“The Washington Post, one of the leading American daily newspapers, published an article about ‘digital nomads’ who spent several months in Croatia and Dubrovnik during the pandemic”, said Ina Rodin, director of the Croatian National Tourist Board in the United States. Apart from ‘digital nomads’, Croatia is also interesting for binational couples who, due to the pandemic and limited travel opportunities, organized their meeting in Croatia.
The article points out the importance of the newly established direct line from America to Croatia, one both countries have long been waiting for. American Airlines began operating three weekly trips between Dubrovnik and Philadelphia, serving travelers from June 2019.
Sarah Morlock, a freelance writer and social media manager from Indiana, who works remotely, spent October and November in Dubrovnik with her partner, constantly sharing her contentment with the readers.
The Washington Post mentions Dubrovnik’s direct effort to appeal to ‘digital nomads’ introducing ultra-fast broadband internet and holding conferences like “Dubrovnik for digital nomads.”
“At the beginning of 2021, Croatia is set to introduce a hotly anticipated digital-nomad visa, which will make it the second country in Europe and the fifth in the world to do so,“ the Washington Post emphasizes.
