We are pleased to inform you about the new travel mobile application HAPPYtoVISIT, available on all Android and iPhone devices.
It is an application that unites over 50 domestic travel agencies that offer over 450 different excursions and activities in the Republic of Croatia. All offers are described in detail, accompanied by pictures and guest comments. All offers are available for purchase in real-time within the app. We believe that the application works best in favor of the guest because guests have an overview of all realistically available excursion offers in one place, and all travel agencies can publish their services within the application without an initial fee.

Plaja - Beach Finder
After eight weeks of StartIT academy, a mobile application was created to digitize all beaches in the Republic of Croatia.
The answer to the question of where is the beach, so far has been offered through paper-printed maps that are impractical to explain and navigate, and large amounts are spent to answer just that one question.
The Plaja - Beach Finder mobile app works by showing you the nearest beaches, beach-related news, and weather, depending on your current location.
Using the mobile application, you can search beaches by map, category, or type (sandy, pebble, naturistic, etc.). You can also use a search engine by simply entering the name of the beach, city, or place. Besides that, you can search by specifying the radius in which you want to look for beaches according to your current location.
In agreement with the Association of Persons with Disabilities, the category of beaches for persons with disabilities has been integrated into the application. By adding that category, persons with disabilities have an insight into the accessible beaches with appropriate facilities.
There is a detailed description of each beach provided by the Tourist Board. The information includes location, content, and pictures. With the navigation option, there is an option that you can virtually view each beach via 360 View. The user can leave a comment, as well as a rating for each beach.
An important feature of the mobile application is that it works in Offline mode, meaning that navigation to the beaches happens without an Internet signal, which significantly helps foreign guests visiting the Croatian coast.

Croatian Soundscript - Split
Audio mobile application with short stories by Croatian authors
Whether walking on Marjan, sitting on the Riva, passing through Get, or waiting for the bus, you can "catch" short urban stories by contemporary Croatian authors or excerpts from older Croatian literature by downloading to your smartphone the free sound application "Croatian Soundscript".
Like a quest for a literary Pokemon, ‘Croatian Soundscript’ is a mobile application that invites the audience on a sonic and interactive journey and is projected through a whole series of poetic and delicate stories in contrast to the banality of daily life. The application is activated with the help of geolocation around the city of Split, either at bus stops or in historically significant public places and city parks. The content of the application are unpublished short stories by contemporary Croatian authors, while in some historically significant places of the city you can listen to quotes or excerpts from older Croatian literature inspired by the space in which they are located or an urban theme from that time.
The application’s content is sound-engineered with actors’ voices and placed in a designed audio-scene inspired by the theme of each individual story. Users of the application will be able to discover and listen to short stories of urban themes whilst walking through the city at their own pace and in this way relax and briefly step into the parallel reality of others’ lives that travel through empty spaces. Just download the application on Google Play Store and App Store and turn on geolocation, and stories will arrive on your phone as you walk around town.
The application "Croatian Soundscript" contains 73 short stories, some of which have a connection with the city of Split and its local population. Excerpts from classic Croatian works on urban themes are also included and these too have a connection with the city of Split. You can walk around the city and listen to the stories and excerpts of Marina Vujčić, Nada Topić, Ante Zlatko Stolica, Tanja Mravak, Elvis Bošnjak, Marija Glavaš, Nebojša Lujanović, Olja Runjić, Katja Grcić, Slobodanka Đuderija Renato Baretić, Luiza Bouharaou, Marija Jurić, Sonja Gaš , Mani Gotovac, Miljenko Smoje, Ivo Dellala, Marko Marulić, Anatoli Kudrjavcev, Luka Botić, Marin Bega, Bogdan Radica, Marko Uvodić from Split, Tonko Maroević, Tonća Petrasov Marović.
