This year Croatia became Austria’s partner country. The event was attended by approximately 160,000 visitors, including hoteliers, agencies, transport companies and tourism boards.
The speech and presentation of Croatia as a partner was very timely, because interest in traveling in Austria is at a very high level, and Croatia itself is among the favorite foreign destinations of Austrians. Austria is very popular in winter and summer. Last summer, the country received 63% more visitors from Croatia than in 2019. A study by the Austrian State Tourist Office claims that 22% of Austrian tourists want to visit Croatia in the spring and summer of 2023.
