How did we do it?

As we mentioned above, Croatia is an increasingly popular destination. Therefore, this year we decided to calculate exactly how much more popular it has become compared to last year.

Among different approaches to making a list of the most popular Instagram locations in Croatia, we have decided to pick sights instead of cities. That is why you will find Dubrovnik Walls instead of Dubrovnik city on our list. Anyway, we made a list of the most popular sights with help from Google Travel service

In order to define the most popular destinations, we used Google reviews. However, we only considered the destinations with more than 500 reviews. Therefore, we got a list of 190 locations. The next thing was collecting the number of Instagram mentions in both Croatian and English language. In the end, we sorted the locations according to the number of mentions and got our final list of the 50 most popular Instagram locations in Croatia. 

Below each sight, you can see information about whether its popularity has increased or decreased compared to 2022. Of course, on the list for the year 2023 we also have several newcomers who bravely fought for their places, thereby displacing several of last year’s favorites.
