I am of the opinion that the activities we carry out will not increase the number of renters, accordingly we have been carrying out activities for years and we do not have major increases in the number of accommodation capacities in private accommodation. Compared to 2017, we have an increase in beds in private accommodation from 6.183 to 6.417 (4%), which is a trend that is present throughout Croatia and which has no direct connection with the benefits we have with landlords, mostly about the categorization of accommodation for holidays”, Is the opinion of Cvitković.
