Croatia – first on the list of countries that are suffering from overtourism

By  May 25, 2018

A new index created by Australian travel company Intrepid has revealed the countries suffering from the most "overtourism", along with the nations with "undertourism" – Traveller reports. 

According to them, the index compares total visitor arrivals in 2016 to the permanent population to create a "tourism density index".

This is especially interesting to us, since Croatia is the country with the most tourists per head of population, according to Intrepid's index.

-Croatia saw 57,587,000 tourists in 2016 and with their meagre population of 4,170,600, that measures 1380.78 per cent of the country's population – nearly 14 tourists to every local – Traveller writes.

They also touched the problem of tourism boom that has been causing damage in the some of the most popular tourism destinations, such as European hotspots such as Venice and Barcelona.
