Safety and insurance
Safety in Croatia
When it comes to safety in Croatia you can walk without particular attention almost everywhere but when it gets dark better don’t experiment in big city suburbs – city centers are safe but you shouldn’t explore the whole area by night.
Of course, as everywhere else, you should take care of your belongings, especially on the beach where some of your stuff (handy, wallet) could disappear while you take a swim.
If you use public transport –it’s also safe all around the country.
The mines from war in 90’s are no longer any threat to citizens or visitors (and they never were on the coast, only in some parts of inland).
Generally, you can be very relaxed on your holidays in Croatia.

Medical help in Croatia
If you are an EU-citizen then your European Medical Insurance Card (EHIC) covers your BASIC and EMERGENCY medical needs.
This FREE card gives you access to medical help in Croatia and any other of the 28 EU countries, state-provided healthcare during your temporary stay, under the same conditions and at the same cost (free in some countries) as people insured in that country. Cards are issued by your national health insurance provider.
Find more info on European Medical Insurance Card and what kind of medical help you’ll get in Croatia if necessary.
All Non-EU citizens please check with your embassies what level of medical care is covered in Croatia for your country.
IMPORTANT – EHIC is not an alternative to travel insurance and it doesn’t cover any private healthcare costs or other costs such as a return flight to your home.
