first_imgDisputes between Slovenia and Croatia over the sea border do not seem to affect the mood of Slovenian tourists, who still, according to a recent survey, prefer to spend their summers on the Croatian sea and, along with Germans and Italians, are the most numerous foreign tourists.The Ljubljana daily Delo conducted a survey that showed that 49 respondents prefer to go on holiday to Croatia, 45 percent spend their summers in Slovenian resorts, 7 percent in Italy, 4 in Spain and 3 percent in Greece. It is interesting that more than 75 respondents say that they will spend the summer in Croatia or spend at least one day on a trip there. According to the Croatian Tourist Board, in recent years the number of arrivals of guests from Slovenia has grown by two to three percent.Most of them cite the geographical proximity of Croatian destinations, natural beauty, family and friendly ties, similarity of language as the reason for coming to Croatia, and we should not ignore the fact that many Slovenes in Croatia have their own holiday properties. Slovenian President Borut Pahor also decided to spend his summer holidays on the Croatian sea, so he announced that he would spend a week with his family in Umag. However, Slovenian Prime Minister Miro Cerar is bypassing Croatia in a big way. He will spend his vacation in August on the Slovenian sea, mountains and lakes, and will also enjoy the beauties of the Montenegrin coast and the Austrian Alps.Slovenian tourism is also recording better results in terms of the number of guests, which prompted the tourist staff of Bled and Bohinj to tell domestic tourists not to come in the height of the main season but in the fall when there are fewer guests.Slovenians mostly visit destinations in Istria and Kvarner, followed by destinations in the Zadar region. Tourist traffic from Slovenia is dominant in the camping segment. In the segment of commercial capacities, family accommodation is in second place, followed by hotels. A relatively high share of Slovenians’ traffic is made up of arrivals and overnight stays in non-commercial accommodation facilities.Take a look at the key features of tourist traffic from Slovenia herelast_img read more
