Primary data has been collected from users of thermal baths and forest areas. This data collection focused on the expectation, experiences, and benefits guests may (or may not) gain during and as a result of their visit. The data collection took place at the pilot destination locations. The methodology consists of two parts: primary (questionnaire or survey) and secondary research (earlier studies and results). We established how natural elements (e.g., thermal resources, nature reserve, open space) impact on guests.

Different tree species and their compounds at Fruška Gora mountain
Variability of different tree species and different compounds in tree species of Fruška Gora mountain and its possibilities for health improvement therapies. The method for this research includes date literature review, literature, and on-site research of the population of tree species in 3 different localities at Fruška Góra and collecting tree samples: representative conifers and broad-leaved trees from these localities will be selected and samples of leaves (mainly), buds and branches. The samples will be taken in two periods of time during the reporting period 4. These samples will be analyzed to determine their contents considering the VOCs, phenolic compounds, and essential oils. If there is an occurrence of information that could potentially have a high social and economic impact on partner countries and the EU, these data will be published online with open access. The obtained results of conducted research will be distributed as a paper in scientific journals or conference proceedings, and the accessibility of this information will depend on the publisher’s rules and regulations.
Marketing plan for developing tourism in the region
The integrated marketing strategy for the tourist destination aims to give a detailed overview of the current situation of the tourist sector in the program area and, based on that, create guidelines for the further development and improvement of the tourist destination of the Forest Selfness Center in Šatrinci created within the "NATESS" project. The five-year action plan, which is an integral part of the strategy, contains a list of proposed activities with a timeline and indicators, based on which the destination will be promoted and thus improve the tourism offer of the region covered by the project.
Given that the goal of the project is to improve the tourist offer of the program region, the Strategy directly contributes to its realization through the creation of a unique tourist offer and provides guidelines for its promotion on the global tourism market.
