According to the eVisitor system, about 65 thousand arrivals and almost 380 thousand overnight stays have been made from the Polish market so far in August, which is a four percent increase in arrivals and 10 percent in overnight stays compared to the same period last year.
-After a great July, we expect even better tourist results in August. In the first five days of August, more than 3.9 million overnight stays were realized in Croatia, which is almost 70 percent of last year's result achieved in the same period. In addition to the Polish market, where turnover also increased, we have excellent results in August from the markets of Germany and Slovenia, where we recorded about 96 percent of last year's turnover. These results confirm that our country is perceived as a safe and quality tourist destination, and it is up to us to maintain this status through responsible behavior and adherence to epidemiological measures - said the director of the Croatian Tourist Board Kristjan Stanicic, adding that in the current part of August from the market of the Czech Republic almost 80 percent of last year's result is achieved, and the Austrian market more than 60 percent.
Recently the national Polish television TVP dedicated its edition of the most watched morning show in Poland entirely to Croatia as a tourist destination.
It is a show "Pytanie na śniadanie" which, according to the Nielsen Audience Measurement, is watched by about 485 thousand viewers every day for three hours.
The show about Croatia presented natural beauties, cultural heritage and eno-gastronomic offer, and the guest in the show was Agnieszka Puszczewicz, director of the Croatian National Tourist Board office in Poland.
-Visiting the show was a great opportunity to present the various motives for the arrival of guests in Croatia. I believe that the Polish market will have a strong share in the overall results of Croatian tourism during this very challenging year as well - concluded Puszczewicz.
