Mobile cultures: Development possibilities for tourism in the Piran municipality
The planning proposals of the international urbanistic workshop Mobile cultures: development possibilities for tourism in the Piran municipality, can be grouped on three levels: conceptual, strategic and project oriented. Definitions of issues of particular workshop areas and pertaining solutions largely overlap with those in the project Portorož 220/2025: project of visions and strategic development of the leading Slovenian tourism centre, carried out in year 2000 by the International institute for tourism. The common general finding is that strategic public investments, despite initiatives by cities and the state, are still lagging behind in development and execution. The projects and their success in goal oriented planned development of tourism in the Piran municipality are above all dependent on grounded and timely strategic public investments.
