There is more than one way to earn from tourism. The millions of tourists who visit Dubrovnik every year aren’t just paying for accommodation, food and day-trips but also to use the public toilets.
In 2018 the Dubrovnik public cleaning company had a revenue of over 1 million Kuna from public toilets. One visit to the public toilet in the city is seven Kuna, so doing the rough maths that means that around 160,000 visitors paid to relieve themselves in the public toilets. There are three public toilets situated around the city, and the city saw a revenue of 1,122 million Kuna from these toilets, writes Dubrovacki Vjesnik.
"They are equipped with a sophisticated high-quality billing system in accordance with state-of-the-art technological solutions, fully automated. Most of the interior spaces are coated with stainless steel and a so-called “anti-vandal” system that actually prevents the breakup and destruction of the inventory,” commented the public cleaning company.
