Dubrovnik paid highest price in Covid-19 crisis - Ana Hrnić

According to the eVisitor system, there are currently a little more than 200,000 tourists in Croatia, of which 145,000 are foreign tourists. The majority of these tourists are in the Istria region, around 55,000 in total, followed by the Kvarner region with about 44,000 guests.

And even though the weather looks likely to remain stable and indeed warm for the rest of September there clearly will not be a strong post-season in Croatia as the most important travel markets have already placed restrictions on Croatia.

The director of the Dubrovnik Tourist Board, Ana Hrnić, was a guest last night on the HRT television and explained “Dubrovnik, we can say, paid the highest price in this crisis, as we are almost exclusively an air destination. Our season started much later than in the rest of Croatia, we can say that we started to achieve some more serious numbers, more serious results after the establishment of direct flights with Great Britain," Hrnić said.

She added that August started off great until the epidemiological situation worsened and until we were put on the red list, primarily the UK. It remains to be seen what will happen in October, she concluded.
