Croatia: A Quick Overview

CroatiaPlanning a visit to Croatia? A place that is famous for so many things such as its atmospheric Roman ruins, amphitheatres, beaches, national parks and of course, the Games of Thrones. Here is some useful information if you’re touring Croatia.


Croatia can be divided into three distinguishing climatic zones: central mountainous, inland continental and the coastal Mediterranean.  The climate in coastal areas is hot and dry in the summer season. For the mainland, it is more continental and the winds are colder.  Rain and fog are common during the autumn season.


Croatian is a difficult language, but you don’t have to learn it. Many locals do speak English, German and Italian, so communication shouldn’t be too much of a problem. If you go with a tour operator, you wouldn’t face any difficulties at all.


The local currency in Croatia is kuna, which is available in denominations of 5, 10, 50, 100, 200 and 10000. The coins are valued at 1, 2 and 3. Kuna rate is related to Euro and is higher than neighbouring countries. But travel and accommodation are cheaper, so Croatia is an affordable place to visit.


Water sports are loved by both ten natives and the tourists. You’d come across nearly every water sport in the coastal towns. The country is filled with several natural parks as well where you can enjoy hiking or bicycling. Ski is also popular in the winter season.


Crime levels are low, but you may be a victim of pick pocketing on busy streets. Also don’t leave your valuables in the car or elsewhere unattended.
