Total Croatia News

Updated on:

Just four days before it is scheduled to open, the level of interest in the new concept of tourism has been made public. As we reported a week ago, Digital Nomad Valley Zadar is opening its doors at the Falkensteiner Borik resort in Zadar, catering to digital nomads through the winter and beeyond. You can learn more details from last week’s announcement.

Co-founder of the project, Mario Mrksa, kindly gave TCN an interview the following day, in which he expressed his hope that at least 30 digital nomads would take part in the initial phase. 

So, is Mario going to be satisfied with the interest so far? From his LinkedIn update a few minutes ago, things seem to be going rather well. Here it is in full.


Firstly, I would like to thank everyone for giving such wonderful feedback for this initiative 

There are more and more #digitalnomads and #remoteworkers applying Digital Nomad Valley every day!

Within a week, we have received 89 applications from 30 different countries! As expected, United States and United Kingdom are taking the lead.

Top countries:
USA: 22
UK: 15
Germany: 6
Poland: 5
Canada: 4

Proud to say that we have applicants from all continents!

Some other interesting facts:

The youngest applicant is 22 and oldest 61 years old wow!

59% want to come alone, 18.5% with a love partner and others with family or group of friends.

20% have said that they need help with getting digital nomad staying permit and 40% said “maybe” Jan de Jong.

We already have digital nomads coming next week 

We are collecting even more stats, if there will be interest I can share some more

Great stuff. I spoke to Mario just now to get his reaction:

“The first reaction is amazing! The initial number of applicants within the first week and hundreds of praises from everyone around the world, it sure does feel like we’re on the right track with our Work Remotely Croatia initiative!”
