    Bravo Hrvatska!

    Hrvatska with its largest number of airports in ex-Yu should be proud of those figures. 15 million tourists in the country so far:

    Germans, Slovenes and Poles are topping the list. Countries with a higher purchasing power.
    Well done!

      The figure does not include September which is very busy month for Truism in Croatia, or October…. Most likely total figure will be around 17.5 million foreign visitors in 2022 with probable 20 million foreign visitors in 2023. In 2019 Croatia was visited by 21.7 million visitors, 20 million of whom were foreign. Tax from tourism activity this year should exceed €4,2 billion, and in 2023 this figure should be close to €5,0 billion. Tax represents around a third of total tourism revenue which in 2023 should reach €15 billion, or roughly 20% of Croatia's GDP. Current GDP of Croatia is 502 bn Kuna, in 2023 it is expected to be around 550 billion.

    The Ryanair strategy is paying off. In the absence of long-haul visitors and with Croatia Airlines doing nothing new, Ryanair was the growth driver Zagreb needed.
