“We have continued to see strong visitor figures from the UK and Ireland to Croatia in 2014, which adds to the three previous consecutive years of growth,” said Tonko Rilovic, UK and Ireland director of the CNTO.
“Following a successful summer, we are determined to build on Croatia’s continued popularity among the UK and Irish markets. We will be focusing on highlighting Croatia’s suitability as a year-round destination and placing a heightened importance on those destinations which can be visited outside the high season,” he added.
