Coronavirus has been changing our life in the past 3 months in many ways. One of the most significant changes that has been more or less present in every country is the restriction of movement.
Lately, the situation is normalizing. EU is opening borders between its member states. The question which many people ask themselves is whether they should travel abroad for a vacation this year, or stay at home. I will give a few thoughts about whether to travel or not to Croatia this year.

Advantages of vacation in Croatia in 2020

Although no one likes a coronavirus crisis, it will bring some benefits to visitors of Croatia. The first benefit is the price. As I have already written about top destinations in Croatia in 2020, prices for accommodation, restaurants, and cultural sights will be significantly reduced. For example, if you want to take a tour around Dubrovnik walls, you will pay only 50 kunas per adult ticket in June 2020. Normal price is 200 kuna per adult.
It is clear to private apartment renters that if they want to attract guests, they have to lower the prices down. If you look a bit at online booking platforms, you’ll notice that they are already decreasing the price. Dubrovnik, Split, and Hvar Town have never been affordable as today.

Another advantage is a more intimate atmosphere of a visit. Normally, you would have thousands of visitors walking up and down on Stradun, the main Dubrovnik's road. These days it will be more comfortable. Same is for the beaches, sights, and all other places of visitors interest.

The next advantage is the Croatian health care system. Croatia has shown itself to be excellent in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic. The minimal number of coronavirus infections and a decent health care system are a guarantee of quality health care for every tourist who finds himself Croatia.

If you wanted to have a great party time in Croatia, participating in crowded events like Ultra Europe Festival, unfortunately, this year is not your time. Social distancing restrictions will be taking effect for the next few months, or even longer. Places like Novalja and its famous beach Zrce are preparing for a new way of operation, which excludes the possibility of partying as before.

If you want to have a vacation in Croatia, you need to fill an online form called Enter Croatia. There you will need to fill out accommodation objects you are going to stay in.

In conclusion, I would say this year is a great chance to experience Croatia. If crowded festivals and parties are not top of your priorities, you will have an opportunity to enjoy Croatia as never before. Come and see how beautiful it is.
