IPTC INFO
CaptionSecurity The decision to travel is your responsibility. You are also responsible for your personal safety abroad. The purpose of this Travel Advice is to provide up-to-date information to enable you to make well-informed decisions. Landmines Landmines and unexploded ordnance remaining from the 1991-95 war are a serious risk along former front-line areas especially in eastern Slavonia Vukovar Osijek the counties of Sisak-Moslavina Zadar Lika-Senj Brodsko-Posavska and Karlovac areas around the Plitvice Lake National Park region the border areas with Serbia and Montenegro and south of Dubrovnik near Konavle. Demining operations are expected to continue until at least 2019. You should stay on paved roads and avoid ditches open fields and the shoulders of roads not clearly marked as being free of mines. Seek local advice on the presence of unexploded landmines. For additional information visit the Croatian Mine Action Center's website CROMAC or contact them by e-mail. Crime Petty crime such as pickpocketing and document theft occurs especially in busy tourist areas and along the Adriatic coast. Ethnic tensions exist but rarely become violent. Be vigilant if you attend soccer matches. The crowd occasionally becomes rowdy and violent. Road travel Travel by road can be hazardous. Drivers generally have little regard for traffic regulations and do not follow safe driving practices. Many roads are narrow and poorly maintained. In particular roads along the Adriatic coast are narrow congested very slippery when wet and many lack guard rails. Expect heavy traffic congestion on major routes on weekends and in the main cities during rush hour. Natural Disasters & Climate Croatia is located in an active seismic zone. Heavy rains are frequent in the summer sometimes resulting in localized flooding. Severe flooding was reported in the eastern Slavonia region of Croatia in June 2013. Exercise caution monitor local media and follow the advice of local authorities.
