Published on : Wednesday, July 24, 2019

The Croatian National Tourist Board has announced 6% increase in visitor arrivals for first half of this year. The month of June witnessed a 10% increase in arrivals and an 8% increase in overnight stays when compared to last year.

 

Croatia had 6.88 million visitors from January to June this year, with 26.2 million overnight stays, and 3% increase over the previous year. Foreign tourists counted for 5.85 million of these arrivals and 22.93 million overnight stays.

 

Gari Cappelli, minister of tourism in Croatia said, “One of the main objectives for tourism management in 2019 is to increase visitors to the destination in pre-season. In the past three years, we have seen a 20% growth in tourist arrivals and 15% growth in occupancy.

 

By continuing to strengthen our promotional activities in overseas markets, we aim to achieve greater turnover in pre and post season moving forward.”

 

Croatia witnessed tourism growth due to targeted activities to promote the country as a great all-year-round destination. Increased air traffic also contributed towards strong tourism growth.
