6 New Hotels in Split After Tourism Boom

Croatia32Over the past few years now the Dalmatian city of Split has been one of Croatia’s tourism stars. With double-digit growth in arrivals, and 1.3 million overnight stays recorded in 2014, the need for the city’s accommodation offerings to keep up with current trends will see 6 new hotels built in Split…

Two hotels will be built in the Žnjan and Trstenik area, and one in the popular Bačvice area. Hotel Ambasador will operate again, whilst renovations at Hotel Park will be complete before the summer season starts.

“The thing Split tourism is missing the most is accommodation capacity. But these projects, which are underway, and plans for development on the east coast of the city, the situation will be much better,” Mayor Ivo Baldasar told Vecernji list, who says a lot of hard work to make Split an attractive destination all year round has now paid off with an increase in tourist numbers.

“In December we had 28% more overnight stays (than last year) thanks to a well prepared Advent programme in Split,” he added.
