Americans spend twice as much as the average tourist to Croatia, approximately 300 euros per person per day. They seek quality and are willing to pay for it. These are the guests everyone wants, and Croatia is one of their favourite destinations, especially one Adriatic city, according to Dnevnik.hr.
“We have everything they are looking for. Fantastic nature, tradition, history, highly personalized experiences – the human factor is something irreplaceable. I would also emphasize another aspect, and that is multigenerational travel where the safety aspect is very important, and Croatia provides it," stated Leila Krešić-Jurić, the director of the Croatian Tourist Board representation in the United States.
At the New York trade fair, 500 exhibitors from 170 countries presented themselves, and the Croatian Tourist Board was recognized as one of the best exhibitors and the most visited.

Numerous Croatian agencies, hotels, and 11 Croatian destinations showcased their offerings. When asked which Croatian city Americans love the most, the answer was Dubrovnik.
Tour guide Sanja Čikato said that the guests are very easy-going and satisfied. "When I mention that we have a pharmacy from the 14th century, that we have a quarantine, that slavery was abolished in 1416, and America was not yet discovered, only in 1492, they are simply fascinated," she added.
Last year, 700 thousand Americans visited Croatia, generating over two million overnight stays. Even more are expected this year.
