Croatia records as many tourists as in 2019

Statistics show that tourist doomsayers and Doubting Thomases were wrong, with the eVisitor information system for guest check-in and check-out showingВ slightly more than 16 million tourists havingВ visited Croatia since the beginning of the year, makingВ 87.7 million overnight stays, VeДЌernji List daily says.

The figures for the past eight months are better than last year, with a 7% increase inВ arrivals and a 2% increase in overnight stays. Compared to the best year ever for Croatian tourism, 2019, the results are the same. The data is not complete yet, the exact figures will be released in a few days, as well as how August itself went.

Most of the ten most important source markets have contributed more tourists this year than last year, and some have recorded better results that in 2019. The best European travelers and Croatia’s traditionally most numerous guests are Germans, who practically dictate the success of the season in the entire Mediterranean, and with slightly more than 2.6 million arrivals and 18.5 million overnight stays, they have retained theВ leading position in Croatia inВ 2023.

Admittedly, there have beenВ two percent fewer German visitors this year so far, compared to the year before, and they have generated four percent less overnights.

“In September, there will be more German guests here than in July,” tourism professionals estimated back in the spring.
