Tourists generated 842,659 nights over the June 19-22 extended weekend in Croatia and an average 210,000 stayed in the country per day, the National Tourist Board (HTZ) said on Tuesday.
Domestic tourists accounted for 23% of the nights and foreigners for 77%. The most numerous foreigners were Germans, Slovenians, Austrians and the Czech.
The highest number of nights was generated in Istria County, followed by Primorje-Gorski Kotar and Zadar counties.
HTZ director Kristjan Stanicic said Croatia was among the few Mediterranean countries generating a tourism turnover at the moment.
“The system of defence against coronavirus across the country is at a high level… We have ensured the conditions for a safe tourist summer… and it’s up to all of us, citizens and tourists, to behave responsibly and adhere to all the epidemiological measures,” he added.
