Croatia welcoming more UK visitors
19 Sep 2012

Croatia's national tourist office has revealed the country is set to see a large increase in UK visitor numbers this year.

In the first eight months of 2012, more than 241,000 Britons travelled to destinations like Dubrovnik, Split and Zagreb, 23% more than in the same period last year.

Visitor numbers are set to top 300,000 by the end of the year, approaching the previous record of 500,000 set in 1990.

Meri Matesic, UK and Ireland director of the Croatian National Tourist Office (CNTO), said it is 'fantastic' to see that more Brits are choosing the country as their holiday destination.

She added: 'I'm confident that the UK and Irish markets will continue to grow in 2013, especially with the introduction of more flights, new routes and holiday packages.'

The CNTO has launched the second phase of a marketing campaign that will feature promotions in UK newspapers encouraging consumers to consider an autumn or winter trip to Croatia.
