Thus, in strong competition this year as well, we singled out individual destinations, attractions, events, but also hotels, camps, marinas and numerous other entities that make up the overall tourist offer. However, on this occasion, I would like to emphasize that behind all of the above are the people who, with their work and contribution, are actually most responsible for these excellent results, which we are all sincerely proud of.

Therefore, it is necessary to further encourage the growth of other sectors through tourism. I invite all stakeholders to a dialogue on important issues of the sector in order to welcome the next tourist year even more prepared and achieve even better results, and I congratulate once again the award winners, the champions of Croatian tourism.”, said the vice president of the Croatian Chamber of Commerce for tourism, trade and finance, Josip Zaher.TOP 10 OF CROATIAN TOURISM – October 26, 2017 TOURIST DESTINATION OF THE YEAR· Rovinj· Split· Crikvenica· Olive grove· Baranja· Osijek Hotel Monte Mulini, Rovinj TRAVEL AGENCY OF THE YEAR· Calvados Club Luxury Travel, Split· Fiore Tours, Porec· Uniline Travel Company, Pula TOURIST EVENT OF THE YEAR· Špancirfest· Poreč Open Air – festival of life· Rab Fair Split CATEGORYFINALISTSWINNER Marina Frapa, Rogoznica CAMP OF THE YEAR· Camping Resort Lanterna, Porec· Polidor Camping Park, FuntanaCamping Resort Lanterna, Porec Family hotel Amarin INNOVATION IN TOURISM OF THE YEAR· Family hotel Amarin· Perfect Experience Creator Program (Valamar Riviera dd)· Product Eltel Smart Cycling Bike Point MARINA OF THE YEAR· ACI Marina Dubrovnik, Dubrovnik· Marina Frapa, Rogoznica· Marina Vrsar, Vrsar HOTEL OF THE YEAR· Hotel Monte Mulini, Rovinj· Valamar Isabella Island Resort, Porec· Valamar Lacroma Dubrovnik Hotel, Dubrovnik RESTAURANT OF THE YEAR· Bokeria Kitchen & Wine, Split· Gourmet Restaurant San Rocco, Brtonigla· Restaurant Villa Ariston, Opatija· Zinfandel’s Restaurant, Zagreb Rector’s Palace, Zadar Restaurant Villa Ariston, Opatija ANTON ŠTIFANIĆ AWARD· Annual Anton Štifanić Award· Lifetime Achievement AwardAnte Mrvica- Jadrolinija SplitNiko Bulićlast_img read more
