According to the eVisitor system, which includes tourist traffic realized in the commercial and non-commercial segment and in the nautical charter, more than 100 million tourist overnight stays have been realized in Croatia today.Considering that 100 million overnight stays were realized a month later, ie on October 28, this year’s result is a confirmation that Croatia occupies the position of a popular and sought-after tourist destination on the international market, the CNTB points out.”Exactly in the week when we celebrate World Tourism Day, we can be satisfied with the reach of one hundred million overnight stays a month earlier than last year, which is another in a series of indicators of how we develop year-round tourism with increased traffic outside the summer months. 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.
An unbeaten century from Craig Ervine sealed Zimbabwe’s first one-day series win for more than two years after a five-wicket victory over Ireland gave the hosts an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series in Harare. Ireland then restricted the hosts to 53 for two until Ervine, who hit a half-century in Zimbabwe’s two-wicket win on Friday, came to the crease and claimed another half-century off 68 balls before hitting the winning runs off a boundary in the 48th over to register his second ODI ton. Zimbabwe won the toss and for the second consecutive match chose to bowl first, but a much-improved batting display saw Paul Stirling’s rapid 72, Niall O’Brien’s half-century and Gary Wilson’s quick-fire 65 help Ireland reach 268 for seven from their 50 overs. Paceman Sikandar Raza was the pick of the bowlers as he took three for 49, including the wickets of O’Brien and Stirling. Press Association
