SUMMARY

Nautical tourism is well developed in the Adriatic coast but there are no tourist nautical services on the river waterways in Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina. The Sava Navigo Project addresses this problem by setting up foundations that will allow development of nautical tourism on the Sava River by developing a nautical chart atlas with instructions for safe navigation on the Sava River waterway with potential obstacles and hazards along the river identified for tourists. Furthermore, the project plans to facilitate simplification of cross-border procedures for tourist vessels by providing an analysis of the existing procedures and recommendations for their simplification which will then be proposed to the relevant authorities. Ultimately, the project will contribute to creation of Posavina regional identity and promotion of tourist offer and products of the Posavina region by unifying the existing fragmented tourist offers under one name – the tourist offer of Posavina.
