Frequently asked questions about travelling to Croatia

What's the weather like in Croatia?

Coastal Croatia has a typically Mediterranean climate. Along the coasts, you can expect the average temperature in the summer to fall in the mid to late 20sºC but can peak into the 30sºC. Winters along the coast are obviously cooler but you shouldn't expect them to get below 5ºC. Inland Croatia can get a bit nippier in the winter with temperatures often falling below 0ºC. However, the summer can be the complete opposite, with temperatures hitting the high 30sºC.

When's the best time to visit Croatia?

The best time to visit Croatia is from late May to early July. It will be hot enough to enjoy the coast and the Islands but without ending up drenched in sweat if you do decide to do a day of culture, walking around visiting sites.
Peak season is July and August, and you will find actually that a lot of Croats head to the coast in this period to grab some rays themselves. It can be very hot in this period and it will be busy in the tourist hotspots.

Do I need a visa to visit Croatia?

If you hold a valid British passport then you don’t need a holiday or tourist visa to enter Croatia, however your passport must be valid when returning from Croatia. If you want to soak up the true culture of Croatia, how about working there? UK nationals are able to work in other EU countries including Croatia visa-free!

Can you drink the tap water in Croatia?

The tap water is safe to drink. In fact it is said that Croatia has some of the cleanest water in Europe.
