There can be no doubt that the Croatian tourism industry is vitally important to the overall economic welfare of the country, with almost a quarter of the GDP coming directly or indirectly from tourism. Data just released by the central bank reflect just how important it is with the country earning an impressive €10.1 billion in revenues in 2018 from tourism.
In 2108 revenue from tourism in Croatia was €10.1 billion which is an increase over 2017 of around 6.5 percent, when revenues amounted to €9.5 billion.
"Last year, tourism revenue earned from foreign visitors was over €10 billion for the first time ever. When income from domestic tourists are added, the revenues were €12 billion, which is an excellent result," commented the Minister of Tourism, Gari Cappelli, in a statement.
