It is also important to note that no other country outside the DACH region has recorded a positive increase in holiday demand as Croatia. “, he pointed out Branimir Tončinić, adding that the demand for hotels in the Austrian market has fallen this year, and the demand for accommodation in holiday homes has increased.

This corresponds to a growth of 66,53%, and compared to 2017, an impressive 185,68% growth can be seen.
