As Morski writes, after two uncertain pandemic-dominated years filled with numerous epidemiological restrictions, lockdowns and last minute rule introductions, tourism has well and truly returned to the Croatian coast with better results than many could have ever initially expected. Down in Dubrovnik-Neretva County, tourism companies and employees are busy rubbing their hands with satisfaction because their results in the first half of the year are an enomous 227% better than they were this time last year.

During the month of June 2022, there were 239,603 arrivals and 1,037,414 overnight stays registered in the area of ​​Dubrovnik-Neretva County. The most overnight stays were realised by guests from the rest of Europe, such as the United Kingdom, Germany, Poland and from other parts of Croatia. There were also a significant number realised by visitors from more distant markets such as the United States of America.

From the beginning of this year to the end of June, 1,978,615 overnight stays were realised in Dubrovnik-Neretva County. When compared to the same period back in the pandemic-dominated year of 2021, 227% more overnight stays were realised. The most overnight stays from January to the end of June were realised by tourists from the European countries of the United Kingdom, Germany, the rest of Croatia, France and Poland. Following closely after European tourists came the Americans.

Compared to the pre-pandemic, record year of 2019 to which we’re always comparing things to, there was an increase in overnight stays from the domestic market as well as from Ireland and Poland, while a huge number of overnight stays came from European countries including the United Kingdom with 70%, 80% came from Germany, 81% came from France, and 75% came from across the Atlantic Ocean – the United States of America.
