Is Croatia safe?

Basically, Croatia is a safe country, but we still recommend you not to carry too much money or other valuables with you, especially to the beach, as there could be pickpockets there. Of course, this depends on the destination, but in general, in more attractive destinations you should be more careful.

What is the weather like in Croatia?

The climate in Croatia is the Mediterranean type. Many people still swim in the sea in September (of course that depends on the year and on the person), and the season starts around Easter. Winters are usually mild, especially on the coast. Thus, bigger coastal destinations like Dubrovnik or Split are great places to visit even in winter as a city break.

The only thing we should warn you about is that it can get really hot during the summer. Luckily, you have the sea, and if you book a villa from our offer, you will also have a swimming pool to cool down during the hot days of your vacation.

Furthermore, most of the accommodation especially the luxury accommodation includes a free Wifi connection. This has become a basic service these days free of charge on most places. So, there is no need to be offline on your vacation.
