“Winning such valuable recognitions in the year marked by the global coronavirus pandemic is an exceptional success and achievement of the entire Croatian tourism sector, especially if we know that the awards are given according to the choice of profession, ie tour operators and travel agents. With very good results of tourist traffic from the American market this year and the introduction of two direct flights on the route New York – Dubrovnik, these awards are an additional confirmation of the excellent position that our country enjoys on the tourist map of the world. The silver that the Croatian National Tourist Board won in the category of the best European tourist organization for us is a satisfaction, a big wind in our sails and a confirmation of the excellent work of all my associates in the Croatian National Tourist Board, but also additional motivation in further efforts to bring our country even closer to travel enthusiasts as a safe, quality and meaningful destination,” concluded the director of the Croatian National Tourist Board, Kristjan Staničić.
