With time, visitors are steadily increasing in Croatia. This year, major tourism companies, according to the Ministry of Tourism, plans to invest at least $571 million on travel sector of this region. Up to $151 million was invested in 2016 respectively. Between 2015 and 2016, tourism to vacation facilities and resorts alone increased to 3.3 percent, with the maximum travelers pouring in from the United Kingdom.
The Republic of Croatia, located in Eastern Europe, is famous for its long stretch of coastline on the Adriatic Sea and encompasses more than a thousand islands. The varied landscape of this region also crosses the Dinaric Alps. Zagreb, its inland capital, is well-known for its medieval Gornji Grad (Old Town) district and numerous museums. The major coastal city of Dubrovnik is home to many Gothic and Renaissance buildings.
Tauck, the operator of guided tours is taking complete advantage of the increased interest in travel to the region. The operator newly brought in three fresh itineraries to the region. Travel Agent talked with Tom Armstrong, corporate communications manager at Tauck about the new offerings. “Croatia is increasingly popular with Tauck guests, as evidenced by the fact that we’ve gone from a single itinerary featuring Croatia in 2016 to three trips that include the country this year,” he told Travel Agent. “New for 2017 is the 13-day land tour, ‘Adriatic Treasures: Croatia to Venice,’ which spends nine of 12 nights in Croatia and includes cocktails and a lecture with the former Croatian Minister of Tourism.”
