Croatia is fully prepared to welcome foreign tourists

 Monday, May 24, 2021 


In Croatia, hotels and restaurants are once again greeting visitors being optimistic about witnessing a good summer after more than a year of corona virus related lockdowns and travel restrictions.

Croatia has extensively reopened its spectacular Adriatic coastline for foreign tourists. It is one of the first European countries to let go of most of its pandemic measures. The mood appears comfortable in the Istria region, which is the northernmost part of the Croatian coast popular for its pebble beaches, thick pine forests, wine and delicacies like truffles, olive oil, goat cheese and prosciutto.

One can spot people barely wearing masks on the streets or in restaurants in the pictorial town of Rovinj. “People are fed up with lockdowns,” said Nikola Sandic, a waiter at a seafood restaurant located in a small boat harbor. “They have a glass of wine, watch the sea, and that’s all they need.”

Virus cases are going down in Croatia, and after a slow start to the country’s vaccine program, inoculations are becoming fast now. As per officials, around 50% of the population of 4 million will be fully vaccinated by mid-summer.

Croatia is a European Union member and a popular vacation destination. The country is allowing tourists from the United States, most of Europe and beyond who possess a vaccination certificate or proof of a negative test or recovering fully from COVID-19.

Croatian tourism officials are expecting a whole lot of US visitors, who will be exempt from the hassle of airport transfers when direct New York-Dubrovnik flights commence, which are expected in July.

Croatia Tourism Minister Nikolina Brnjac said that her country is applying strict health measures for avoiding unwanted problems.
