Over 1 million tourists arrived in Istria in August 2018, generating 8.5 million overnight stays all over the peninsula
The region of Marčana in Istria, where Candy Brick villas are located, had an increase of 9% arrivals in comparison to August 2017. This generated an impressive 5,000 more overnight stays. These numbers keep increasing over the years.
The good news about these numbers are that they show the region of Istria is attracting an incredibly large amount of tourists. This is impressive considering that there are only 208 thousand inhabitants in an area of just 2,813 km².
Istria is divided into 10 officially designated cities and 31 rural municipalities. During the summer peaks, it can get overcrowded and lack of options for accommodation creating more opportunity for rentals.
