Hotel Kurija Janković from Virovitica, a heritage hotel or a four-star heritage hotel, received great recognition, the most important of its guests who are the best and most relevant critics. It is the first guest recognition from the Booking.com Guest Review Awards 2017 with a high score of 9.2, and recently the hotel was also included in Fodor’s Travel Guidebook, a publication of the world’s largest publisher of travel guides.”In July last year, on the recommendation of the travel agency Boho Travel Art, the Janković Curia was visited by Andrea MacDonald, a tourist journalist of Fodor’s Travel, who collected information on tourist attractions in Slavonia for the new edition of “Croatia 2018 Guidebook”. On that occasion, the entire offer of the Janković Curia was presented to her, its history and plans for the future were told, and in cooperation with Nippy Adventures, a bike tour along the Drava River was made on electric bicycles, which are usually offered by the hotel, thus creating a complete cycling experience.”Points out Sanja Sudar, head of the Janković Curia.Thus, the heritage hotel will be on the list of recommended accommodation facilities in this part of Croatia, while the cycling tourist offer is rated as excellent. As Fodor’s is the world’s largest publisher of tourist guides in English, whose observations and recommendations have significantly influenced the choice of vacation spot for more than 75 million of its readers for 20 years, this is more than a great advertisement, and the recommendation will be visible in print. an edition of the guide that will be available for purchase on Amazon, as well as on Fodor’s website. “The great news that has arrived at the Janković Curia these days, about the inclusion in Fodor’s guide as a recommended accommodation facility in this part of Croatia, certainly means a lot to us. That recommendation will be visible in the print edition of the guide, which will be available for purchase on Amazon, as well as on Fodor’s website. Whether the hotel will be included in the offer depended exclusively on the hotel reviews and the actual experience of the journalist. So, not knowing if we would eventually find ourselves in the company of the elect, we waited impatiently for this good news. The exceptional quality of accommodation in the historical heritage, the combination of our electric bicycles and the interestingly designed Drava route of the cycling guide rounded off the visit of Fodor’s team and showed that we definitely deserve our place on the tourist map of Croatia and the world.”Sudar points out and adds that they offer bed and breakfast, and that they refer guests to local restaurants that work with local ingredients and indigenous dishes.The magic formula for success is very simple. Let’s be what we are, sell an authentic and home-made story and look at the guests not as a number, but as people who came on vacation and met and experienced something new. “The way we welcomed the representative of the Fodor guide is identical to the way we usually greet our guests. We wanted the experience of staying in our area to be authentic, without pushing into the offer of some things that are not natural and characteristic for us. The enthusiasm was first aroused by the Curia as such – a beautiful, elegantly restored 19th-century building that simply radiates uniqueness. ” says Sudar and adds that such objects also bring with them interesting historical sketches that everyone from the Janković Curia team is happy to pass on to visitors.Sanja Sudar: We are also aware that the hotel is not the sole reason for the arrival of the guest, but it is the destination where it is located Hotel Kurija Janković has 18 comfortable double rooms, and guests have at their disposal a coffee bar, restaurant, meeting room, conference hall, souvenir shop and bicycles. The hotel is located at the place where Slavonia embraces Podravina and in the environment of the UNESCO Transboundary Biosphere Reserve Mura-Drava-Danube. Visitors to the hotel are half domestic and half foreign guests, mostly from Austria, Germany, Hungary, Slovakia and the Czech Republic, and last year there was a growth of over 200% in overnight stays. I would like to emphasize that the main focus must be on authenticity, destination as well as the focus on local and traditional gastronomy. It is in this field that they score at the Kurija Janković Hotel. Also, most hoteliers have no way of understanding that the motive for coming is not accommodation, but a quality, diverse and authentic experience of the destination.The atmosphere in Kurija Janković is always homely and pleasant, we always try to respond to every request of the guest with a smile and provide him with a special experience in which he will feel appreciated and welcome, not just as one client in a row, said Sanja Sudar. the word “domestic” runs through our entire business and guests are increasingly recognizing it. “Homemade, homemade, homemade! The hotel serves a traditional Slavonian-Podravina breakfast prepared from local ingredients, and the offer of the coffee bar consists of local wines, liqueurs, teas, natural juices, craft beers, and in local restaurants freshly caught Drava fish is prepared in the traditional local way. We believe that the destination needs to be experienced with all your senses, and the inclusion of local producers in the hotel offer was a completely logical and correct choice for us. We are also aware that the hotel is not the sole reason for the arrival of the guest, but it is the destination in which it is located. We are