While the official confirmation of participation of Croatia at Eurovision 2022 is still awaited we’ve got news about upcoming Dora. As eurosong.hr reports the Croatian broadcaster HRT is already making plans for the preparation of the next editon of Dora. Director of the Opatija festival, Ernie Gigante Dešković was a guest in a Croatian morning show “Dobro jutro Hrvatska! and has revealed that HRT has agreed on a new long-term household contract with the city of Opatija regarding the organization of the Music Days of Croatian Radio and Television, and that Dora will be organized in Opatija.
I deeply believe that it has great significance. Namely, our cooperation with HRT is really praiseworthy and excellent and I am using this opportunity to point that out. Such events are very valuable and important for us because they actually put the value of those events that take place in Opatija at the national level.
