ZAGREB, 1.6.2013.

At least 269 hotspots offering free Internet access over a wireless local area network are expected to be set up throughout Croatia by July 1, the Tourism Ministry announced this past week.

Of that number, 244 such sites will be set up along the coast and 25 in continental parts of the country, the ministry said, adding that it will co-fund the project with 1.5 million kuna.

The ministry believes that this will help in further promoting and boosting the competitiveness of Croatian tourist destinations.

Most of the new hotspots will be set up in Istria and Kvarner.
