After two years of uncertainty and travel restrictions tourism in Dubrovnik has bounced back incredibly. The forecasts at the beginning of the year were for stable, but unimpressive year, with even the fear that tourism would still remain around 2021 levels. Clearly, that has not been the case, and the region is now almost up to the record breaking year of 2019.
This can clearly be seen from the figures at Dubrovnik Airport, the front line of tourism for the whole region. In August this year a massive 429,878 passengers passed through the southernmost airport in Croatia. In August last year 291,207 passengers used the airport, meaning that an additional 138,671 passengers used the airport this August.
These encouraging figures follow on from July this year when 425.536 passengers used the airport, compared to 191.714 in August 2021.
