagreb App that is coming up this summer! I have also been working pretty hard, trying to find ways to finance some side-products, such as audio tours through Croatia, and Croatia Underrated guide books. Haven’t been succesful yet, but I am not letting it go:)

I started this podcast in Covid times, and it is still my favourite project, but I just haven’t been able to pursue it after the tourism business with Secret Zagreb and other project rose from the dead. On the other hand, I’ve been a collaborator on so many interesting projects all over Croatia, and got to know many places that I hadn’t known before – I can’t wait to share the curiosities with you.

But – first things first. The first upcoming episode will enter the realm of myths and legends, and I will introduce you to the creatures of vile – Croatian fairies. Stay tuned.

Best creative podcast recognition

International organisation Creative Tourism Network continues to support tourism initiatives from all over the world by awarding the most exquisit ones with a recognition. This year, they started a contest for Best Creative Tourism Media, and one of the categories was – Best creative podcast. I just couldn’t believe it when I found out they awarded Croatia Underrated!

And then, it turns out that the podcast received another recognitionb in Croatia, too. Yearly award for tourism Simply the Best awarded Croatia Underrated as the best new project in tourism.

I am so delighted by these news. On the other hand, it’s a huge pressure since a lot of new collaborations are coming up, and it’s going to be hard to keep the podcast running as regularly as in the first years.
