Geography, Climate and Time Zone
Croatia is situated between middle and south central Europe. It has a diverse topography which is composed of hills, dense mountains and rough coastlines located at different parts of the country. The hottest season occurs from July to August; with temperatures ranging from 25 degrees C to 35 degrees C. The best time to swim and sunbathe is during the months of April, May, June, September and October, as the sun is just high enough and the heat not so intense. Moreover, Croatia falls in the CET and CEST Time zone, with GMT + 2 hours for summer and GMT + 1 hour for the rest of the year.
Visa and Passport
You must prepare a couple of documents if you plan to go visit Croatia. Travelers are required to present their visa and passport, along a proof that they have sufficient funds for the duration of their stay. A valid return ticket is necessary. However, British, Australian, Canadian, American and European visitors need not present a visa anymore.
Visitors are allowed to bring only a limited number of duty-free items. You can carry foreign currency, but will have to put the amount in writing if it’s anything more than $7,400. Visitors are also allowed to carry out Croatian products but will have to abide to the set limit of $800 worth of goods. Rates will be charged for packages exceeding the said amount.
The official currency of Croatia is the Kuna. A Croatian Kuna is currently equal to $0.1839USD and this varies every day, so it is better to check before you make your plans. You can change you money at the banks and at the money changers at the airport. You can also use your credit card in restaurants, if ever you do not carry enough cash with you.
If you are planning to explore outside city areas, you can take one of the ferries to cross over to the other islands. Just keep in mind their schedules as the ferries run on schedule. There are also buses and trains that travel to other towns. You may choose to hire a car and drive on your own.
