July the 10th, 2024 – Slovenian TV has criticised Croatian prices, claiming that holidaying in their neighbouring country has become far too expensive for most people.

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, on the show 24UR (24 Hours), which is broadcast daily on the Slovenian TV channel POP TV, a feature about prices on the Croatian coast was recently shown. More specifically, Slovenians have complained that summer holidays in neighbouring Croatia are now more expensive than in Spain, Portugal and Greece. Croatian prices, they noted, have risen significantly not only among accommodation providers and for food and drinks cafes, but also in shops.

As an example, they took the Bosnian influencer Mirza Mustafagić from Bosnia and Herzegovina, who announced on TikTok that he paid as much as 17 euros for some ice cream in Opatija. “After I saw how much ice cream costs in Opatija, I had to sit down,” said the influencer from Bosnia and Herzegovina, whose video on TikTok was viewed by almost one million people. Some agreed with him, others reminded him that said ice cream was purchased in a five-star hotel, and not “out in Opatija” as he packaged the situation.

This isn’t the only example of Slovenian TV and Slovenians in general coming down hard on Croatian prices. “A pancake with hazelnut spread, served on a plastic plate, on the Makarska Riviera will cost you five euros. If you want a sunbed and a parasol, you’re looking at paying 25 to 30 euros,” Slovenian TV stated.

“Not only are foreign visitors getting sick of this, but the Croats themselves are also slowly starting to have enough of it – they’re sick of having thinner wallets every single time they leave a shop. Everything is expensive, nothing has become cheaper,” added the Slovenians, after which they compared Croatian prices with other popular summer destinations across the Mediterranean, reports Večernji list.

“The German Federal Statistical Office has calculated that, for example, in Turkey they pay 41 percent less for a night in a hotel or a meal in a restaurant than at home, in Spain 26 percent, in Greece 23 percent. In Croatia, it’s only 18 percent less than in Germany. Which means that the latter is the most expensive for them among the aforementioned countries”, reported the Slovenian TV channel.
