Five Star Camp Plitvice Not Budging from "365 Model" for Tourism

Guests' interest in the festive season and the winter tourist season exceeded expectations, they say from Camp Plitvice, adding that interest from foreign tourists is still mostly dependent on the presence of snow.

As Marta Duic/Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 3rd of December, 2019, Camp Plitvice, which opened back in August, is one of three five-star campsites in the Republic of Croatia. After a very successful summer season, Camp Plitvice says that guests' interest in the festive season and winter tourism in this part of continental Croatia exceeded their expectations.

"Although for the winter bookings we're largely dependent on getting lucky, or indeed unlucky with the weather, because the guests naturally want to see some snow, we're full from December the 27th to December the 31st, while over Christmas the traffic is less, which was expected given the fact that this is a time for family. However, after the New Year, we're unfortunately dependent on the weather, and we know from experience that during this period, guests usually book accommodation only a few days in advance,'' they explained from the newly opened and already successful Camp Plitvice.

According to them, the most frequent guests are Germans, followed by Croats and the French, followed by the Italians and the Swiss. The average stay of guests so far is 1.7 days per guest.

"We're open all year-round. The construction of a luxury camp, spanning 16,000 square metres and employing about thirty people, has had about 35 million kuna invested in it. The campsite has seventeen exclusively furnished and fully equipped mobile homes with terraces, thirty pitches for camping of 100 to 150 square feet and eight tent campsites,'' they add.

Although this camp opened only in mid-August, it was 100 percent full during the summer season, with autumn occupancy being around 70 percent and the occupancy of the camp's mobile homes being around 60 percent. Interestingly, as many as 90 percent of the guests at Camp Plitvice are foreigners, who we typically (and perhaps wrongly) always associate with going solely to the Croatian coast in summer.

"Currently, the biggest problem is the lack of accommodation units in relation to the demand, so we intend to expand our accommodation capacities by a minimum of twenty accommodation units and a dozen camping pitches as soon as possible," announced Campsite Plitvice.

They also point out that only high quality accommodation can definitely prolong the tourist season in Croatia.

"This is the only correct way if we don't want to destroy our nature with mass tourism and the concretisation of our coast," they state from Camp Plitvice.

Number of Visitors to Plitvice Lakes at Same Level as 2018

If you're heading to continental Croatia, making your way from the coast to Zagreb... Why not stop off at the incredible Plitvice Lakes while it isn't too crowded?

It seems as if everyone is talking about the rather strange and slow tourist season of 2019. While Croatia is usually sizzling under the beating sun and the streets are completely thronged with foreign tourists, this year appears a little different indeed.

It seems, at least according to some sources, that it isn't just Croatia that is suffering a considerable drop on tourists and likely tourism revenue this summer, and that thanks to the return of Mediterranean rivals such as Turkey and even Egypt, even the likes of Greece and Spain have recorded a drop in figures.

One of Croatia's top continental attractions is the absolutely stunning Plitvice Lakes, and according to Poslovni Dnevnik/Radmila Kovacevic/VL on the 17th of July, 2019, there appears to be no overcrowding in Croatia's most famous national park this year. A somewhat unusual situation for this time of year.

During the first half of this year, Plitvice Lakes sold 625,000 tickets, and difference this year is that tickets are sold in advance, and can be purchased online. Those aforementioned 625,000 tickets which have been sold are at the same level as they were last year. As stated, the only real difference is that you can now purchase them online, and the tickts state the exact time that the guest intends to enter the national park. All of that is an attempt to avoid crowds and long waiting times.

The director of Plitvice Lakes National Park, Tomislav Kovačević, has stated that waiting times at the park have been drastically cut when compared to how things used to be. He stated that now a wait is about 15 to 20 minutes, and that is when waiting to board a boat.

He also says that without pre-purchased tickets from online, it's best to avoid the period between 09:00 and 13:00, because at those times things are usually closed for guests who come without having purchased online tickets beforehand.

During the most frequented days at NP Plitvice Lakes, there can be as many as 14,300 visitors. The same as last year, when the number of daily visitors exceeded 14,000 in one week.
