That project is now at the level of recommendations. The novel coronavirus is still very much among us and that’s why we must all continue to make sure we do adhere to the necessary (remaining) measures,” said Croatian Tourism Minister Nikolina Brnjac.
She also pointed out that we must be careful not to find ourselves in the dark red zone on the ECDC map once again, which would be an enormous blow to what currently seems like an extremely promising main tourist season.
“Over recent years, we’ve proven to tourists and residents of this country alike with this project that we are a responsible tourist destination.
