Visit to Sremska Mitrovica and Sid

On Tuesday, April 27, Minister of Trade, Tourism and Telecommunications Tatjana Matić visited Sremska Mitrovica and Sid at the invitation of NALED and Ethno Network, together with the wives of the American and Canadian ambassadors to Serbia, Anne Godfrey and Valerie Lane.

The immediate reason for the visit was the Easter exhibition of the members of our association "Golden Fleece of Sirmium" and a conversation with excellent felters who successfully apply the motifs of Solomon's knot and the Srem region on balls, mats, bags and other wool handicrafts. During the visit, they also discussed measures of support at the national and local level for craft associations in order to make authentic contents based on culture and heritage an integral part of our tourist offer and the impetus for local development and women's entrepreneurship.

The program of the visit also included a tour of the Imperial Palace of Sirmium, sex shop whose mosaics are a frequent inspiration for motifs on handicrafts. At the end of the day, the guests also visited the municipality of Sid, where they got acquainted with the impressive work of our painters Sava Shumanović and Ilija Basičević - Bosilj.
