Record Summer for Split as City Aims for Magical Million Next Year

splitWith the 2013 tourist season pretty much done and dusted in Croatia for another year, there is one city wishing it would never end. The famous port city of Split on the Dalmatian coast has achieved record numbers this year, according to the latest data released by the Tourist Board.

Split has recorded 830,000 overnight stays, which reflects both the length of stay and the number of visitors and is considered a key indicator for accommodation statistics, in the first 9 months on the year, with the average spend of each tourist 55 euros per day.  This years numbers are 20% more than last year, and if last year’s final 3 months are anything to go by, then Split will see over 900,000 overnight stays in 2013.

“These numbers put Split in the leading place in Croatia, if the trend continues then next year we can achieve 1 million overnight stays, although that was in our plan for 2015, said Vedran Matošić, Split Tourist Board’s director to 24sata. Germans, followed by the Brits were Split’s number one tourists.
