We also confirm how important tourism is for our entire economy with a package of reform laws which will further regulate the system to be in line with modern market challenges. They will be discussed during the Croatian Tourism Day at the end of October on Hvar, where a Government session dedicated to the results of tourism will be held, of which those related to economic performance are most happy, ” said Tourism Minister Gary Cappelli.In the current part of the tourist year, there have been about 18 million arrivals and more than 100 million overnight stays in Croatia, which is an increase of 6 percent in arrivals and 4 percent in overnight stays compared to the same period last year. In the same period, the highest number of overnight stays was realized from the markets of Germany, Croatia, Slovenia, Austria, Poland and the Czech Republic, and the destinations where the highest number of overnight stays were realized were Dubrovnik, Rovinj, Poreč, Medulin and Split.   “The current indicators and flows of tourist traffic are extremely pleasing to all of us in the tourism sector because they confirm that we have managed to maintain positive trends in this very challenging tourist year. Some of the key activities that have ensured excellent results include intensified promotional activities, creative marketing campaigns, increasing the number of airlines and destinations connected to Croatian airports and strengthening the overall tourist offer in the pre- and post-season periods “, said CNTB Director Kristjan Staničić, adding that the 100 million overnight stays already in September represent an incentive for further activities and efforts in positioning Croatia as an attractive and meaningful year-round tourist destination.last_img
