300,000 foreign tourists are expected to visit Croatia as the first weekend of June sees the first big wave of tourists. A total of 1.7 million tourists visited Croatia in the first four months of 2017, which is 22% more than in the same period in 2016. With this weekend’s flooding of visitors, it looks like 2017 will be a record year for the Croatian tourism industry.
According to data from the Ministry of Internal Affairs, on Friday 2 June 2017, 285,000 foreign tourists entered Croatia. Among them, a large number of tourists were from Italy, Austria, Slovenia, and Germany.
Records were also achieved at Split Airport on Saturday where 94 planes landed. In total, there were 23,000 passengers coming through the airport, which is a record in one day for 2017.
In May 2017, Split Airport welcomed 25.8% more passengers than in the same month last year. Zadar, on the Dalmatian coast, also saw record 7,000 tourists arrive by three cruise ships.
Last year 16.6 million tourists visited Croatia, and this year too, prospects look bright!
