Gospić - Film about the Lika centre received first prize at Tourfilm festival
The multimedia film of the Gospić Tourist Association received the first prize in the multimedia category at the recently held 42nd annual tourist film festival “Tourfilm” held in the Czech Karlovy Vary, at which 136 countries participated.

The goal of the festival is to promote films through multimedia and audiovisual programs and awarding films, which, through their content and artistic quality, contribute to the development of domestic and international tourism. Films compete in four categories, and the film about Gospić, i.e. the digital postcard about the town has received its award in the fourth category – multimedia programs on the Internet and CD-s devoted to tourism and travelling. In the category in which Gospić has received its award 352 projects participated, and the centre of Lika was followed by the American Internet page devoted to the state Idaho, which received the second prize and the Ecuadorian multimedia tourist CD about Galapagos which came in third.

The materials, photographs and texts, and their collection was financed by the town of Gospić and the county tourist association.  Gospić is located in the middle of the Ličko field, one of the largest karst fields in Croatia, at 562 m above sea-level, at the intersection of several roads and the banks of three rivers: Lika, Novčica and Bogdanica. It is assumed that it was named after the Latin word “Hospitium”, meaning lodging or inn, and was mentioned for the first time in 1604.

The town is surrounded by an oasis of nature, and as a tourist destination it offers the possibility of active tourism through team-building programs in which visitors can participate in abseiling, trekking, paintball, jeep safari, horseback riding, rural Olympics, archery, riding carriages, walking, adventurous tours of the Velebit mountain, canoe safari, riding boats along the canyon of the river Lika and the lake Kruščica and speleological adventures. Hunting, fishing and mountaineering enthusiasts will certainly enjoy in this area and in its preserved rich flora and fauna as well as in the harmony between man and nature.
