NEW AND FRESHLY RENOVATED ADRIATIC HOTELS AND CONFERENCE HALLS

The Adriatic has for several years been the centre of large investments in tourism infrastructure. Europe’s closest and for many the most beautiful seaside is a magnet for local and international investors. This year we have also witnessed many new ventures confirming the announcement that more than 50 new hotels will be opened between 2016 and 2018. Given such a pace of growth, we can expect even more to be coming on stream. In the editorial office of Kongres magazine we have selected some of the most interesting ones for you:
