Ina Rodin, Director of the CNTB Representative office in New York, accepted these awards, which are popularly and often called the Tourist Oscar, on behalf of the Croatian National Tourist Board.
“We are delighted that Croatia is still popular among our top ambassadors, travel agents and their clients. Getting two Travvy awards in the category of Best Mediterranean Destination and European Tourism Organization is a great overture to 2022. This recognition by leading industry experts certainly gives us new momentum and is proof of the hard work, dedication and overall efforts of the Croatian National Tourist Board and our tourism colleagues from across the country to present Croatia in the best light and as a destination that will successfully attract American visitors in the future”, said Rodin
In addition to silver which belonged to the Croatian National Tourist Board, in the category of the Best European Tourist Organization Ireland won gold and in the category of the Best Destination in the Mediterranean where Croatia won the bronze, Greece won the gold.
“To receive such valuable recognitions in a year marked by the global corona virus pandemic is an exceptional success and achievement of the entire Croatian tourism sector, especially if we know that the award winners are chosen by industry professionals, i.e. tour operators and travel agents. With very good tourist traffic results from the American market this year and the introduction of two direct flights on the route New York – Dubrovnik, these awards are an additional confirmation of the excellent position that our country enjoys on the tourist map of the world. The silver that the Croatian National Tourist Board won in the category of the Best European Tourist Organization brings us great satisfaction, new momentum, but also additional motivation in further efforts to bring our country closer to travel lovers as a safe, quality and meaningful destination”, concluded Director of the Croatian National Tourist Board Kristjan Staničić.
