Dubrovnik got the title of the champion of tourism by the national newspapers Vecernji list. They have their tourism patrol from 1975, in which they circle around the touristic towns and places in Croatia.
Vecernji has written:
- The champion of tourism in 2016 is like George Clooney, different and better in everything – and unique. That's the town that makes trends, has Game of Thrones and Star Wars, soon will have Robin Hood... And it will always be like that: the town that everybody knows about and the only one that hits right in the heart.
Dubrovnik Tourist Board is thankful for this kind of recognition, which came while Dubrovnik is having 2millionth stay four days earlier than 2015.
- In the successful tourist Croatia this summer, where Dubrovnik is the most visited tourist destination, standing out with the quality of the offer too, this award really makes us happy and proud - commented the good news Romana Vlasic, the director of Dubrovnik Tourist Board.
