Hoteli Makarska published their preliminary 2018 financial results.
According to it, sales revenues in 2018 amounted to HRK 79.6m, which is a 6.6% increase YoY. The increase in revenues could mostly be attributed to a rise in average accommodation prices in combination with redistribution of sales channels.
