Croatia’s health tourism was presented for the first time at the Les Thermalies Fair held in France last week.

The branch office of the Croatian National Tourist Board (HTZ) in France presented Croatia’s health tourism offer at the specialized fair Les Thermalies, which took place in Paris from the 1st to the 4th of February 2018.

One of the largest fairs in this part of Europe gathered around 300 exhibitors and more than 35,000 visitors where Croatia, as a health, spa and thermal tourism destination, presented its offer for the first time and stirred a lot of interest of visitors to the fair.

On this occasion, the director of the HTZ Kristjan Staničić commented, ‘’Health tourism is unquestionably important for Croatia as a tourist destination and is one of our most prominent products with a long tradition and history. It is among the tourist products that will be the focus of promotional activities of the HTZ’’.

Staničić also added that that was the reason for organizing this presentation at the Les Thermalies fair within which the HTZ presented to the French audience all important information related to the offer, regulation and service coverage in Croatia by the French health insurance as well as prices that are lower for certain health services in Croatia than in France.

‘’France is one of the most developed European markets in terms of health tourism’’, commented Staničić.
