As Barbara Ban/Novac writes, according to the Croatian National Tourist Board (CNTB/HTZ), there are about ten thousand guests in Croatia, of which six thousand are foreigners, and given the circumstances and restrictions on international travel, no significant tourist traffic is expected during the month of December, although some hotels, camps and household facilities will still continue to operate regardless of the situation.

Most tourists are currently in Zagreb, Vir, Split, Rijeka, Dubrovnik and Pula.

According to data from the eVisitor system, from the beginning of this year to the end of November, 7.7 million tourists visited Croatia, realising slightly more than 54 million overnight stays, which is 50 percent of the results recorded during the same period back in 2019.
