Croatia has a Mediterranean climate along the coast and a continental climate inland. Pack light clothing for summer months and warmer clothing for winter. A swimsuit, sunblock, and a hat are musts for the sunny beaches. Comfortable walking shoes are essential for exploring historic cities.
Croatia is considered very safe for tourists. However, like anywhere, it’s good to stay aware of your surroundings, especially in busy tourist areas.
Croatia is part of the European Union, so many visitors won’t need a visa for short stays. It’s best to check the current visa requirements with your local Croatian embassy if you want to be 100% sure.
The best time to visit depends on what you want to do. The warmest months are July and August, perfect for beach holidays. However, May, June, and September offer pleasant weather and fewer crowds.
Croatia recently switched to Euros (EUR) at the start of 2023. Therefore, you won’t need to exchange them for Kunas anymore. Credit cards are widely accepted, but it’s worth carrying some cash for smaller establishments.
