Not even the bad weather at the start of the season, the fear that Greece and Turkey would dump prices or the negative publicity seemed to have had any effect on the tourism season in Dubrovnik. Fears of this summer being a disaster have been proved to be unfounded. It has been a year to remember.
Figures just released by the Dubrovnik Tourist Board show that from the beginning of 2019 until the end of October the number of international tourists visiting the city rose by 13 percent on last year. And last year was a record breaking year.
In total 1.372 million tourists choose Dubrovnik as their vacation destination in 2019 and achieved 4.24 million overnight stays. As has been the case for the past decade British tourists were by far the most numerous this year, followed by Americans, Germans and French. 196,331 Brits holidayed in Dubrovnik this year, followed by 155,655 Americans and 99,148 Germans.
