Study Visit in Croatia

From 18th to 25th of July RAISE Youth study visit took place in Croatia. Croatian RAISE Youth team hosted a delegation from Pernik region, Bulgaria represented by RAISE project partners, representatives of Pernik municipalities Pernik, Radomir, Zemen and Kovachevtsi and young people participating in the project activities.

The study visit was designed to provide participants, from different backgrounds, with opportunities for more detailed study of specific subjects relating to RAISE Youth project activities in Croatia and entrepreneurial climate in Croatia in general. The study visit aimed to provide participants with the opportunity to get to know and compare with own experiences.

During one-week long study visit the group met the cultural and natural beauties of Croatia and learned about the development of entrepreneurship & best practices in Lika region. Tour of Zagreb and visit to some of the most famous cultural monuments and natural attractions of Lika region gave visitors an idea of the circumstances in which Croatian entrepreneurship is developing. Visit to family farms and other local business provided an up-close and personal view of the entrepreneurial opportunities and situation in Croatia.

This study visit was a unique opportunity to discover more about being an entrepreneur in Croatia and how projects supporting the development of entrepreneurship play a role in it.
