More international promotion for the city of Split, as Tourism Minister Darko Lorencin visited South Korea to explore ways of improving tourism connections with one of Croatia’s fastest growing markets, up from 16,000 tourists in 2010 to more than 220,000 so far this year.
One of the reasons has been the success of a romantic reality show, which shows Split in all its glory (see the video below), and The Korea Times reported on Lorencin’s visit, citing two destinations in particular – Split and Plitvice Lakes:
“At the coastal city of Split, tourists can see unique Roman heritage, including UNESCO-protected Diocletian’s Palace. The city was built around the palace, which is known as one of the most complete architectural and cultural features on the Croatian Adriatic coast.
“It is very interesting to see Roman heritage next to modern structures. Altogether, they create a unique atmosphere where you can feel like you are in a time machine,” Lorencin said.
