Croatia Travel Guide

Since I’m from Croatia, I can be a little biased when it comes to it. Croatia is mostly known for its Adriatic Sea, and cities such as Dubrovnik, Split, and Zagreb, but there is so much more, we have stunning lakes and forests, a fascinating history, fantastic wine, and delicious food that will melt your heart. Check everything out in this Croatia Travel Guide!

As I mentioned there are cities such as Dubrovnik and Split, but keep in mind that there is a much more Slavic upper part of Croatia that is a must-see. Zagorje has some of the most fantastic wines and food that you will ever taste such as Kulen, Domaće kobasice, and much more. There is also Istra which has cities such as Rijeka, Pula, and Rovinj which are touristic meccas but are still not explored enough.

Best time to visit Croatia?

Any time it is amazing to visit Croatia, if it is Summer you can visit places such as Split, Rovinj, Rijeka, Dubrovnik or any other city on the Adriatic coastline. In the winter you can visit Slavonija, Zagorje or even our main city Zagreb which was named 4 of the last 5 years in a row the most beautiful Christmas city in Europe.

But keep in mind that the high seasons for the Adriatic coastline cities are from June to August. The weather is at its best, and you can expect picture-perfect skies and long, lazy days at the beach.

What to expect in Croatia

Language in Croatia

The main language spoken in Croatia is Croatian, but since we are mostly a tourist country you can easily hear Italian, German and English languages.

Currency used in Croatia

The currency in Croatia is the Croatian Kuna. 1 Euro is equivalent to about 7,1 HRK.

Credit Cards and ATMs

ATMs are reliable and found in all of the big cities and most of the small towns. However, charges on foreign cards are expensive, so you’ll want to take a card that doesn’t charge you each time you withdraw. Visa, Maestro, Diners Club, and Mastercard are the most commonly accepted credit cards in Croatia.

Is Croatia safe?

Croatia is known for its safety and low crime rates. Since I live in Zagreb I can say that I have never seen anybody get pickpocketed or robbed, but you still need to be careful because you never know, especially during the summer when there is a lot of crowds.
