Sažetak
According to many international classifications, at the global scale Croatian Islands could be classified as small. The biggest among them is Cres with total area of 405.7 sq km and the most populated island is Krk with 19, 383 inhabitants (according to 2011 census). Islands make up only 5.8% of the total land surface area of the Republic of Croatia, but they accounted for 18.4% of all tourist arrivals and 24.1% of overnight stays in 2017, according to data on tourist trends for the whole country. Even though Croatian Islands have similar natural resources and socio-historical development, there are huge differences among islands based on their geographical position, vicinity to the mainland, population number, distribution of settlements and traffic connection with the mainland. All mentioned factors influence tourist development and make difference in recognizing their tourist potential and perspective. The seasonality of the tourism has impact on the organization of everyday life of islanders but it also makes pressure on sensitive islands’ infrastructure, landscape and islands’ and surrounding sea water environment. The authors researched the social processes on islands caused by tourism and housing, and their influence on changing the island landscapes. They analysed changes in populations and tourist numbers in the last few decades, with a special emphasis on typology of islands taking in consideration mentioned differences among them.
