This is the result of numerous promotional activities that we carry out during the year, with the greatest attention being paid to the presentation of health and nautical tourism, which are the most recognizable segments of our tourist offer among Russians. “, concluded Ružička. “Russia is a significant emitting market for Croatia, which, among other things, is confirmed by the daily consumption of Russian tourists, which is 50 percent higher than the average. It is important for us to continue good tourism cooperation and strengthen our visibility in this market. I am extremely pleased that the largest Russian tour operators have recognized our continuous work on improving quality, which is why they have created additional offers for Croatia. “, said the State Secretary of the Ministry of Tourism, Tonči Glavina. The Croatian National Tourist Board is once again presenting the Croatian tourist offer at the MITT fair, which is being held in its 26th edition in Moscow until March 14.
