Almost a third more Hungarians traveled to Croatia in 2022 than in the previous year, and the figures are close to the record numbers registered in 2019.
Ivana Herceg, the director of the Croatian National Tourist Board’s representation in Hungary, told Hungarian news agency MTI that
last year, 602,000 Hungarian tourists spent three million guest nights in Croatia,
which means 31 percent more guests and 21 percent more guest nights compared to 2021.
The Kvarner Bay remains the most popular region for Hungarians, with 850,000 overnight stays, 605,000 on the Istrian peninsula, and 538,000 in the Split-Dalmatia county.

As in previous years, Hungarian guests spent most nights in private accommodations, accounting for more than 50 percent of all nights.
Herceg remarked that Croatia joined the euro area and the Schengen area on January 1 this year. Until January 14, prices will be displayed in both kuna and euros and both currencies will be accepted, but cash payments will be refunded in euros only.
