    This paper applies an indicator system for evaluating the sustainability of tourism in Croatian coastal tourist destinations. The applied indicator system is based on the guidelines provided by the World Tourism Organization, EUROSTAT, the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, and the European Union Tourism Sustainability Group. To simplify measurement and facilitate comparative analyses between analyzed destinations, synthetic indicators are constructed based on normalized indicator data and multivariate analysis-based indicator weights. The results in this paper are a first, though still rough, quantification of tourism sustainability in Croatia.
