Dubrovnik and Monterey Strengthen Bonds: Mayors Discuss Tourism and Cultural Collaboration

Written by  Mar 22, 2024

The Mayor of Dubrovnik, Mato Franković, received today an official visit from the Mayor of the American sister city Monterey, Tyler Williamson. The two cities share a 17-year-long friendship, culminating in the collaboration of the Dubrovnik Half Marathon ''Du Motion,'' created with the assistance and cooperation of the international Big Sur Marathon held in Monterey.

Discussions also revolved around other potential collaborations, particularly in the field of music. The previously initiated initiative for collaboration with the Monterey Jazz Festival was revisited, which was halted due to the pandemic.

"It's great to see what has been accomplished here in terms of tourism. It's something we share, and I believe we could collaborate in the service industry," said Mayor Williamson. In this regard, Mayor Franković acquainted him with the project ''Regional Competence Center in Tourism and Hospitality,'' in which the City of Dubrovnik participates as a partner.
