After the number of visitors in Croatia this July came to 80 percent of the record high statistics in the pre-pandemic 2019, the first third of August saw even better results, state agency Hina reported on Thursday, citing an article published by the Vecernji List daily.
For instance, the Istrian town of Rovinj tops the ranking, and in the first ten days of August, the number of tourists visiting this seaside town was higher by two percent on a daily basis compared to the corresponding period of 2019.
Also, visitor stats in Croatia have so far been better than in its Mediterranean peers. In Italy, the number of guests registered in the first seven months accounted for 49 percent of the pre-pandemic year of 2019. In Greece, it’s 58 percent..
The director of the Croatian Tourism Association, Veljko Ostojic, was quoted by the daily newspaper as saying that “the task of stakeholders in the tourism sector is to keep this favourable epidemiological situation for holidaymakers as long as possible.”
