The latest issue of the influential French daily newspaper Le Figaro in its weekly supplement Le Figaro Magazine published a large report on 11 pages about the beauties of the Kvarner islands - Losinj, Cres and Susak.
The reportage was written by a long time reporter Jean-Louis Tremblais and one of the best French photographers Eric Martin. Last year this duo was rewarded with the traditional award Zlatna penkala/grand prix by the Croatian Tourist Board for the best written material and the best published reportage about Sinjska Alka.
This year's reportage of the French duo titled ''Losinj and Cres, the archipelago of the Golden Fleece'' has emphasized stunning beauties of the Kvarner islands. Fascinated by the beauty of the islands, this journalistic duo compared them to a pearl necklace that adorns the bay of Kvarner. In the richly illustrated reportage they have also recommended places to stay in, restaurants with indigenous gastronomic delicacies and activities that should be on visitor's ''must do'' list. The French journalists have also recommended a visit to the recently opened the Museum of Apoxyomenos.
Le Figaro Magazine is one of the most influential magazines in France with a circulation of more than 400,000 copies and 2 million readers.
However, some of the French influential media were also fascinated by the Croatian islands. A report about the island of Losinj was recently published in the cult magazine Telerama Sortir. In an article ''Happy as Apoxyomenos'' theFrench journalist Isabelle Alvaresse announced the return of the famous sculpture on its island.
This weekly magazine from Paris has a circulation of 230,000 copies, the average readership of the printed edition is around 1 million readers, whilst the average readership of the online edition is around 3 million readers. Surely, great tourist promotion for Croatia.
