New Definition of Tourism

Osijek, regional capital of Slavonia, is known for many great things, but being tourist resort is not among them. That didn't prevent city administration from proclaiming it to be just that. The reason is the loophole that allows such cities and municipalities to have groceries stores open on Sundays. Being close to the borders of Serbia and Hungary allowed some of Osijek shopping malls to make good business due to cross-border shoppers. In normal circumstances nobody would call that tourism, but new definitions come handy in combating idiotic laws.

In the meantime, after some contradictory statements, Sanader's cabinet has announced that it would change said legislation allowing petrol stations to work 24 hours a day and lifting the limits on bakeries, family-owned and convenience stores.
