Tourism continues to grow in Croatia even during the winter months. According to data released from the Croatian Tourist Board, there were 8% more tourists in Croatia in the first three months of 2013 compared to the same period last year.
161,300 foreign tourists were in Croatia and 470,000 overnight stays, with 23% more foreign tourists in the capital Zagreb alone in March, and the near double-digit quarterly growth has put a smile on new Tourism Minister Darko Lorencin’s face.
“The results are nice, we have small growth in the number of Italian tourists, and significant growth on the Spanish market which is a good sign for the upcoming season,” said Lorencin.
