Number Of Hungarian Tourists Visiting Croatia Up 7.5%
The number of Hungarian tourists visiting Croatia went up by more than 7% in January-July this year, compared with the same period of 2017, the head of the Croatian tourism agency in Budapest said.

The number of all foreign tourists visiting the country in the first seven months was 9.725 million, up 5.3% on the same period of last year, Marin Skenderovic told MTI.

They spent altogether 49.672 million guest nights in the neighbouring country, up also by 5.3%, he added. The number of Hungarian tourists however went up by 7.5% to 338,800 and the guest nights they spent in Croatia increased by 7% to 1.622 million, he said.

If this trend continues, the number of Hungarian tourists may easily pass a record 600,000, compared with 572,000 in 2018, Skenderovic said.
