Croatia 'more accessible than ever'

25 Feb 2009

Croatia has become a more popular travel destination in recent years partly as a result of its increased accessibility for holidaymakers, according to a tourism industry spokesperson.

Meri Matesic, director of the country's UK tourist board, identified recent infrastructure improvements including road modernisation and expansion of air connections throughout Europe and the world.

Combined with Croatia's 'natural beauty' and varied landscapes, these developments are making the country 'increasingly attractive' to travellers, Ms Matesic claimed.

Commenting on the popularity of particular destinations, the tourist board director said: '90% of our tourist visits are to the costal part of Croatia, on the Adriatic coasts.

'The main attraction of this area is its natural beauty and preserved cultural heritage. Croatia is truly Mediterranean; it is a country with more than 1,000 islands, a sailing and boating paradise.'

Popular flight destinations in Croatia include Dubrovnik, Zagreb and Split, which are served by British Airways, Austrian Airlines, Lufthansa and other carriers.
