Germans, Austrians, Italian, Slovenes, Bosnian and Herzegovinians, Americans, Koreans, Serbians, Japanese and Brits were the most common tourists in November.

The increase in arrivals in November is evidence that the activities of the Tourism Ministry and the Croatian Tourism Board aimed at extending the tourist season are yielding results,” Minister of Tourism Darko Lorencin said, adding that more people are interested in non-coastal regions of the country now.
