CROATIA: Tourism along Adriatic is continuing to grow

Tourism along Adriatic is continuing to grow

Croatia's tourism industry is riding high this year, with travelers flocking to a country that was locked in bitter interethnic war only a decade ago. Around 4.5 million foreign tourists visited Croatia's Adriatic coast in the first seven months of 2005, nine percent more than in the same period last year. In July alone, the number of foreign tourists increased 13 percent compared with the same month last year, and the number of Croatians touring their own country rose 18 percent. The government's goal is to have 11 million tourists in 2010 and to increase the industry's contribution to the economy to 29 percent of gross domestic product, compared with 21 percent last year.
