Written by  Jul 21, 2019

Is Dubrovnik on your travel bucket list? More and more people are compiling bucket lists of world destinations, but where exactly do people around the globe aspire to visit the most? And is Dubrovnik on their bucket list.

The popular travel website Big 7 have followed on from their survey on the sexiest nations on the planet they have now produced a list entitled Top 50 Bucket List Destinations in the World.

They asked their 1.5 million social audience which destinations across the planet would feature on people’s bucket lists.

Unsurprisingly, countries with naturally beautiful scenery or world-famous landmarks came out on top. 22 percent of the top bucket list destinations have white sandy beaches, while 52 percent are an iconic city. The average number of destinations on a bucket list is 11, with people hoping to visit at least seven of those places during the lifetime.

And Big 7 Travel wrote that “People were also more likely to add a destination to their list if they had seen it on social media – our study found that 33 percent of people research holiday destinations via their Instagram feed.”

The only Croatian destination to feature on the list was Dubrovnik, which came in at a very healthy 12th position, just behind New York and one place ahead of Edinburgh.
