The Ministry of Tourism launches “The Croatian Islands
ZAGREB, April 17, 2021 – The Ministry of Tourism has launched the campaign “Croatian Islands – COVID-free zones” and will soon publish on the website www.safestayincroatia.hr information on the epidemiological situation in the islands, which have COVID-19 much lower incidence than the counties in which they are located.
“The epidemiological map of Croatia currently shows the islands as part of their counties, although the incidence of the coronavirus on the islands is much lower than in other parts of the counties where they are located,” the ministry said. in a press release.
The website www.safestayincroatia.hr will therefore offer visitors not only information on the epidemiological situation in the different counties, but also separate information on the islands.
Croatia has 78 islands, 524 islets and 642 islets and rocky reefs which are particularly attractive to tourists and which account for a large part of tourism turnover.
Tourism and Sports Minister Nikolina Brnjac said the islands are of exceptional importance to the Croatian tourism industry as they account for a quarter of all overnight stays, with tourists staying on the islands for two days more than the stay of tourists visiting coastal destinations.
“In addition, a third of the accommodation capacity is located on islands, and this is another reason why it is important that we have accurate information about the epidemiological situation on the islands, many of which are green areas. “she said.
The website www.safestayincroatia.hr will also contain information on all COVID-19 test points as well as information on air, land and sea transport links between the islands and the mainland.
