Travel guide

A destination always rediscovered
Attracting a wide range of guests, Croatia has developed and maintained an infrastructure suitable for both adventurers and guests seeking a certain level of comfort. We systematically and permanently strive to raise the price/quality ratio to a higher level, at the same time complying with the postulates of sustainable development and producing a harmonious satisfaction for both the guest/service user and the host/service provider.

We therefore wish to create a win-win situation for both of them. Such development, tailored to the needs of Croatian citizens and foreign guests, aims for the domicile population to participate in improvement of their own living standard and preservation of the national identity. In our case, this means we first used the potentials utilizing our original comparative advantages. We are now turning to potentials that could be valued in terms of tourism, but start the race without an explicit comparative advantage.

We are therefore not static but dynamic, creative and proactive. Because traveling trends, needs, expectations and motives change. Permanently improving the quality of its facilities on the one hand and the transport infrastructure on the other hand, Croatia still tries to offer satisfaction and experiences even for the most demanding ones. This is confirmed by what have become traditional arrivals of royal and princely families, musicians, painters and members of powerful business dynasties on the Adriatic coast in summer months.

Croatia is also a great natural and historical stage for many unique festivals, exhibitions, concerts and events such as the Dubrovnik Summer Games, Split Summer, Rab Fjera, Pula and Motovun Film Festivals, or the Špancirfest in Varaždin.

By car


To enter Croatia, a driver’s licence, an automobile registration card and vehicle insurance documents are required. An international driving licence is required for the use of rent-a-car services. The permit is issued by the parent motor-club.

The driver of a motor vehicle registered abroad entering the territory of the Republic of Croatia must have a valid International Motor Third Party Liability Insurance document valid on the territory of the European Union, or some other evidence of the existence of such insurance. International insurance documents and evidences are considered to be either an official licence plate of a vehicle normally stationed on the territory of a country whose national insurance bureau is a signatory of the Multilateral agreement or a valid Green Card issued for a vehicle which originates from a country whose national insurance bureau is not a signatory of the Multilateral agreement and other documents and evidences whose validity is recognised by the Croatian insurance Bureau.
