Croatia recorded good tourist results in August, which was reflected in the overall results for the first eight months of the year, during which there was a 5% increase in tourist arrivals, or 16.5 million in total, while overnight stays jumped by 2% or 90.1 million, when compared to the same period last year.
These data from eVisitor and eCrew were reported by the Ministry of Tourism on Tuesday, saying that the first six months of the year and the peak months of July and August are in line with expectations and projections.
More importantly Tourism Minister Gari Cappelli noted that the tax office has noted an upward trend in financial results with 20.6 billion Kuna in turnover on services alone. Minister Cappelli said this would have an excellent impact on the annual revenues from the tourism sector this year.
Leading the country in overnight stays is Istra County with 8.7 million, followed by the Primorje-Gorski Kotar and Split-Dalmatia counties with 6.3 million, Zadar County with 5.2 million, Šibenik-Knin County at 2.5 million, 2.3 million in Dubrovnik-Neretva County and 1.2 million in Lika-Senj County.