proud of the untouched nature and richness of flora and fauna of the continental part of Croatia, which tells its own amazing story. Guests of our hotel regularly use bicycles as well as electric ones that we offer”Sudar points out.The message and business philosophy is clear.By the way, the hotel opened its doors to its first guests in 2016, when it got a whole new glow from the old ruins. In the first year of operation, they had an average of 66 nights per month, while last year there was an increase of 220% and an average of 212 nights per month, which is proof of how personalized approach and attitude towards guests is highly valued and respected. That should be imperative. “One of the problems of this part of Croatia is certainly the lack of organized tourism in the form of agency tourist packages, so all the results achieved are individual efforts by hotels and our local caterers and family farms with which we strive to create an attractive tourist product. We hope that the entire tourist offer of the continental part of Croatia will be more visible because we have something to offer with its content and quality. Cycling is certainly one of the directions we have chosen because Virovitica-Podravina County, which through EU projects has marked five hundred kilometers of bike trails in our hilly-plain area, has given us a good foundation for the development of this type of tourism. The experience is what the guest brings home, and we strive to make it truly memorable and special”Says Sudar and adds at the end that they are happy to wait for every occasional traveler and will be happy to create a personalized experience for each guest.Yes, they work and fight and live tourism 0/24. If you need advice on how to extend the tourist season, ask our tourist heroes from the continent, who work all year round. If I can do it on the continent, then why not at sea.Small family and boutique hotels must be our main base, at least in my opinion, because they employ local people, use local food, have a more intimate and homely atmosphere, and they are the ambassadors of our tourism and work all year round. Of course, we also need large hotels, but certainly as a development concept based on small family hotels, it is sustainable and more efficient. It is private renters with six or more rooms who should be encouraged to take this path, to become small family hotels with a story.In the tourism development strategy, we need 1.000 small family resorts, not 1.000 tourist resorts.&lt;/p&gt;<br /><br />

DG: 100 percent. You can get burned out in a company like the WWE, whether that be the travel or creative direction. We’ve seen it over the years. But when you step away from it and go someplace where it is more relaxed you remember why you fell in love with it in the first place. SN: Where do you see yourself and Karl at this time next year?DG: Talk N Shop A Mania 37, I hope! I’m hoping that we can come out of this pandemic and have shows with fans. We thrive off of their energy, whether you love or hate us. We just want to entertain fans live again. Gallows sat down with Sporting News to plug some holes from their revealing interview, including what the Bullet Club thought of The OC, tag team wrestling in WWE, when they will return to New Japan Pro Wrestling and the twists and turns leading up to their debut at Slammiversary. MORE: WWE PPV schedule 2020: Dates, locations for every announced 2020 wrestling eventSporting News (SN): What’s the feedback been like after the Talk ‘N Shop livestream?Doc Gallows (DG): The feedback was actually great. As far as the negative stuff about the WWE that I said specifically, it truly is water under the bridge, but I felt like I had to say it. And then we were really excited to announce the move to sign with IMPACT Wrestling and, of course, Talk ‘N Shop A Mania, which we’re super excited about. It feels like wrestling got a shot in the arm with some fresh new stuff that’s coming up and I’m very happy to be a part of all that.SN: I want to fill in a few holes from the show. One is whether you were at all surprised that Triple H and Vince McMahon had no idea of your accomplishments in New Japan Pro Wrestling prior to signing you.DG: I think they knew we had some buzz because of the Bullet Club so I figure that they saw it as a chance to scoop up two Bullet Club guys who were making some waves in NJPW. WWE has historically gone after guys who are doing well outside of the WWE. It doesn’t necessarily mean they’ll be handled the same way when they get inside because, as history has shown us, WWE likes to create their own stars, not necessarily work on previously existing ones. I don’t know what they expected with us. But you got to take what’s handed to you and do your best with it. SN: How much WWE programming did you watch before you signed?DG: Not a lot. We were in our own bubble at New Japan because we were so busy.SN: The reason I ask is that the prevailing thought has been that WWE has little interest in the tag team division. But, at the same time, it appeared that there was a resurgence when you arrived as well as teams like The Revival, The New Day, The Usos, etc. DG: For sure, man! We thought there was definitely hope but whenever we got a glimmer of that it went away. They are a company that believes the drawing power is in the singles rivalries and that’s their thing. But tag team wrestling does matter, it just happens to matter on a different channel. SN: When it was decided that you, Karl and AJ would form The Original Club as a shot at the Bullet Club, did you talk to the friends in