Croatia tourist office claims resorts among safest for foreigners

LONDON -- Did you know that not one of the 5 million foreign visitors to Croatia's Adriatic resorts this year was mugged or attacked?

This question was posed by a spokeswoman for the Croatian National Tourist Office, who sought to raise the country's profile during a World Travel Market press conference.

"There aren't too many European coastal resorts that can make that claim," she said.

The spokeswoman offered two more tidbits:

  • After Belgium, Croatia is the destination where vacationers are least likely to fall ill, according to a British consumer publication, Holiday Which.
  • The Adriatic waters off Croatia received the highest possible clean-water rating by Germany's ADC, which is comparable to the AAA in the U.S.
