Practical information

Croatia is a member of the EU since the 1th of July 2013 and therefore there are no customs controls only police control for persons passing the Croatian border. So you will need to show your valid passport or identification card when from an EU country, if you’re from outside an EU country you have to show a valid passport. During summer months there can be long traffic lines for the border towards Istria and Zagreb especially on Fridays and Saturdays.
