Croatia can really be proud of the standards in its camps, which are sufficiently mentioned in numerous prestigious international awards and recognitions, and this has been recognized by our guests, who are more and more from year to year.
According to the collected data, the Croatian Camping Association (KUH) was realized in the Croatian camping in August an increase in the number of overnight stays compared to last year of + 4%. The same increase in the number of overnight stays was realized in July, and with the mentioned growth the minus of the pre-season was covered, and number of overnight stays in Croatian camps from the beginning of the year to 31.8. increased by + 2% compared to last year. By the way, in the first eight months, 87% of the total annual overnight stays in camps are realized.
"In the first six months, due to bad weather, we had a decline of 5-6 percent, but with excellent results in July and August, we managed to cover the deficit and ultimately achieved a growth of 4 percent. Also, the situation on the ground tells us that we can expect growth in September, of course if the positive weather conditions allow it. "Points out Adriano Palman, director of the Croatian Camping Association, and adds that the biggest obstacle to better and faster development of camps in Croatia is not solving the issue of tourist land, and concludes that this problem must be resolved as soon as possible.
By the way, the camps are constantly recording a small but positive growth, so in recent years there has been a growth of 10%. In the total capacities of Croatian tourism, camps participate with 26 percent, and 24 percent of overnight stays are realized in over 237.000 accommodation capacities. By the way, we have a total of 571 camps in Croatia, of which, in addition to large camps, we also have small camps and small family camps, which are a big hit on the market.
What makes Croatia a perfect choice for campers is its location and proximity. From any part of Europe, Croatia can be reached in just a few hours, especially along the latest, modern highways, and you can be on the accessible Croatian coast after only an hour or two flights from all major European cities. The Croatian Camping Association (KUH) is a voluntary association whose main goal is to bring together natural and legal persons engaged in the provision of camping services and other related activities, in order to protect and promote common economic, professional, scientific and other interests of all its members. 90 percent of camps in Croatia are located in the association.
In case you didn't know, in Croatia it is punishable and it is not allowed to camp in free spaces outside registered campsites or parking lots for caravans and campers.
