The Croatian Tourism Ministry and the Croatian Tourism Board (HTZ), together with the HDZ office in Moscow, have been conducting additional activities this year again to attract Russian tourists, the ministry said in a statement on Sunday.
It recalled that last week Tourism Minister Anton Kliman held official talks with Foreign and European Affairs Minister Miro Kovac to agree on simplifying and expediting the visa issuance procedure for Russian tourists travelling to Croatia.
Considering the Ministry's efforts and the HTZ's promotional activities, it is evident that our goal is to attract Russian tourists, the ministry said in the statement.
"We are very much pleased with excellent information from Russia regarding tourists' interest in Croatia, as well as with the fact that according to National Geographic, Russians consider Croatia a top destination for a family holiday. That will definitely be one of the topics of a meeting Minister Kliman and the Ambassador of the Russian Federation will have tomorrow," the ministry said.Lire la suite.
