FAQ & More
July and August are considered Croatia’s ‘season’. It is summer during that time, and tourism is in full swing. The weather is hot, the sea is blue, and the coast is at its best. The only drawback is that it is the peak of tourist season. Everything is busy in Croatia this during the summer and the crowds can be overwhelming. The weather in Croatia varies from the north to the coast. The north has a Continental climate with temperatures averaging around 77 degrees Fahrenheit in August. The coastal areas have a Mediterranean climate and the temperature can reach as high as 100 degrees Fahrenheit. The weather in May, June, September, and October will be milder, but some businesses may be closed.
You will need a passport that is valid for 6 months past the end of your trip, but a visa is not required for tourists who are on trips of less than 90 days.

You can either exchange currency before you travel or get it from an ATM when you arrive, again watch for the exchange rate.
