It was not only Croatia’s stunning coast that saw more tourists flock there this year. The Croatian capital Zagreb has had 630,000 visitors in the first nine months of 2013, resulting in more than one million overnight stays.
This year arrivals to Zagreb are up 15% from 2012, whilst there were 13% more overnight stays this year compared to last year. Zagreb’s number one tourists up until the end of September were the Germans, followed by Americans, Italians and Brits. Tourist numbers have also been steady already in October and only last week Zagreb won a silver medallion, and an international award for design in the competition “Golden Flower of Europe 2013” which 2400 cities took part in.
