first_imgOrganized by the Croatian Chamber of Commerce-Pula County Chamber and the company COIN inženjering doo Pula, a presentation of the nautical-tourist complex Sveta Katarina-Monumenti was held at the Croatian Chamber of Commerce-Pula County Chamber. The 65m-euro project, which has been standing for years, is finally moving from a standstill and work is underway, which is scheduled to last until 2020.The construction of the nautical-tourist complex Sveta Katarina – Monumenti is being developed as part of the Brijuni Riviera program, as a project of special importance for the Republic of Croatia, the County of Istria and the City of Pula. The complex covers a total area of ​​46 hectares on which will be built two nautical tourism ports with 550 berths in the sea and the possibility of building 1200 berths on land and other ancillary facilities and hotel complex. The entire realization of the project, ie bringing the area to its intended purpose, is expected in 2020. The project itself is divided into functional units and will be built in stages, and the initial phase will be the rehabilitation of the bridge that connects the mainland and the island of Sv. Katarina, while the preparatory actions for bringing the infrastructure have already begun.”This is the beginning when Pula crosses the other shore of the Pula Bay”Danko Končar pointed out and added that the value of this investment, for which a concession was obtained, is more than 65 million euros.Mayor Flego expressed great satisfaction that the former abandoned military property is finally being put into operation. ” I am sure we have all realized how much we need such investments, such jobs and such service. I appeal to employ as many local craftsmen, small and medium-sized businesses that know how to build and work in such facilities tomorrow. ” Flego pointed out.The military complex on the island of Katarina was created for the needs of the Austro-Hungarian defense system of the city of Pula, and in 1912 the Naval Air Experimental Station Pula was built on the island, which then became the Air Arsenal. During the Italian rule, part of the existing Austro-Hungarian buildings were repurposed for the needs of the Royal Submarine Academy, new buildings were built, and a 250 m long bridge that connected the island with the mainland.By the way, the entire project is worth about 60 million euros, and the realization of the project Sv. Katarina-Monumenti is divided into three phases – the construction of the nautical tourism port Sv. Katarina, construction of a dry marina and a hotel complex. This is certainly a historic moment for the development of the city and the valorization of an attractive tourist location that will certainly raise tourism in Pula to a higher level.last_img
