As part of the traditional tourist event “Days of Croatian Tourism” the Croatian National Tourist Board and Croatian Chamber of Commerce held the first part of the award ceremony last night in Mali Losinj.
"Croatia is today one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, and to ensure the long-term success of Croatian tourism, we must continually improve. That is why Days of Croatian Tourism, as the largest gathering of stakeholders in Croatian tourism, is a great opportunity to look back on the results, exchange experiences, talk about new ideas and trends in the tourism world, "said the Tourism Minister Gari Cappelli on the occasion of the opening ceremony.
He added "This gathering is also an opportunity to reward those who are an example of the development and quality of Croatian tourism and encourage us all. I congratulate everyone on the award, thank you for your persistent and dedicated work and contribution to this successful Croatian tourist story."
