Croatia’s most popular tourist destination Dubrovnik has had a rocketing start to the year. In January and February there were 19,999 tourists staying in the southern Dalmatian city, 9% more than in the same period last year, which was a record tourist year…
The start of the year is usually a good sign of things to come and Dubrovnik looks likely to break the 2014 record year when 863,801 tourists visited, creating 3.1 million overnight stays. The number of arrivals last year eclipsed the 2013 arrivals by 12%.
Out of the total tourists in the first two months of 2015, 14,560 were foreign tourists, whilst 5,439 tourists staying in the city were locals. Koreans, Japanese, Americans, Brits, Germans, Albanians, Slovenians, Italians, Austrians and tourists from Bosnia and Herzegovina provided the largest amount of visitors. (photo / wikimedia)
