Bless St. Blasius
An entirely different sight awaits if you turn off onto one of the numerous side streets with their mar steps winding up the hillside. Washing flutters here, women call to children, and the smell of food wafts from open doorways. If you want to get really high then climb the Sergius hill that towers 1,351 feet above the sea. From here one gets the finest view on the Dalnu ian coast which also reveals thu. Dubrovnik has spread inland beyond the city walls with all the functional buildings needed bv a city.
Bless St. Blasius people whisper faced with this segregation of the utilitarian from the island and probably hope the patron saint will continue to protect Dubrovnik In the Middle Ages he is even supposed to have caught a cannonball fired by the enemy and effectively hurled it back. An exceptional city needs an exceptional patron saint.

The scenery
Whether traveling by land or sea along Croatia's shoreline, you are guaranteed a voyage of spectacular scenery and breathtaking views. The bare mountains running like a spine down the coast, the translucent Adriatic and the picturesque towns are surrounded by more than a thousand islands anchored offshore. The fact that most of these islands are uninhabited make them the ideal destination for those who want to get away from the crowds. Some of the roads are not very good, but Croatia is rapidly improving its road infrastructure. Croatia is integrated into the European road marking system. European roads have the mark "E" and highway roads "M". The most picturesque route in Croatia is considered to be the Adriatic highway (Jadranska magistrala) which connects Rijeka and Dubrovnik.

Customs
Custom duties are not paid on personal objects. Professional and technical equipment of sustainable value should be reported upon entering Croatia. Foreign currency can be imported and exported freely.

Documents and regulations
There are several documents travelers need to have available on their trips across Croatia: a valid passport, a valid International driving license, the vehicle registration card and insurance. Please note that valid insurance is obligatory. The wearing of seat belts is also required, both in the cities as well as driving through the countryside. When entering Croatia, all damage on the vehicle must be reported at the border office. Once in Croatia, all tourists are required to register upon arrival at their destination. If you are staying in a hotel, private accommodation or camp this will generally be done automatically for you. Tourists may remain in Croatia for up to three months on their tourist visas.
 

Visa regulation
All citizens of the countries for which entry visas are requested according to Visa Regulations of the Republic of Croatia, must as a rule, obtain the visas abroad prior to the entry into the Republic of Croatia by applying to the related Embassy or Consular Office of the Republic of Croatia. There is a possibility of issuing entry visas through a special procedure if requested by a legal entity or an individual in the Republic of Croatia by applying for visas to the relevant authorities in the Republic of Croatia (Police) for citizens of countries in which Republic of Croatia has no embassy or consular office.

Dubrovnik - Croatia

Most visitors to Croatia are usually from the neighbouring countries of Austria, Slovenia, Italy, Germany and so on, so they usually travel by car. From northern Europe, the easiest way to get to Croatia would be to drive to Munich and then enter Austria, down to Graz, cross into Slovenia, and then head for Croatia which is signposted as soon as you leave Maribor.

Money
The Croatian currency is the Kuna, which is divided into 100 lipas. (The word "Kuna" means marten, a weasel-like animal, whose fur Croats used for payment many centuries ago. The lipa is a lime tree, but we don't know the connection here!) The Kuna is overvalued but is nevertheless a stable currency. The current exchange rate between the kuna and various world currencies can be found at the Croatian National Bank.
Health
The health service is of a good standard. You have to pay for seeing a doctor or being treated in a hospital. Certain countries, such as Britain, have reciprocal medical arrangements whereby, in principal, you should not have to pay for any emergency treatment. It is therefore useful to wave your passport first and mention this!
Dubrovnik - Croatia
Safety
It is quite safe to travel all over Croatia and mugging and thefts are not a problem. You can safely walk in any town at night, but use your common sense, as always. In some coastal resorts, as is common all over the Mediterranean, single women may be approached or wolf-whistled at. Say no firmly and you will not be bothered. In case of any problems, approach a policeman or even a soldier, who will assist you. Both the Croatian police and the army are well disciplined. If you have a language problem, approach a younger person (teenagers/students) as they all speak some English and will be eager to help.
