Croatias Adriatic Gem Limits Number Of Tourists To Fight Overcrowding

DUBROVNIK, Croatia – The Croatian town of Dubrovnik, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and picturesque coastal resort on the Adriatic, is at risk of being overwhelmed by visitors from the cruise ships that arrive daily.

Between January and June, almost 280,000 tourists from 188 cruise tours visited the 800 year-old city. Last year, a whopping 749,000 people disembarked from 539 cruise ships that moored in Dubrovnik’s harbor.

Shopkeepers, restaurateurs and the 1,500 locals that live in the Old city – an area inside the coastal fort that featured in the TV series Game of Thrones – struggled to serve the crowds of guests.
