These results are an excellent indicator of the interest in Croatia, which is important for further stimulating year-round business, Minister Nikolina Brnjac said in a press release.
This year to date, we have recorded 10 million nights almost a month earlier than last year, she said, adding that the value of fiscalised receipts was HRK 1.2 billion higher than in the first five months of 2019.
According to the national tourist board, Croatia logged 2.9 million arrivals in the first five months of this year and nearly 10 million nights, up by 175% and 153% on the year, respectively. This was 77% of the arrivals and 88% of the nights logged in the first five months of the record year 2019.
The most numerous were domestic tourists, followed by Germans, Austrians, Slovenians and Britons.
