January 3, 2019 – According to the data from eVisitor, which contains tourist traffic realized in commercial and non-commercial facilities, the Sinj Tourist Board has provided a review of the tourist results for Sinj, Dicmo, Hrvace, and Otok in 2018. 

Based on the data, Sinj, Dicmo, Hrvace, and Otok recorded the following tourist traffic from 1 January to 31 December 2018: in 95 accommodation facilities (1 hotel and 94 private accommodation facilities: apartments, villas and holiday homes) there were 15,427 guests, who realized 40,267 overnights. This is an increase compared to the same period last year by as much as 14.07% in arrivals, and 19.21% in overnight stays.

The most significant number of arrivals and overnight stays was realized in the city of Sinj, with 13,341 visitors and a total of 24,106 overnight stays. According to the structure of the guests, the largest number of overnight stays were made by domestic guests (10,276), and foreign guests mostly came from Germany (9,031, up 53%) followed by Korea (3,416, up 112%) France (1,512, up by 21%), the UK (1,220, up by 32%), Austria (1,183, up by 125%), Belgium (1,007, up by 59%), then Denmark, Poland, Norway, Italy, Romania and Sweden.


In the Dicmo Municipality, there were 1,195 arrivals with 10,782 nights, in the Municipality of Hrvace there were 744 arrivals with 4,147 overnights, and the Municipality of Otok recorded 147 arrivals with 1,232 overnight stays.

From this data, it is clear that guests in the area of Sinj stayed on average for two days, while the holiday homes in Sinj, Dicmo, Hrvace, and Otok see guests for an average of seven days.

These data are in favor of quality preparations, marketing activities as well as quality tourist offers. The trend of increasing arrivals and overnight stays has contributed to the joint cooperation of all the stakeholders in tourism who, following the trends of supply and demand and the habits of guests who increasingly want to explore the destination they are traveling to (and becoming familiar with its tradition and everything that it can provide), offer an authentic, unique tourist product.


In 2018, the City of Sinj and the Dicmo, Hrvace and Otok Municipalities boasted 95 accommodation facilities, which had 241 accommodation units with a total of 678 permanent beds, which is an increase of 51% in new buildings, 21.72% in accommodation units and 34% in permanent beds. The increase in the opening of new accommodation facilities should also be noted. Thus, there are 12 in the town of Sinj, twelve, five in Hrvace, ten in Dicmo and five accommodation facilities in Otok that were opened this year. 

In addition to the data mentioned above on recorded arrivals and overnight stays in the area of Sinj, we must also highlight the impressive figures of daily arrivals of guests.

The number of daily arrivals is highlighted during the Velika Gospa, where over 150,000 pilgrims visited the area, and the Sinjska Alka Museum, which recorded more than 25,000 visitors.

Forecasts for 2019 are also optimistic as the results of 2018 confirm that Croatia is one of the most popular destinations on the world tourist market, and according to the announcements, this trend continues on both the national and the local level.
