This year, the Croatian National Tourist Board attended the important tourist fair, f.re.e, held in Munich. This is a fair for a wide audience visited by more than 110,000 visitors, and the Croatian stand was visited by Director of HTZ Head Office Kristjan Staničić, who met with important partners in the German market, with representatives of many tour operators and agencies such as TUI, ID Riva Tours, Holiday Check, croatia.de, etc.
Director Staničić said that the German market is one of the most important markets for Croatian tourism. "The Croatian National Tourist Board has carried out a series of promotional activities on the most important markets, and because of the importance of German guests, the most resources available for marketing activities are being invested in this market. With regard to one of our key strategic goals, which is positioning Croatia as a quality all-year tourist destination, the segment of airline transportation and the accessibility of Croatian destinations are of great importance. We are very happy with the excellent connections between key Croatian and German cities throughout the year, and in particular a large number of active airline companies such as easyJet, Lufthansa, Eurowing, Ryanair and Condor, " commented Staničić.
"The best confirmation of Croatia's stability and popularity in this market is the growth of German tourists over 15 percent in 2017, while this year we expect additional growth of 5 percent. I am glad that there is an increasing number of guests from Germany visiting Croatia at the level of the whole year, German guests are the most numerous out of the summer months,” added Staničić.
