American tour operator ranks Croatia among top ten places to visit for 2019

By  Nov 03, 2018

Croatia has once again found itself on a “top ten” list and this time it comes from one of the most important American tour operators. Virtuoso has ranked Croatia among the top ten most popular countries to visit, in its overall rankings, as well as in the subcategories of emerging destinations and favourite places for millennial travellers.

According to its Virtuoso Luxe Report for 2019 which polled thousands of travel agencies dealing in luxury travel, Croatia ranked 2nd among most popular emerging destinations (behind Japan), 6th most popular destination for Millenial travellers, and 8th in its overall ranking of most popular places to visit in 2019.

"The US market represents one of the leading overseas markets for Croatia's tourist industry, and this year the country recorded 570,000 arrivals and 1.6 million bed nights by American visitors so far, which is a 23 percent increase year-on-year, so we are happy to see Croatia ranked so highly in the US market," the director of the national tourist board, Kristjan Stanicic, said in a press release.
