As of July 26, Croatia has recorded 77 new cases of coronavirus infection in the last 24 hours. Although that number is quite big, it's not overly worrying for the tourist season, since most cases originate from the eastern part of Croatia which is not a famous tourist spot. Bigger tourist destinations like Dubrovnik, Split, and Hvar have single-digit number of cases daily, making those places safe for vacation.

Croatia travel update

There are almost 100 000 tourists currently enjoying their vacation in Split, the town known for its beaches, nightlife, and Diocletian's Palace. This is half the number than last year, which is no wonder, given the fact that airlines with some destinations have not yet been established. Other destinations, such as Hvar, Dubrovnik and Zadar, saw a 50% drop in visitors as well.

All the bars, restaurants, and other tourist facilities are fully operational in Croatia. Masks are required in public transportation and shops.

Just as expected, there is no nightlife and party as we are used to, since the dance floor in clubs is not allowed to be used for dancing. However, most bars and nightclubs have opened its doors, featuring more intimate atmosphere and reduced number of people.

As far as the border regime is concerned, all citizens of the European Union and the UK are free to enter Croatia as before the pandemic. It is recommended to fill in the form called Enter Croatia before getting to the border, to avoid waiting time and manually filling the form on the border.

In a case you get coronavirus in Croatia (which is very rare case), you will be required to self isolate, or go back to your homeland. In a case of severe symptoms, Croatian Health Care system will take care of you. Croatia has a fairly good health care system and doctors ready to handle the pandemic.

In the end, if you are considering a vacation in Croatia, I recommend going for it. More than a million visitors have been in Croatia in July 2020, and most of them have positive experiences related to their vacation.
