ZAGREB, Dec 2 (Hina) – There are about 10,000 tourists in Croatia and given the circumstances and restrictions in international travel, no major turnover is expected this month, although some hotels, campsites and private accommodation are open, Croatian Tourist Board director Kristjan Stanicic has told Hina.
