Sammenlignet med italienerne er nordmenn blant dem som bryr seg minst om mat når de velger reisemål. Men når nordmenn reiser for matens skyld er det Roma og Paris som gjelder, skriver Travelnews.no

Det er det nettbaserte reisebyrået Expedia.no som har undersøkt reisevanene knyttet til mat og restaurantbesøk blant europeerne, ved å spørre 14 000 respondenter i 14 land. Den viser for øvrig at vi tror italienerne er dårligst på å gi driks (17 prosent). Her scorer imidlertid vi nordmenn høyt (tre prosent) – i gjennomsnitt.

Samtidig er Italia ifølge de spurte det landet i Europa som gir best restaurantservice, sammen med Frankrike. Sverige havner langt nede på listen med to prosent, mens Norge havner omtrent nederst, med én prosent, skriver Travelnews.

Hit reiser nordmenn når gode matopplevelser er fokus for reisen:

1. Roma
2. Paris
3. Barcelona
4. København
5. New York

Dette er byene som ikke nordmenn lar seg friste av når det gjelder mattopplevelser:

1. Helsinki
2. Hanoi
3. Tokyo
4. Hongkong
5. Stockholm

Hvilke land som er best på service, land som aldri gir driks, og hvilke land som lar maten styre ferievalget, kan du lese mer om i artikkelen på Travelnews.

Zagreb

Zagreb, capital city of Croatia, received more than a million tourists last year, This is even more than the number of visitors to Dubrovnik on the Adriatic coast, total-croatia.news reports.

In the first five months of 2016 the capital was visited by 337,300 tourists, a 6% increase over the same period last year and a 12% rise in overnight stays. The majority of visitors came from South Korea, Germany, USA, Italy and Bosnia and Herzegovina, Index reported on July 3.

Director of the Zagreb Tourism Board, Martina Bienenfeld, said the numbers are a result of the continuing work by the Zagreb tourism industry as well as city and state institutions. Thanks to numerous events Zagreb is a year-round destination.

“The city is awake, guests are increasing. Throughout the year we promote Zagreb on different tourism and congress fairs around the world and we made sure the story of Zagreb is heard by all ages and visitors in different platforms – from advertorial to mobile advertising and billboards to radio campaigns,” Bienenefeld said.

“We also published a special webpage detailing all events – concerts, exhibitions, film and street shows, all united under the Zagreb Summer Tour 2016 brand. The campaign took some two years to perfect.”

Besides different cultural and entertainment content, an important role in year-round tourism in Zagreb is congress tourism. Last year there were 233 business events, with 115 in the first five months of this year. According to data published by the International Congress and Convention Association, Zagreb has moved from the 79th to the 64th place out of 373 cities.

Etter Brexit: Spania vil ha delt suverenitet over Gibraltar med Storbritannia

www.hovedsteder.blogg.no is a Norway-based blog about the capitals of the world, with a focus on tourism and travel, the environment, diplomatic affairs and politics, lifestyle, culture and entertainment, food and drink.

Spanias regjering foreslår å dele suvereniteten over det britiske territoriet Gibraltar (bildet), på sørspissen av Spania, med Storbritannia etter at et flertall av britene stemte for å forlate EU. 

-Vår formel er britisk-spansk dele-suverenitet for en fast tidsperiode. sier Spanias utenriksminister Jose Manuel Garcia-Margallo til spansk radio.

Storbritannia var raskt ute og avviste forslaget.

20 145 av Gibraltars 24 117 stemmeberettigede avla stemme etter en valgkampanje som var totalt dominert av Remain, ledet an av Gibraltars regjeringssjef Fabian Picardo.

Som ventet ble det et valgskred for de som ville forbli i EU. 19 322 – 95,9 prosent, stemte for Remain, mens 823 – 4,1 prosent, stemte for Brexit.

Gibraltar har vært under britisk herredømme i langt over 300 år, og Spania har hele denne tiden forlangt å få området tilbake, noe som i lange perioder har ført til et svært kjølig forhold mellom regjeringene i Spania og Storbritannia, og også mellom kongehusene i de to landene.

Gibraltars erkebritiske innbyggere er nær 100 prosent pro-EU, slik som lokalregjeringen og territoriets politiske partier. De er skremte med tanke på hva som nå skjer ved en Brexit, der Gibraltar frykter at Spania skal stenge grensen og dermed kvele territoriets økonomi, der turisme, online gambling, handel, service, shipping og finans, og det britiske militære nærveret er viktige inntektskilder. 

Tusenvis av spanske statsborgere pendler inn til Gibraltar hver dag for å jobbe, fra, eller via den spanske grensebyen La Línea de la Concepción, som ligger kloss inntil Gibraltar og er den eneste grensekrysningen mellom Spania og Gibraltar.

Sist Spania stengte den 1,2 kilometer lange grensen var i 1969, da den spanske diktatoren, general Francisco Franco, stengte grensen i protest fordi Storbritannia hadde gitt Gibraltar indre selvstyre.

Stengingen varte helt til 1985, ti år etter Francos død.

Bildet er tatt fra Rock of Gibraltar, med La Linea de la Concepcion i bakgrunnen, og med hovedveien som krysser Gibraltars flyplass.

Kuriøst nok så krysser veien fra La Línea de la Concepción inn til Gibraltar, en vei med fire kjørefelt, Gibraltars flyplass, noe som er en attraksjon i seg selv…

Gibraltar er et selvstyrt, britisk oversjøisk territorium på sydspissen av Spania, og blir kalt Europas siste koloni, selv om det begrepet stort sett ikke lenger brukes. 

Gibraltar har et areal på  6,8 km2 – og har 33,000 innbyggere. Territoriet styres av en britisk guvernør utnevnt av Storbritannias regjering, et folkevalgt parlament og en lokal regjering, ledet av en Chief Minister. 

Gibraltar, som er med i EU, har fullt indre selvstyre, mens Storbritannia har ansvar for utenriks- og forsvarspolitikk. Gibraltars regjering har sine egne representasjonskontorer i London, Brussel og Washington DC.

After Brexit: Could London break away from the UK and become independent?

The only region in England and Wales to vote for Remain could become its own city state by 2035, analyst says, according to The Week website.

Calls have emerged for London to secede from the UK after the results of the EU referendum.

The capital of the United Kingdom resisted the national trend to become the only region in England and Wales to vote in favour of remaining in the European Union.

Remain won 2,263,519 votes in London, compared with 1,513,232 in favour of Leave. Now its residents are “venting their frustrations on social media with pleas to form an independent city state and stay in the EU”, the London Evening Standard reports.

A petition on Change.org says: “London is an international city, and we want to remain at the heart of Europe.”

It has so far gathered just 800 signatories, according to The Week.

Prior to the vote, Professor Tony Travers, of the London School of Economics, told the BBC that while the scenario is unlikely, it is far from impossible.

According to Travers, independence is not the only way London could continue to flex its muscle on a world stage. The city could follow New York’s example, he says, with a powerful mayor who operates independently from the national government.

Den Norske Opera & Ballett (bildet) i Oslo går i dundrende minus, melder NRK. Regnskapstallene for 2015 viser et underskudd på hele 67 millioner kroner, noe som i all hovedsak skyldes pensjonsutgifter.

Ifølge Finansavisen er de reelle pensjonskostnadene langt høyere enn det som er oppgitt av operaen.
