The German auto club ADAC has put Croatia in third place on the list of places best visited by a personal vehicle in 2011. On the list of favourite camping destinations of German campers Croatia is behind Germany and Italy and in front of Austria and France. The previous year, Croatia was in the 5th place.
Among European regions, the Germans found Istria to be the most popular region for camping this year, for which ADAC notes the most enquiries by its members and which in comparison to last years analyses has increased its advantage for 0.6%. Last year Istria was also the leader and this year it overtook Oberbayern, Suedtirol and Gardasee. ADAC, which counts 17 million members, bases its predictions for the following year on a sample from 1.7 million surveys about the choices of the best routes to the desired destination.
