Construction of new passenger terminal in Zadar's Gazenica port begins

President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic laid the foundation stone for a new passenger terminal in Zadar's Gazenica port on Monday.

The construction of the terminal will provide a boost not just to the local tourist industry and job creation but also to other development projects in the city and the county. It will enable the arrival of more ferries and cruise ships, the president said.

"I believe in Croatian tourism and think that the number of such vessels will further increase as logistical conditions are fulfilled," Grabar-Kitarovic said.

The third and final stage of the project includes the construction of a terminal measuring 24,537 square metres with supporting infrastructure and parking lots. The work is to be completed in 14 months, in early 2018, and the value of the third stage of the project is 25 million euros exclusive of VAT. The creditor bank is the German KfW Development Bank and the work will be carried out by Austria's Strabag and its partners.
