September sees tourism drop by 76 percent across Croatia

Written by  Oct 06, 2020

Croatia’s tourism industry was hoping for a strong finish to the season after above expectation results in July and August, but with new Covid-19 travel restrictions coming into force in many major travel partners September was disappointing.

In September, 536 thousand tourists arrived in Croatia, or a massive 76.5 percent less than in September last year. And the number of overnight stays was down in the month by 62 percent, according to fresh data from eVisitor.

In the first nine months of this year, a total of almost 7.4 million tourists came to Croatia, or 60.7 percent less than in the same months last year, while a total of 52.4 million overnight stays fell by 49.1 percent. Foreign 5.9 million tourists spent almost 42 million overnight stays, which is 64.6 or 53.6 percent less than in the first nine months of 2019.

The largest drop in overnight stays in the first nine months of 67.1 percent was in Dubrovnik-Neretva with 2.7 million overnight stays in the first nine months of this year, while among the Adriatic counties Lika-Senj with the lowest number of overnight stays, 1.8 million, which is a drop of 45 percent.

Among all foreign markets, as in previous years, the Germans kept the first place in Croatian tourism in this pandemic year with 12.5 million overnight stays, which is 38.4 percent less than in the previous nine months.
