Frequently Asked Questions about travel to Croatia
When is the best time to visit Croatia?
July and August are the warmest months in Croatia, when the sea temperature reaches up to a very comfortable 28° C (83° F) and air temperature exceeds well over 35° C ( 95° F). This is the peak of the season, especially between July 15 and Aug 15, and you can expect crowds on the most popular beaches. If you prefer the weather not so hot and less crowds, then June and September are ideal for you. The water is still warm and you will get plenty of sunshine. Swimming and sunbathing is also possible in May or October (if you come from Scandinavia or Canada and are not afraid of colder water). Depending on the weather, even April is sometimes nice and warm enough for the beach, though there's no guarantee that early in the year.
Outside of these months (November to March) is very much the off-season and many tourist-centric businesses shut down either for their own vacations or to make renovations and improvements.
Although Croatia joined the European Union in July 2013, it is not a member of the Euro and has retained its own currency, the Kuna. While you may find some businesses accept Euros, the rate is unlikely to be favorable. Foreign currency can be exchanged in banks, exchange offices, post offices, travel agencies, hotels, camps and marinas though you may get a better rate using an ATM.
Are ATMs (Cash machines) easy to find in Croatia?
ATMs are readily available in all resorts, towns and cities in Croatia. Type of cards most commonly accepted : MasterCard, Maestro, Visa, Visa Electron, Diners cards.
