The diversity of the offer, the local and authentic ingredients, and the wealth of variety of Croatian dishes are additional reasons for many tourists to come, and the development of eno and gastro tourism is also reflected in our strategy. I congratulate everyone who was included in this globally relevant gastronomic guide this year, and I believe that every year, more and more of our restaurants will find their place in it”, said Tonči Glavina, Minister of Tourism and Sports.
