On this occasion, Martina Bienenfeld, director of the Tourist Board, said:
“All programs are free, and I expect that they will attract a large audience. Vibrant late spring and summer in Zagreb are coming, and we designed the Summer BUZZ Zagreb campaign. The tourist results show that Zagreb in the first five months of this year is the destination with the highest number of arrivals and overnight stays in Croatia; I expect to continue this positive trend. I am happy to invite everyone to visit our city, which is full of events and, according to many, the most beautiful in these coming months.”
