Together with Italy, Croatia is the most sought-after destination for Austrians travelling by car, said the director of the Croatian National Tourist Board’s (HTZ) office in Vienna Branimir Tončinić. He added that 49% of Austrians travel with their own transport.
In 2019, more than 1.4 million Austrians visited Croatia, generating 7.7 million bed nights.
Tončinić said that in the first 15 days of January, there was an increase of 27% in arrivals and 18% increase in bed nights from Austria compared to the same period last year.
The fair in Vienna is expected to attract more than 160,000 visitors.
This week, from 15 to 19 January, HTZ will attend the 50th Vakantiebeurs tourism fair in Utrecth, which is the largest tourism fair in the Netherlands.
Last year, almost 500,000 Dutch tourists visited Croatia, generating 3 million overnight stays and HTZ believes that a positive trend might be witnessed this year from that market.
