Lighthouses – Soon an even richer offering
The Croatian tourist offering should soon be enriched by 15 lighthouses.

This is the plan of the company Plovput, which manages all 48 lighthouses this side of the Adriatic, 11 of which are being rented to visitors. The goal of the company is to make as many as possible lighthouses available for tourism purposes by leasing the lighthouse buildings.

There is great interest for the 11 lighthouses with 21 suites, both by domestic and international tourists. This is best demonstrated by the fact that for the Christmas and New Year's holidays all lighthouses in Istria were fully booked. The lighthouses Sveti Ivan na pučini, Porer and Savudrija caused most interest. Staying in lighthouses, which offer a unique experience of solitude and escape from hectic everyday life belongs to elite tourism. They are rented by a special booking department of Plovput, and in the summer, when demand is greatest, tourist agencies pitch in, offering a unique vacation atmosphere in the lighthouses.

Since all of the lighthouses, which are cultural monuments and mostly date from the 19th century, are in a very bad condition as no one invested in them or maintained them for years, Plovput intends to lease them to interested investors who would revamp them and rent them to visitors, subsequently giving them back to Plovput for management.

Dilapidated lighthouses exposed to extreme weather conditions and vandalism would be leased for a period of ten years, and those requiring lesser interventions for five.
