Croatia and the slogans they tried to tempt us to the country earlier this year

Croatia hasn’t appeared in Just about Travel for a few weeks. In case you thought that was an oversight on our behalf, here is more news from the Adriatic coastal country.

Not content with attracting more of us every month – September’s figure showed that 11% more of us travelled there that month compared to the year before – they now want us to consider it a holiday destination for every day of the year! for a few years, Croatia used the slogan – The Mediterranean as it once was. Now they have one more specific.

Croatia 365 is a new campaign that will start this month. Although 413,513 of us have visited the country already this year from the UK and 43,734 from Ireland, they want more. Overall, UK visitor numbers have grown by 11% over last year. From Ireland it is even higher at 18%. Now they want to increase the number of all-year-round visitors to the country. Whichever month of the year, whichever day of the week, Croatia is a destination you should consider they are saying.

Croatia 365 will showcase Croatia’s cultural, gastronomic, adventure, islands, wellness & health, beach and mountain offerings. In fact when you come down to it, what hasn’t Croatia got?

If you are visiting the country over half term then your visit will coincide with a new event designed to heighten awareness of the gastronomic heritage of the country. In Dubrovnik, there is the Good Food Festival and there must be a lot on offer as the guide is 30 pages long! (It’s actually 60 pages but Croat is on one page and English the next.) It all starts with pizzazz when the whole of the main street in Stradun when it will be taken over by chefs, hoteliers, growers, restaurants, cheese-makers, wine-makers and suppliers all presenting their products on tables stretching from end to the other.

The same week coincides with the Zagreb Film Festival and the Biograd Boat Show and, although the Istria Gourmet Festival is over, there are many restaurant offers on local seafood dishes.

So Croatia, for half-term time looks a good bet.
