The UNWTO's recent publication entitled "Accessibility and Inclusive Tourism Development in Nature Areas - Compendium of Best Practices" cites the Bliznec Forest Trail in Medvednica Nature Park, near the capital city of Zagreb, as an example of accessible tourism in nature areas.
For more than a year the Croatian National Tourist Board (HTZ), in cooperation with the UNWTO and its Working Group on Accessible Tourism, has been working on the project of inclusive and accessible tourism.
The Forest Trail Bliznec is the first educational trail in Croatia which is completely adapted to persons with specific access requirements. The trail follows the Bliznec stream on the Sljeme road to the Bliznec mill and allows individuals with physical disabilities to enjoy the Nature Park Medvednica. Additional accessible spaces on the trail are parking lots, information points and a restaurant.
More about Bliznec Forest Trail in the publication Accessibility and Inclusive Tourism Development in Nature Areas – Compendium of Best Practices page 22-25.
