The Croatian capital is growing slowly but surely as a tourist destination and last year welcomed 1.3 million tourists, a healthy increase of 17 percent compared to 2016.
The Minister of Tourism, Gari Cappelli, met with the director of the Zagreb Tourist Board, Martina Bienenfeld, this week and discussed the positive results the city achieved. The majority of the tourists to the Croatian capital in 2017 came from South Korea, the United States, Germany, Italy, and China. Thanks to the Advent in Zagreb winter festival the city managed to achieve all year round tourism and the new airport saw a continuous flow of international flights.
"The Ministry supports all the activities by the Zagreb Tourist Board, our cooperation is aimed at common goals and interests, and how much the tourist industry means for the overall economy and gives impetus to all other industries is clearly seen from the data on tourist revenue. Zagreb is a positive example of a destination that lives tourism all year round,” commented Cappelli.
