The COVID-19 pandemic is affecting all segments of our life, as well as our traveling plans. Summer of 2020 is almost here and we are all wondering how long will coronavirus be a part of our lives and are trying to get used to „new normal“.
Summer in Croatia
Croatian tourism Minister Gari Cappelli suggest any restart of the summer season will prioritize activities light on interaction, predisposed to social-distancing. Adventage in this situation are activities on wide-open spaces. Boats, campsites and vacation homes at the top of the list and that makes us very excited.
Plans are already in the works since Prime Minister Andrej Plenković’s government introduced measures targeting catering and tourism and establishing free movement within Croatia.
Chances are high that the water sports season in Croatia will start in May. It would probably be difficult to arrange opening of hotels and apartments for guests, but not of marinas. Main reason for the early opening is primarily due to the positive development of the coronavirus situation in Croatia.
