This scientific paper proposes a mental-verbal model for the present and future synergistic relation between the economy and tourism in the Republic of Croatia. Modern economy environment gives rise to a number of questions regarding the selection of the model for the development of economy and tourism in the Republic of Croatia. With its considerable share in the gross domestic product (GDP), tourism represents an important segment of the national economy. The trend of the continuous decrease of GDP and the processes of globalisation that have spread across the planet require serious considerations with regard to the future development of Croatia's tourism. In order to assess the impact of the globalisation processes on the development of the tourism in the world as a whole, global tourism trends and tendencies by the year 2030 will be analysed. In addition, activities involved in Croatian tourist services will be examined with the aim of responding as efficiently as possible to the requirements of the Croatian competitiveness within the modern global environment. The impact of traffic on the overall experience that tourists take with them after visiting the Republic of Croatia, as well as trends in tourist arrivals due to the means of transport in the future will be analysed.
