Just like January, February is usually a month of low tourist activity in Croatia. With its variable and unpredictable weather, it's a favorite time of the year for those who look for a more intimate experience of travel, either as individuals or couples.

I took a walk around Split on February 1, 2022, to check the atmosphere of the town, and if there were any visitors.

Split tourism in February 2022

Just as expected, there are only a few tourists in the old town in early February. Most of them are enjoying the more individual experience of travel. There are no crowds or any unnecessary noise. The most interesting place in the town, Split Peristyle square, is half-empty, allowing visitors to immerse more deeply into its mystery, and to feel authentic ancient Roman culture.

February is known as the month of romance. Split will offer a nice experience for married couples; either young or old. Coffee bars and restaurants on Split Riva and piazza square provide just the perfect atmosphere with the candles and sea view.

Croatia is still being affected by the peak of the fifth wave of the coronavirus pandemic. Large public gatherings are limited, and will probably remain that way till early March. Nightclubs are required to close at midnight. That's why most of them are temporarily closed or work only as bars.

If you are arriving from EU countries, you may be required to show a digital COVID certificate on the border, which is old no longer than 9 months. Otherwise, you are required to show a negative PCR test.

Coffee bars, restaurants, and all the other facilities are fully operational. You are not required to show the certificate when entering those places unless you are visiting facilities managed by the state such as libraries, museums, etc.

Just like Denmark, and the UK, we hope that life should be fully back to normal in Croatia in a few weeks as well.
