ZAGREB, September 28, 2018 – Since the start of 2018 to 28 September, slightly over 100 million tourist overnight stays were registered in Croatia, which is a month earlier than in 2017, the Croatian Tourist Board (HTZ) reported on Friday.
The data collected by the eVisitor system includes statistics about overnight stays in hotels and other facilities as well as in marinas.
Tourism Minister Gari Cappelli and HTZ Managing Director Kristjan Staničić believes that the rising statistics are the outcome of better performance in shoulder seasons.
As many as 18 million tourists have visited Croatia so far this year, the most numerous being from Germany, Slovenia, Austria, Poland and the Czech Republic.
The most sought-after destinations were Dubrovnik, Rovinj, Poreč, Medulin and Split.
