Planning a Trip to Croatia

Croatia is a modestly-sized European country, with a human count of close to 4.5m. It shares its national boundaries with Hungary, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Serbia, and Italy. Known as Hrvatska in Croatian language, Croatia is gradually recovering from the shambles it was left to during the war-prone ’90s to exhibit its glory to the whole world. Whether it’s the historic Walls of Dubrovonik, the Plitvice waterfalls, or the war-affected villages like Vrsar slowly becoming normal, Croatia just never ceases to surprise its visitors.

Traveling to Croatia

Choose the time to head to Croatia, keeping cost in perspective. Most people visit the country during summer (April-September). July and August are considered the peak months for tourists — the time also being the most expensive to travel to Croatia. At the end of September, tourist traffic is generally less, which makes it the ideal time to visit the place for people on a budget and who don’t like crowd and commotion.

Needless to mention, have your passport, visa and all vital travel documents handy. In most scenarios, European Union citizens won’t need a visa to enter Croatia. Get in touch with the nearest Croatian embassy or consulate for further details.

Plan your itinerary and pick the counties you’d like to visit. Croatia is basically composed of 20 regions — the primary regions being Dalmatia, Istria, Slavonia, and Kvarner. Zagreb (the Croatian capital), Split and Dubrovonik are the major cities.

Many Croatians speak good English. However, learning the official language of the country indicates your willingness to learn more about the country’s culture and tradition — and for the effort, you’ll end up being well appreciated and respected by the locals. Also, besides Croatian, some basic understanding of Italian and German is a bonus.

Kuna is Croatia’s currency. Though the Euro is widely acceptable in Croatia, it’s always handy to have some spare kuna. Exchange your local currency for kuna well in advance, or at least when you arrive in Croatia.

Research the tourist attractions. Croatia has a well-balanced mix of history, nature, rural life (Vrsar) and modern infrastructure to offer. Besides, it’s also known for its health resorts and spas. So, do your research and pick your spots.
