Exhibitions Square

When a tram carrying Kremenchug year 2.8 million passengers in many European countries to register before mayoral candidate cities, the future mayor of a mandatory special Commission takes a strict examination of the history of the city. We do not have. Nevertheless, the history of his native city need to know! Few of the Kremenchug contemporaries knew that in this picturesque city on the Dnieper River as far back as 1899 – one of the the first in Ukraine – operated electric streetcar, built and commissioned the Belgian public company. ‘Even then, at the Kremenchug appeared in the streets of support for the tram wires, light fine metal and wooden sheds stops, sweeping curves of tram journeys’ – so poetically wrote in his book ‘The streets of the old Kremenchug’ Alla Lushakova local historian. Tram depot and power station were at the the foot of the sand hills between the Rue St. Catherine (now named after Lenin) and Trinity Lane (Chkalova). Plant capacity was 4450 horsepower, barn consisted of 16 motor cars with open areas on the biaxial trolley.

The length of the tramway in 1917 was 12 kilometers. Kremenchuzhane at the time, probably did not like walking. For the year, on average transported 2.8 million passengers. There were three routes: the power – steamship dock in Ekaterininskaya, Kiev (now Pobedy), Malcev (now Pridneprovsky park, street does not exist). From power plant to steamship piers, through Ekaterininskaya, Exhibitions Square (Ul.Halamenyuka) and the Alexander Street (now Perovmayskaya) ran the second route.

The third took place again on the steamship piers in taverns (Shevchenko), Maltsev, Kiev, Merry (ul.1905 year), and Kherson Ukrainian street. Unfortunately, due to historical cataclysms, Kremenchug tram ceased to exist after 1917, during the chaos and confusion caused by the civil war in Ukraine. In 1926, urban public passenger transport was a bus. On the current plight of the Kremenchug trolley already tired of writing. Would not it be nice to see on the streets of the Kremenchug effervescent Belgian tram sample in 1899!

Maria Eugenia Corrales Manager

we inaugurated our cycle of interviews with Maria Eugenia Corrales, Manager of the Business Confederation of Tourism and Hospitality (CETEX). We aim at least once a month to interview relevant characters of the business world. What are the training needs most in demand by industry We speak of a highly diverse and, therefore, has characteristics and needs.If we look at the accommodation subsector materials demands more broadly, are those related to customer service, quality, new technologies and languages applied to tourism, especially Portuguese and English. As part of the subsector of the restoration is often preferred over actions related to performance in each of its business, such as room service and bar, wine tasting or cut ham. In any case, it is particularly important that any person performing their activity in front of a tourist establishment, have a basic understanding not only of the supply of its own establishment, but the supply of resources and tourism services from its environment next. What should improve in training that is offered to better meet these needs The hospitality-related occupations tend to have certain job characteristics, in terms of hours and shifts that make it difficult for staff to reconcile their work and training. For this reason, it should bring the learning to students, either through distance learning (for matters that they may say) or their own workplaces. How is the crisis affecting the sector of the Hospitality and Tourism in Extremadura We can say that the tourism sector is experiencing similar effects Extremadura other economic sectors in the region. During 2009 it has accentuated the decline in tourism demand started in mid 2008, the average stay has been reduced and there is greater sensitivity to price and a growing tendency for late bookings.While concern is the decline in overnight stays, it is even more cuts in average expenditure per tourist, and that is what most directly affects the profitability of and hence the development of the sector. What are the opportunities that may arise at this time for tourism in Extremadura The decline in disposable income in the Spanish families, to a fall of long trips out of our country, for an increase in domestic tourism and also for short breaks and getaways to nearby destinations. I think given the cyclical trend, Extremadura destination can be a reference for different types of demand, seeking other alternatives for entertainment and leisure. How do you see the future of tourism in our region In line with this, I am confident in the enormous potential of Extremadura, although I feel that we still have challenges to address.We must identify specifically what are the values that bring us a differential nature and selecting, in each case which is our target market to do it. It is essential to further the diversification of supply, based on multiple types of customers and know how to offer this added value that makes us unique from competition.
