 Friday, September 2, 2022 


Croatia has welcomed 15 million tourist visits so far in 2022. It is 40 percent more arrivals and 27 percent more overnight stays compared to the same period last year, the Ministry of Tourism and Sports said in a statement on Friday.

Compared to the record year of 2019, 91 percent of arrivals and 96 percent of overnight stays were achieved in the same period.

The most tourist nights were realised in Istria (24.7 million), Split-Dalmatia (16 million) and Primorje-Gorski Kotar (15.3 million), followed by Zadar County (12.8 million overnight stays), Dubrovnik-Neretva County (6.2 million) and Šibenik-Knin County (5.7 million).

Looking at the results of the destinations, the most overnight stays since the beginning of the year were achieved in Rovinj (3.5 million), Dubrovnik (2.8 million), Poreč (2.8 million), Medulin (2.6 million), Umag (2.4 million ) and Split (2.4 million).

Since the beginning of the year the largest number of overnight stays was achieved by foreign guests from Germany (19.8 million), Slovenia (8.8 million), Austria (6.5 million), Poland (5.7 million), the Czech Republic (5 .2 million), Italy (3.7 million), Slovakia (3 million), the Netherlands (2.9 million) and the United Kingdom (2.8 million).

According to the type of accommodation, the most overnight stays were in household facilities (33.9 million), campsites (17.6 million) and hotels (17.2 million).

Minister of Tourism and Sports Nikolina Brnjac congratulated the entire travel and tourism sector on these outstanding results, and apart from tourist traffic, which is almost at the level of 2019, we can be especially satisfied with the financial results, which are even better. As was shown at the very beginning of the year, when already in the first quarter we achieved higher revenues from foreign tourists than in the record year of 2019, this continued and in the current part of the year we achieved almost 600 million more in the value of fiscalised invoices than in the whole of 2019.  The announcements for the postseason are very good, and I believe that such results will be achieved at the level of the whole year.

During August this year, there were 4.6 million arrivals and 32 million overnight stays, i.e. 6 percent more arrivals and 4 percent more overnight stays than in August 2021. Compared to July 2019, 92 percent of arrivals and 97 percent of overnight stays were realised in August 2019.
