Zagreb, August 24, 2020 – Croatia is trying to save its tourist season, so they are regularly sending us their data, and it doesn’t look much better than the articles in the media, said Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán on Monday.

As Večernji writes, the Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said there are only a few more days of summer holidays left, so he advised everyone who wants and has an opportunity to go to the sea, to do so immediately, because, from September 1, restrictions on travel to countries south of Hungary will be introduced again.

The Hungarian Prime Minister revealed this in today’s interview for Hungarian radio. Thus, without explicitly mentioning Croatia, he indirectly announced putting our country on the red list before the beginning of the school year.

“I don’t want to interfere in personal lifestyle choices, habits and plans of Hungarians, but with due respect and caution, I ask everyone to not organize trips or book holidays in countries south of Hungary and not to consider themselves as tourists because it would be contrary to the protective measures at the borders,” said Orbán. He added that in assessing the situation in some countries, including Croatia, they are not guided by the media, but have established direct contact with Austrians and Croats.

“The situation in most countries is getting worse compared to Hungary. The warning that the import of the infection poses the biggest threat to Hungary is not only valid but also more valid than before. The summer indeed lasts and people are on vacation, but soon it will be over and the school will start. For the families, it is the most important that schools and kindergartens function normally”, said the Hungarian Prime Minister.

Orbán, as well as the Hungarian Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó, was seen spending his vacation on a yacht in Croatia.
