Our guests know him as the host of Bosutica, and now all of you can get to know him a little bit better.
Dobrosav is celebrating 30 years of entrepreneurship this year.
In 1992, he opened his own agency that sold application software and also provided bookkeeping services to small businesses.
From that business, in 1994, the company “Teodora” was born, which later developed into the production and sale of footwear. The company grew and developed and at one point employed 40 workers. After 15 years of business, it was time to move on, given the increasingly challenging conditions in the footwear production and sales market.
In 2015, together with his wife Sanja, who recognized the potential of the estate, they bought a household in Bosuta. After the renovation of the property, they recognized the opportunity to engage in rural tourism and after 4 years of work on the facilities, Bosutica was officially open for tourists in 2019.
