Mayor of Dubrovnik praises tourism recovery - we are slowly but surely sailing towards sustainable tourism

Written by  Sep 03, 2022

The Mayor of Dubrovnik, Mato Frankovic, pointed out the positive tourism results in Dubrovnik this year on his Facebook profile. “In the first eight months, we recorded excellent tourism results. In August, 93 percent of overnight stays were achieved compared to 2019, and we have announcements for an excellent September and October ahead of us. The confirmation of the arrival of charter flights from Seoul is encouraging, which means that the recovery of the eastern market, which has not returned since the beginning of the corona virus, has begun,” commented the mayor.

And he added that “We are recording good announcements for the winter months as well, and I am convinced that in cooperation with Dubrovnik Airport we will succeed in connecting Dubrovnik and international destinations during the winter as well.”

And when it comes to cruise tourism he stated that “Cruise tourism is also recovering well, and Dubrovnik is again the City with the most cruise ship arrivals in Croatia, but this time according to a clear schedule - no more than two cruisers per day and with a longer stay than it was before the pandemic. We are slowly but surely sailing towards sustainable tourism. A lot of work is still ahead of us, especially in the historic core to put everything in its place, but step by step we will reach the goal.”
