A beautifully fine October has helped post-season tourist numbers in Croatia, and for the country’s most popular destination – Dubrovnik – a milestone is about to be hit …
The southern Dalmatian city will this week record its 3 millionth overnight stay, a key tourism statistic which measures the duration of a tourists stay. The beaches during the day are still busy in Dubrovnik, where temperatures in October have hit the high 20’s. The popular stone-walled city continues to attract the tourists year-in-year-out, from January this year there have been 12% more tourists arrivals and 9% more overnight stays than the same period last year.
Around 2,000 families in Dubrovnik live off renting private accommodation out during the season, creating around 12,000 beds. The Croatian Tourist Board, via its latest Croatia 365 campaign, are investing heavily into making Croatia an all year round destination by increasing both autumn and winter offerings.
