In the first half of August this year, there were 10% more overnight stays compared to 2019. The greatest interest was expressed in accommodation in higher categories, and accommodation in households has 28% more overnight stays than in 2019.

“We are counting more than 30% of overnight stays of our domestic guests this year compared to 2019, and the number of reservations for the winter period is noticeable, especially private accommodation of a higher category. In addition, accommodation is already being reserved for the New Year and school holidays,” said Petar Hrg, the Gorski Kotar Tourist Board director. 

Last week, the Gorski Kotar Tourist Board stated on that certain accommodation facilities of higher categories, especially holiday homes, are booked for 150 to 240 days a year.

“Gorski Kotar is the green lungs of Croatia, and we are strategically focused on preserving our natural values, which we defined in the Master Plan for Tourism Development. We want to enrich the experience of our visitors throughout the year by planning investments in tourist facilities. This will be reflected in the demographic picture and the turn towards tourism as one of the stronger levers of development in this area,” they said. 

Gorski Kotar’s local self-government units want to enrich the sports-recreational and winter tourist offer with already prepared projects.

The Gorski Kotar Tourist Board president and mayor of Fužine, David Bregovac, said that more and more guests want to spend their summer vacation in mountainous areas and that Gorski Kotar has an advantage – the proximity to the sea.

“Our goal is to use the potential of the year-round destination, and I hope that the County and the state will join us with significant investments,” said Bregovac, adding that Gorski Kotar is a safe region in which the epidemiological situation is systematically monitored.
