Croatian coast is the most popular summer vacation destination for Croats, with some 62 percent choosing to summer on the Adriatic, showed the survey by Mastercard and GfK market research centre published on Thursday.
Some 46 percent of those surveyed choose private accommodations, while 41 percent own real estate on the coast. The least popular accommodations among Croats are hotels (12 percent) and camps (6 percent). The majority, some 70-80 percent, come from Zagreb and northern Croatia.
The online survey was conducted in May on a sample of 1,000 people aged 18 to 55.
Some 84 percent of those who will go on a summer vacation have monthly wages above 12,000 kuna (€1,600).
Only 22 percent of those surveyed will not go on a vacation, a drop from previous similar surveys where the results were closer to 50 percent. Those who decided to stay home over the summer mostly did so because of financial reasons.
