In recent years, Croatia has become one of the most fashionable places to visit in Europe. Yet, it has retained its identity as an unspoilt location free from the large-scale development and commercialisation other destinations have suffered. As such, camping in Croatia is a desirable option, with much to offer couples and families alike.

With its plethora of islands, Croatia has plenty of tranquil spots even during the high season. Get off the beaten track and discover small fishing villages and the rich vegetation that's home to a variety of wildlife. Nature lovers will find camping in Croatia irresistible, thanks to its many national parks, which offer diverse environments teeming with flora and fauna. One of the most celebrated is Plitvice, which is set in the karst area of central Croatia and features lakes arranged in cascades that change colour depending on the balance of minerals and organisms in the water.

Although Croatia's main attraction for many is Dubrovnik, the city of Split is not to be missed. It features Emperor Diocletian's palace, an impressive building constructed in the fourth century AD and enormously significant as the world's most complete remains of a Roman palace. The city is also home to several museums and galleries, as well as being a centre for sports.

Shopping in Croatia

Croatia is great for shopping as it has a variety of locally manufactured products, such as the tie worn by millions daily around the world. They are so proud of manufacturing this product that they have a national day to celebrate the connection. The small shops running through the alleyways of Dubrovnik, Zagreb, Split and some villages are great places to buy traditional crafts. Among the most typical products are toys carved in wood; glass is also one of the country’s most popular materials. The most prestigious glassware-producing area is Samobor, where you can find everything from kitchen utensils to crystal jewellery. 

Croatia has a long craftsmanship tradition, including weaving and bobbing lace. Lepoglava, and some regions of the coast, have been dedicated to this craft. Therefore, in many small shops in large cities such as Zagreb, Dubrovnik and Split and surrounding villages, you can find various items, such as tablecloths and embroidered products. UNESCO protects the technique used in Lepoglava to braid the threads.

Umbrellas are the most popular accessory in the Zagreb region; the capital is full of shops with these items available. The Croatian umbrella maintains the ascetics of the original umbrellas that were made in the 18th century. 

Shops and supermarkets are open from around 8am to 7 or 8pm, Monday to Friday. And usually until 2pm on Saturdays. No shops are open on Sundays. 

During the peak tourist season, business hours change significantly. 

Croatian Money

Croatia uses the euro as its official currency. It is advised to carry some cash, but ATMs are readily available in almost all resorts, towns and cities. Cash is no longer king in Norway, and almost all establishments now accept electronic payment by card or phone.

Croatian Climate

Croatia's climate is determined by its geography, characterised by a mixture of mountains, plains, forests and a long intertidal zone. Croatia is divided into two principal climate regions - Mediterranean and Continental.


The peak summer months of July and August bring the best weather, with blissfully hot days and ideal water temperatures for swimming. Hvar Island gets the most sun hours, followed by Split, Korčula Island and Dubrovnik.

In May, June, September and October, you can expect pleasant sunny days ideal for swimming in the Adriatic Sea and sunbathing. It's also a perfect time for outdoor activities such as hiking, mountain biking, rafting and sea-kayaking. The steady north-westerly wind is great for sailing in spring and early summer.

Winters in continental Croatia are cold. Christmas brings a great atmosphere to Zagreb's streets, even with the snow, plus there's skiing too - many of the coastal attractions close down for winter.
