Ahead of the approaching festive season, a broad group of key travel and tourism stakeholders, including ECTAA, is urging again Member States to better coordinate and align their health and travel policy responses to avoid re-imposing restrictions to the freedom of movement across Europe.
ECTAA announced today that it has become a signatory of the Glasgow Declaration on Climate Action in Tourism. The Glasgow Declaration on Climate Action in Tourism unites travel and tourism behind a common set of pathways for climate action, aligning the sector with global commitments and catalysing collaborative solutions to the many challenges facing businesses and destinations globally. The Glasgow Declaration encourages the acceleration of climate action in tourism by securing commitments to reduce emissions in tourism by at least 50% over the next decade and achieve Net Zero as soon as possible before 2050. The Declaration was officially launched at the UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) last week.

Preferred destination 2021 - Croatia
Stretching along the Adriatic Sea, just a stone’s throw from Central Europe, Croatia is a country defined by a rich cultural legacy. Today, history perfectly combines with a youthful spirit and vibrant energy that prove irresistible to those seeking diversity. Breath-taking natural beauty, endless coastlines, diverse gastronomy, adventure, sports and wellness, can be enjoyed all year round. Whether exploring the old city of Dubrovnik, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, island-hopping around the Split archipelago, truffle hunting in Istria, strolling around the Plitvice Lakes, delving into Zagreb’s streets and hidden passages, birdwatching in Kopacki rit, or taking time out with the family on Zlatni Rat beach, there truly is something for everyone in Croatia.

From June on, the ECTAA and CNTB start presenting the most preferred Croatian regions. In November, we are travelling to the beautiful region of Lika & Karlovak. As most have been unable to travel for a long time, everyone has been dreaming about where to travel next, once they are ready and able, or they have put together a bucket list for next summer. Our proposal for the period ahead is what follows.
So let's explore Croatia together month by month! - check our webpage
