Millionth Overnight Stay in Dubrovnik – 5 Days Earlier than in 2018

Total Croatia News

According to the Croatian tourist registration platform eVisitor, which is used by hotels and private accommodation renters, the millionth overnight stay in Dubrovnik was registered on June the 1st this year.

Dubrovački vjesnik reports that it’s five days earlier than that benchmark number was achieved last year (or, of course, any previous year, as Dubrovnik as well as Croatia have been on an upward trend for a long time now). The system does not include nautical tourists who spend their nights on the boats.

Almost 400,000 tourists stayed in Dubrovnik in the first five months of 2019, which is over 30% more than during the same period last year. The largest number of registered guests arrived to Dubrovnik from the United Kingdom, the US, Germany, France, Croatia (!), Finland, Spain, Bosnia, Korea and Canada. Just a bit more than half of all tourists arriving in Dubrovnik in that period stayed in hotels, which also marks significant growth for them.

Even May has seen major growth when compared to last year: 10% more people came to Dubrovnik in May, and there were more than 2% more overnight stays spent in the town.

And with the certain reported negative tendencies that are often mentioned when discussing tourism in Croatia in 2019, and keeping in mind that the weather this spring has been extremely tourist-unfriendly (to say the least), such growth (both in terms of arrivals and overnight stay in Dubrovnik) can be seen as a very positive sign. It is also important to keep in mind that these statistics are imperfect (as statistics almost always are), as we’ve previously described on TCN.
