The Times Names Croatia among the World's Top Three Destinations!

November 13, 2020 - The Times names Croatia among the world's top three destinations!

HTZ announced that esteemed British newspaper The Times & The Sunday Times has awarded the world's best countries for many years. This time, Croatia was among the top three.

Namely, Croatia won third place among the world's best destinations in the "Best Country award 2020" category. Given the current epidemiological situation, the award ceremony was held virtually and attended by the Croatian National Tourist Board Director in the United Kingdom, Darija Reić.

"With its fantastic tourist offer and tireless promotion, Croatia unquestionably deserves the title of one of the best countries, and we are extremely pleased that the British public has recognized our quality. A visit to Croatian destinations is something that Brits like to brag about, to the extent that even going into isolation did not sway some of them to travel and enjoy our Mediterranean wealth. This success has strengthened the position of Croatia as a destination of beautiful landscape and diverse, high-quality tourist offer, and we will continue to maintain our reputation in the market through further promotional activities," said Reić.

The news of the award delighted the Croatian National Tourist Board, too

"According to Eurostat data, we took the leading position in the Mediterranean this season, and this is additional confirmation of the safe and stable position that our country enjoys on the international market. The United Kingdom is one of the most important markets for Croatian tourism. I believe that by stabilizing the situation, our loyal British guests will return in greater numbers," the director of the CNTB, Kristjan Staničić, said.

In this category, Italy was declared the best country globally, while second place went to New Zealand. The shortlist, which was awarded for the eighth time, also included some of the world's best destinations such as France, Turkey, the United States, Dubai, Spain, Portugal, Greece, and Thailand.