New Japan about it?DG: I talk to the Young Bucks, Tama Tonga and Bad Luck Fale all the time. When we told them about The OC they said “good for you guys.” We always support each other. They had high hopes for it, as did we.SN: You were very close to joining AEW and ended up burning them by resigning with WWE. How has communication been since then?DG: I’m so proud of those guys. When The OC thing started and we saw the creative thing for Karl and me, we texted them and said “Well, we f—ked up. We made a bad decision.” Everybody is over it now and we can laugh about it. We knew that Cody, the Young Bucks, Kenny Omega and the rest wouldn’t let that fail. But we didn’t know it would be such a smashing success. It’s good for pro wrestling.SN: Was it also good to see talent like EC3 and Eric Young come home to IMPACT considering how seldom they were used in the WWE?DG: EC3 looked like a million bucks and gave a hell of a promo when he returned. IMPACT knew how to play to his strengths and it was great to see him back. Fans are smart now and they understand talent thrive somewhere else but haven’t necessarily been given a platform elsewhere. Eric Young is a perfect example of a guy who was on top at IMPACT and didn’t get the opportunity to show what he had in WWE. It’s good for him to be home. They aren’t a bunch of WWE rejects, they have succeeded outside of WWE.SN: You were also joining IMPACT at a time of uncertainty and plenty of changes happened before Slammiversary aired. Tessa Blanchard left the company and the likes of Joey Ryan and Michael Elgin were also removed due to the #SpeakingOut campaign of women addressing sexual abuse and assault in pro wrestling. DG: Definitely. I talked to Scott D’Amore every day and would check-in when something would pop up because it felt like their creative was getting rocked every week. But I think with us teasing our arrival and all of the surprises it helped build the buzz so that we could trend No. 1 on Twitter the night of Slammiversary. It’s a fun challenge to have because we are not the WWE and we have our own mountains to climb. We’re up for the challenge.SN: When will you be returning to New Japan?DG: We’re just waiting for the world to open up. We’re trying to figure out dates so that we can make our big return. It’s going to be a big deal when we come back. What you’re going to get is the old school Gallows and Anderson that made you like us as a team. The Disneyworld feel is gone. We’re back to doing what we do best. SN: But the Bullet Club is completely different now…DG: Yeah it is! I didn’t see the EVIL thing coming at all. The landscape of the Bullet Club is totally different. We’ll see who is welcoming and who is not. But it’s been a long time since we’ve been together and I’m excited about it. I was blown away by EVIL joining. They don’t have a lot of bad ideas over there so we’ll have to see if he can step up and how this all plays out. The long game is where it’s at and if you look at Gedo’s booking. You may not get to where the viewer expects to go but it’s always surprising and enticing. It’s an old-school approach that works. I love watching things unfold slowly and not the crash TV that you sometimes see in the WWE. They will turn on something quick, which I don’t fully understand. SN: Let’s talk Talk ‘N Shop A Mania. When did this idea originally enter your mind?DG: Well, I just really felt that the first season of Southpaw Wrestling thing we did at WWE was really good and the second one wasn’t. There wasn’t a lot of interest in it anymore and there were a lot of changes. I feel like they stole my Sex Ferguson thing and made a show about it. But there was never an ending to it. We just came off of a cinematic match with The Undertaker and we’re fired 12 days later. If we don’t spoof this, we’re complete idiots. Four days after we got released I told my friends that we had to do a pay-per-view and I went and wrote it out at my dining room table. I had to do it whether it was a hit or a massive failure. SN: Was everyone behind this from the start?DG: No. There’s a behind the scenes documentary coming out and you will see a lot of guys show up at my house not knowing why the hell they were there. But they are my buddies so I flew them down, gave them a payday and told them we’re going to have some fun. A lot of this will be you seeing television wrestling characters that normally play something serious stepping completely out of that and doing something different. It’s a parody. It’s meant to make you smile and take 90 minutes out of this crazy world around us and enjoy the follies of professional wrestling. I love serious pro wrestling but I love this side, too. I mean, the main event is a Boner Yard Match so you can’t expect anything serious. This is also TV-MA and not meant for the kids. If you buy it and hate it, you’re only out of $14.95 so it’s okay.SN: Has this ultimately recharged your battery? On April 4, 2020, Doc Gallows and Karl Anderson were involved in the most talked-about match at WrestleMania when AJ Styles lost to The Undertaker in a Boneyard Match. Surprisingly, just 12 days later, WWE released Gallows and Anderson amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. The duo reemerged on July 18 as the newest signees of IMPACT Wrestling at their Slammiversary pay-per-view — but not before they held court with a revealing interview on their Talk ‘N Shop podcast that pulled the curtain back on their time with the WWE, discussed joining IMPACT Wrestling and their own upcoming pay per view Talk ‘N Shop A Mania that takes place on Aug. 1.
