Number of tourist arrivals in Dubrovnik 2011-2018

Overnight tourist arrivals in the city of Dubrovnik in Croatia have increased at a fast pace, reaching almost 1.3 million in 2018. This is not including the large number of excursionists and cruise passengers that enter the city every day during the peak season.

Coping with Dubrovnik’s popularity

For many years the city of Dubrovnik has been a leading destination in the Mediterranean. It is known for its historical old town, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and as one of the most picturesque walled cities in the world. As in many of Europe’s most prominent tourist cities however, increasing visitor numbers have led to problems with overtourism, to the point that UNESCO warned that Dubrovnik’s world heritage status was at risk. In order to cope with the limited capacity and resources, the city launched plans in 2017 to make tourism more sustainable, including limiting the number of cruise ships calling at the port and the number of visitors entering the city.

Tourism across Croatia

As in Dubrovnik, there has been a growing number of international tourist arrivals throughout Croatia. The country has various coastal cities on the Adriatic Sea that are also popular tourist destinations. The Dalmatia region, where Dubrovnik is based, covers much of the coastline of Croatia and includes the city of Split. The Istrian peninsula in the north, where the city of Pula is based, is also popular. According to Croatia’s national tourist board, the capital Zagreb (based in the central region) was the most visited city in Croatia.
