50% lower prices in hotels, restaurants and national parks on 16-25 Oct

More than 250 businesses in the hospitality industry have offered their participation in the programme designed by the Tourism Ministry to offer lower prices in a week in the off-season, and 60 more applications are also being considered, Tourism Minister Nikolina Brnjac said on Wednesday.

The campaign called "Tjedan Odmora Vrijedan" ("A week's worth of vacationing in Croatia" in an unofficial translation") is scheduled for 16-25 October when local and foreign visitors are offered accommodation, restaurant meals, and admission tickets to national parks at 50% lower prices throughout Croatia.

The campaign has been launched by the Tourism Ministry for the first time to encourage Croatian and foreign tourists to visit Croatia's resorts, national parks and other tourist facilities during the off-season.

Minister Brnjac said that the campaign would be conducted more than once a year in the future.
