Written by  Nov 05, 2016

For the first time in the tourism history of Dubrovnik the city has recorded the arrival of the millionth guest! Today in the Hotel Valamar Lacroma Dubrovnik Mirica and Zlatko Matoic from Sesvete, near Zagreb, became the millionth tourists in Dubrovnik this year.

In a gala ceremony to mark this landmark the Mayor of Dubrovnik, Andro Vlahusic, commented that “In 2008, just eight years ago, Dubrovnik recorded 512,000 tourist arrivals, now this year we are celebrating one million.” He added that the city has twice been awarded his year as the champion of tourism and thanked the tourist board and everyone who works in the tourism industry for their hard work.

The couple were presented with gifts from the city, the tourist board as well as a four-night stay in the Hotel Valamar Lacroma for next year. “We decided to come to Dubrovnik for a couple of days as a break and to say that we are surprised to be the millionth tourists is an understatement,” said Mirica Matoic.

The Director of the Dubrovnik Tourist Board, Romana Vlasic, added that “We have never recorded a million tourists in the city before and are overjoyed that this has occurred in the same year that we have won two important tourism awards. As the Valamar group has achieved an impressive number of tourist arrivals and overnight stays it seems logical that this landmark was reached in their hotel.”
