A Record Year for Dugopolje – Up 72.5% on 2016!

Located just off the motorway from Zagreb to Ploce, Dugopolje is for many motorists the entry point to Central Dalmatia.

Often overlooked by visitors heading to Split and the islands, things are changing, and rather rapidly! 2017 was a record year for the small town, with a commendable increase in tourists of some 72.5% on 2016, with more than 50,000 visitors coming to Dugopolje.

The popularity of four-star Hotel Katarina has played a large part in that rise, but there have been other factors, such as the development of the region’s cycling tourism offer. Work on the new Central Dalmtatia Tourism Visitor Centre continues, which will be one more reason to pop into this charming town, which offers much more than a motorway exit.
