Do I need a visa to travel to Croatia?

Your visa requirements can change according to your citizenship (and also according to the length and purpose of your visit). We always recommend that you check out our visa guide for more information.  

What is the currency used in Croatia?

You’ll need to get Euros with you when you’re travelling to the captivating country of Croatia.  

When is the best time to visit Croatia?

Croatia tends to be spectacular year-round. But the best time to visit Croatia depends on what you wanna do. For the beach-lovers and island hoppers among us - summer is the best season. But if you’re looking for casual exploration, hiking and cultural celebrations, spring or winter will be the best time for you.  

What should I pack for a trip to Croatia?

So, you’ve finally decided to travel to Croatia? Awesome! Here’s a list of some essentials (other than your passport, ofc) you should get with you:  

  - Lightweight clothing: That’s made from breathable fabrics. Perfect for the summer air and for layering up in the cooler months.  

  - Beachwear: Croatia's stunning coastline begs for beach time. So, don't forget your swimsuit, flip-flops, and a beach towel. 

  - Walking shoes: There’s gonna be a lot of exploring on the beautiful cobblestoned streets. And you’re gonna wish you had comfy shoes.  

  - Daypack: Perfect for carrying water, sunscreen, and your camera while exploring the streets 

How many days should I spend in Croatia?

Croatia might be small but it sure does pack a punch. On an average, if you wanna just visit the main attractions, 2-3 days are enough for Croatia. We highly recommend that you visit all the other Balkan beauties while you’re there. (Like we do on our Best of Balkans trip). 

Is it safe to drink tap water in Croatia?

Yep. You’ll be fine drinking tap water in Croatia. But if you’re visiting a more rural area and are doubtful, it might be a good idea to double check with your Trip Manager. 

What is ATM access like in Croatia?

ATMs tend to be easily accessible in Croatia, especially in the bigger cities where you’ll find them at every bank. But if you’re heading off the beaten track, you might wanna carry some cash with you. Don’t forget to use ATMs only in secure, well-lit areas.  

Can I pay by card in Croatia?

Mostly yes. Most restaurants and shops accept popular debit and credit cards. But for smaller purchases (like those souvenirs you’ll buy), we recommend that you get some cash.
