Croatian Tourist Board Director says Tourist Season is Great

By 16 August 2022

ZAGREB, 16 August, 2022 - Croatian Tourist Board (HTZ) Director Kristjan Staničić told the national television (HTV) on Monday evening that the tourist season was great and some indicators showed that the results were already close to those in the record-breaking 2019.

Currently, there are about 1.1 million visitors staying in Croatia, Staničić said.

He expected even higher revenues than in 2019.

Also, the Croatian National Bank (HNB) forecasts that the revenues from the tourist industry could reach € 11.3 billion, or 7% (€800 million) more than in 2019.

Staničić expressed satisfaction with also a higher number of fiscalised receipts and revenues from the tourist trade.

He, however, would rather wait for the end of the season to see the final results.

The HTZ director also commented on some complaints about too high prices of the services along the Croatian coast and said that every price rise must be followed by the upgrade of services and products.

Staničić said that the HTZ is preparing a new strategy for sustainable tourism, and this document should soon be finished.
