Development of sports-recreational tourism in Croatia

Tourism in Croatia is on the turning point of its development. Following the cessation of hostilities and war, the country, and the tourism sector within it, are undergoing a process of recovery. One of the most significant areas of tourism to be developed is sports-recreational tourism. Sports and recreational activities and programmes are being offered as part of the tourism package, especially in some Adriatic tourist destinations and larger towns in Croatia.
