When foreign tourists staying in the Palace Judita Heritage Hotel in Split come by sea to the Dalmatia region, they will be welcomed by a 33-year old Andrija Prostran in the ferry port.
Young Andrija will take their luggage, say a joke or two, and lead surprised guests towards the Renaissance palace in which they will spend an unforgettable vacation.
With his excellent service he has fully ''disarmed'' at least 600 people so far considering the fact that just as many times his name was mentioned in the reviews and comments of Tripadvisor users. Therefore, this world popular travel website nominated Andrija as the first Croat in the category of the Best hotel employee in 2016, the title of which he was especially pleased.
''To be honest, this notification about my nomination came in the middle of the tourist season when I simply didn't have enough time to realize what was going on. But, I'm very proud of it, it is so wonderful to get such recognition from guests. Regardless of whether I win or not, this is the best feedback on everything I have done for guests'', commented Andrija.
