'Split is a hit, come to Brodosplit'

While many primary schools, secondary schools, and universities in Split visit the shipyard, it has also drawn in visitors from educational institutions in Benkovac, Zadar, Dubrovnik, Brač, Korčula, Jastrebarsko, and Zagreb.

Both foreign and domestic travel agencies include a visit to Brodosplit in their offer, and the number of visitors year after year is constantly increasing. The greatest interest has been expressed by guests from Slovenia, but there also arrivals from Austria, France, Germany, Belgium, Switzerland and the Czech Republic. Most recently, there have even been individual visits from citizens of the United States, Australia, Brazil, Israel, and Poland.

Brodosplit spans over half a million square meters, and unlike other shipyards in Europe, at Brodosplit you can experience and become familiar with the complexities of the process of construction of the ships from distribution and cutting steel to the assembly on the slipway.

During the two-hour tour, the visitor is first introduced to the different models of the ships, with more than 70 pieces in the 'Museum of the shipyard'. From there, visitors pot on protective helmets and are taken on a walk through the production areas to see the new ships being built. To the delight of many visitors, they are able to see projects that include the construction of the steel floodgates that are to be installed in Mouth of Malamocco, Chioggia and San Nicolo which are lagoon inlets leading to Venice, with the purpose of stopping the influence of the tide on the City of Venice, and the largest sailing ship in the world whose launch is scheduled for June 10th this year.
