Will Croatia be the corona free country this summer? For sure it will! It takes us another week for Croatia to become the corona free country, after more than 100 days of infection with Covid19. The fact is that now almost everyone is acting as if the virus is really gone.
With countries around Europe reducing coronavirus restrictions, opening borders and creating new ways to ensure safe travel for visitors, summer holidays in Europe are becoming a realistic possibility for relief-seeking travelers.
Along with creative concepts such as "air bridges", "travel bubbles" and "holiday corridors" between countries that have officially come out of the coronavirus crisis (and do not require quarantine for visitors), governments, international institutions and specialized tourism organizations are surging with new initiatives and protocols first to permit the resumption of cross-border vacation travel and then, in a few weeks, of international travel in time for the peak summer season.
Thus, according to the internet portal EBD (European Best Destinations), Croatia is among the 20 safest countries in the world when it comes to tourist travel after the corona virus. These destinations benefit from proximity to hospitals and have a higher number of hospital beds per inhabitant than the majority of European countries, have implemented very specific protocols concerning hygiene in accommodations, restaurants and shops, and imposed measures such as the changing of air conditioning filters between each traveller stay, availability of masks and social distancing. Even 3 Croatian destinations are on the list of the 20 safest.
Popular with celebrities, families, lovers and fans of gastronomy, culture, nature and water sports, Cavtat is the destination.
Croatia is among the European countries least affected by coronavirus with up to 20 times fewer infected people per million inhabitants than in other European countries. Croatia is also one of the European countries with the highest number of hospital beds per inhabitant. The hospital in Dubrovnik is a 20-minute drive from Cavtat while the airport is only 10 minutes away.Cavtat has a large selection of private villas, tourist apartments and small family hotels (selected as travelers’ favorites this summer). In addition, Croatia has implemented hygienic and sanitary measures in larger hotels. Reopening to travelers on July 1. No quarantine requested.
Zagreb is among the favorite places to visit on EBD’s lists: a “travelers’ favorite destination” in Croatia, a “must-see destination for a city break,” the starting point for a road trip in Croatia, “a romantic destination” throughout the year, and a destination recognized for its Christmas market.
Croatia has been rather spared from coronavirus, with up to 20 times fewer infected people than in any other European country. Well-equipped in healthcare, it also has more hospital beds per inhabitant than most European countries.“Come enjoy its thousands of terraces in summer, read the newspaper or watch a football match (the Croats are passionate about football), visit its many beautiful parks, architectural wonders and historical monuments. It’s very Instagrammable, too,” says EBD. Reopening to travelers on July 1. No quarantine requested.
The principal seaport and the third-largest city in Croatia after Zagreb and Split. Selected as the European capital of culture and named among the Best European Destinations 2020 by EBD,Rijeka is a perfect destination for a safe European trip. It likely will be one of the top destinations this summer. “Croatians love the coffee terraces and the many beaches with crystal clear waters around Rijeka.”Croatia has been spared the worst of the coronavirus, with up to 20 times fewer infected people than in any other European country. Well-equipped in healthcare, it also has more hospital beds per inhabitant than most European countries. Reopening to travelers July 1. No quarantine requested.
Yet not everything is so bad as we thought. Croatia has great chances to save the tourist season to some extent this year as well, despite the situation and problems that have befallen the whole world. But the global experience of a pandemic will permanently affect our values and change aspects of our lives and, specifically, in tourism may result in a shift towards more spatially, environmentally and socially responsible behavior. Tourism after the crown age will be different, and it could and should be better!
