Does it make sense to visit Croatia in winter?

by purple life »

I've always wanted to see the Dalmatian Coast and Sarajevo, but am worried that much would be closed in the off-season. Or would it be a good time to go to avoid the crowds?

This reply is probably too late for your trip but good for future reference.

July, August and most of Septmber are the busiest months, the islands are quiet before May and after September. Larger towns are open for business all year and public transport is good too.

Hi,
In winter I recommend rent a car or you can use ask some travel company for an itinerary with private car/minivan with english speaking driver/guide. By us such trips are not expensive and you can see a lot of nice places without loosing precious time in searching for a place to see, where to spend a night or what to do, and be informed about Croatian people, culture, history etc

Hi all,

if relevant for people looking if is worthwile to travel to Croatia in winter, I say "Yes, it is". In winter period most of the accomodation prices are 30-40% lower than during summer season. However there is one category of accomodation, that is up to 60-70% cheaper than in high season. It is by staying and renting villas with pool in Croatia - and yes - some of villas have heated swiming pool so you can enjoy even more.

There are more than 5000 villas in Croatia and the estimate is that it is growing by 500 new villas for rent per year.

First of all would recommend you to read more about Croatia a Croatia official page and pick the one of the three regions in Croatia: Istria, Dalmatia (that was asked in originall question) or Dubrovnik. if you already know which destination you want to visit. Than I would recommend you to go for local agencies that often offer handpicked villas with pool and are quite close to the host - which for sure will improve your experience.

1) for Dubrovnik area: would recommend Dubrovnik villas specialized online travel agency. For more on Dubrovnik specific visit local tourism board TURISTI?KA ZAJEDNICA GRADA DUBROVNIKA

2) for Dalmatia area: would recommend Dalmatian vilas specialized travel agency for Dalmatia. More info on Dalmatia on regional travel board website The official site of the Tourist Board Split-Dalmatia County

3) for Istria area: would recommend Istria villas with pool - specilized agency for renting villas with pool in Istria .More info about Istria on local travel board pages All about Istria
On top many events happend during winter - e.g. we had recently olive oil exibition, advent is in all coastal cities beautifull and there is more than enough of local fresh fish (not the case during summer).

...and weather:

now is December - outside is 15C. So after bath in pool - you will not freeze.

Hope this helps all future travelers to Croatia during winter.

Hi, from April to October is better. If you prefer the colder and cheaper period of the year, April May and September you can choose. June, Jully, and Augst is the time when is hot and to meet travelers. South Croatia, Dalmatia is way warmer than north in general. Route suggest by Krilo.hr: Split - Hvar - Korcula, and Dubrovnik.
