“Demand for Croatia as a responsible tourist destination is constantly growing, which is why the daily number of tourists has increased by about 200,000 since the beginning of June, and 330,000 new tourists came to Croatia during this extended weekend alone. A good epidemiological situation remains crucial, and in the months ahead, we, therefore, call on all tourism workers, tourists, and all our fellow citizens to continue to adhere to epidemiological measures. Only in this way can we maintain the status of a safe destination and contribute to the best possible season because safe tourism is successful tourism”, said the Minister of Tourism and Sports Nikolina Brnjac.
From the beginning of the year until today, there have been 2 million arrivals and 8.4 million tourist nights in Croatia, i.e., a growth of 57 percent in arrivals and 58 percent in overnight stays compared to the same period in 2020.
“With about 4.4 million overnight stays in June, we exceeded the tourist turnover in the same period last year by more than 80 percent, and most arrivals are recorded from the markets where we are currently conducting our main call campaign this year. Trust me, I’ve been there “. Current numbers of tourists in the country show that Croatia is once again one of the hits and safest destinations in the Mediterranean. We are facing the main summer months in which we expect even more intensive tourist traffic. I once again call on our citizens and tourist workers to behave responsibly and adhere to the prescribed measures because the favorable epidemiological situation in the country is a basic prerequisite for a successful tourist season. community Kristjan Staničić.
