According to the eVisitor system, which includes tourist traffic in the commercial and non-commercial segment and nautical charter, more than a million tourist arrivals were recorded so far in Croatia in July, which is 47% of the arrivals recorded during the same period last year.

More than 7.2 million tourist overnights were realized, which is approximately 55% of last year’s result.

Of the total number of arrivals, foreign tourists accounted for 875,000 arrivals (44 percent of last year’s result) and 6.2 million overnights (53 percent of last year’s result), while domestic tourist traffic was at 80 percent of last year’s traffic measured by arrivals and 73 percent of overnights.

“Almost 550,000 tourists are staying in Croatia on a daily basis, of which about 460,000 are foreign guests. During the second half of July, and especially in August, we expect that the number of guests in Croatian destinations will continue to grow, and this confirms the good international market position of our country, which is one of the few tourist destinations in the Mediterranean where tourist traffic is being realized,” said the Director of the Croatian National Tourist Board, Kristjan Staničić.

To-date this July, namely for the period from the 1st to the 15th of July, in terms of the absolute number of overnight stays, the largest number of visitors are from Germany, which achieved 86 percent of last year’s result, followed by Slovenia with 83 percent of last year’s result and the Czech Republic with 69 percent of last year’s result in the same period. The destinations with the highest number of overnight stays so far in July are Vir, Rovinj, Medulin, Mali Lošinj and Poreč.(croatiaweek.com)
