Croatia Travel Blog and Travel Information
Croatia Travel Blog was designed to offer view of a Croatian Traveler in Croatia! My name is Filip Pogacic. I work as a professional tour guide. In a free time I write this blog and my goal is to describe first hand experience of a local that is exploring his country. And of course I want to share this experience with you!
Croatia Travel Blog – Croatia as a must visit place?
Why is Croatia a must visit place? Great question and there are multiple answers to it. Croatia Travel Blog might help you with the answer.
I would say that most of the visitors will come to visit us since this is a small country for a great holiday. Although size of the country is 56542 km2 (approximately 21851 square miles), our country is extremely rich and known for natural beauties. This is a country with 8 national parks. Most famous national park in Croatia is Plitvice Lakes, a national park that is in UNESCO world heritage register.
Tourism in Croatia
More than 18,5 million tourists visited Croatia in 2017. Profit that Croatia made of tourism in 2017 is approximately 12 billion Euros. So far, this is record year in Croatian tourism industry. I guess there are numerous reasons for this Croatian success. Some analyst will say that this success is so significant since many countries in North Africa and Middle East are having safety related issues. They also say that for that reason many tourists were diverted to Croatia.
I strongly disagree with them. Travelers and tourists simply love to come to Croatia for many other reasons. These reasons definitely include Croatian natural beauties, cultural heritage, great climate – and most of all – genuine Croatian hospitality!
So, please come and join us in this beautiful country. Let’s explore Croatia together!
