The western part of our country has remained among the most popular, so there is great interest in accommodation in the famous mountains. At Zlatar, during the Labor Day and Easter holidays, the occupancy of accommodation capacities is expected to go above 70 percent.
"Traditionally, there is a great interest for Zlatar during the spring and summer months. We stand out as a destination known for those who prefer a real vacation in pristine nature. Accommodation capacities in hotels are about 60 percent full, and the demand for private cottages is higher. Due to pandemic, people more often opt for separate accommodation units ", said to RINA, Branko Pucarevic director of Zlatar Tourist Organization.
