It was held today 33st session of the Tourist Board of the Croatian National Tourist Board at which the members adopted the Decision on the approval of funds for the implementation of marketing cooperation with top Croatian athletes in 2024, as well as the Decision on the selection of projects of local tourist communities on touristic underdeveloped area and continent in 2024

This year, cooperation with a total of 11 Croatian athletes on the promotion of Croatia as a tourist destination, among which are Sandra Elkasević, Ivica Kostelić, Matea Jelić, Damir Martin, Matea Parlov Kostro, Šime and Mihovil Fantela i dr.

"When it comes to the promotion of Croatian tourism through sports, we pay special attention to the visibility, popularity and monitoring of the athletes themselves, that is, their communication channels, in order to coordinate our joint activities in the best possible way with the promotional goals of Croatian tourism. We also have the European Football Championship in Germany ahead of us, as well as the Summer Olympics in Paris, which we will use for additional promotion and visibility of our country in the world." he said Kristjan Staničić, director of the Croatian Tourist Board, adding that Croatia is globally most recognizable precisely for tourism and sports.

"Croatia achieved record results in the pre-season this year as well, which confirms 11 percent better traffic in arrivals and 9 percent better in overnight stays. This is just a further confirmation of how we profile ourselves as a year-round tourist destination, and today at the Council we made more new decisions that will strengthen our promotion and offer. We continue to promote the synergy of sports and tourism through cooperation with our sportsmen and women, as well as national sports federations, and through decisions on support for projects of local tourist boards for the continent and underdeveloped tourist areas, we encourage the development of offers in all parts of Croatia. These are activities for which every year, including this year, we secured record funds, and I am happy when we see excellent results on concrete indicators, and I believe that this year's cooperation will also be an additional step forward in the promotion of Croatia.", she concluded Nikolina Brnjac, Minister of Tourism and Sports.
