Slovakia’s sea is again in Croatia

CROATIA remains the top holiday destination for Slovaks again this summer. Greece, Turkey and Egypt have also defended their top positions in the popularity chart, according to a survey of partner travel offices and agencies of the international shopping community Lyoness. The survey also showed that last-minute trips not only to foreign countries but also to Slovak destinations remain popular among Slovak holidaymakers, the SITA newswire wrote.

CROATIA remains the top holiday destination for Slovaks again this summer. Greece, Turkey and Egypt have also defended their top positions in the popularity chart, according to a survey of partner travel offices and agencies of the international shopping community Lyoness. The survey also showed that last-minute trips not only to foreign countries but also to Slovak destinations remain popular among Slovak holidaymakers, the SITA newswire wrote.

Ivana Štefancová, the marketing manager of Lyoness Slovakia sees efforts to save money behind the high popularity of last-minute trips because the price of such holidays is often much lower than the original price and thus many Slovaks are willing to wait for such offers.

In Slovakia Croatia is dubbed "Slovakia’s sea". Last year, travel agencies took almost 112,000 Slovaks to Croatia on organised trips. The total number of Slovaks spending their holiday in Croatia is much higher because many Slovaks travel to this Mediterranean country on their own.
