    Heading to Croatia for a few days this October. Probably Zagreb and somewhere along the coast. Does anyone have tips for an Anerican traveler? Areas to avoid? How is the gay life there?

    Anyone actually live there? Thoughts?

    Thanks in advance.

    We are planning on making it part of a trip next May/June, so will be able to give me advice! lol
    I will look up our brochures and see what I can come up with for you. The place looks amazing, with lots of islands and beautiful coast!

    Hey hope you have a great time in advance!!!

    I haven't been personally, but would really like to go!

    My aunt went there a couple years back for about 3 weeks and loved it. She was mostly on the coast in 4 cities (Dubrovnik, Split, Zadar, and Rijeka) I can't remember which one, but she mentioned you can take a ferry ride to Venice.

    From what I have read Dubrovnik or Split would be the most gay friendly, but hopefully someone from personal experience can better answer that.

    croatia is lovely but very expensive, montenegro (just next to croatia) is even more beautiful and will have far less tourists.
    everywhere in croatia (well everywhere along the coast, split, dubrovnik, zadar etc will be thronged with tourists, for good reason it is beautiful) but in general the beaches were a big let down. you should def make it to the islands, havar is lovely.

    In Ottawa this past summer we stopped at the Croatia embassy and got piles of brochures and even a driving map. Check out www.croatia.hr and you should be able to order some in time. Definitely Split seems a great beach destination, will let you know if I come across any gay info! icon_smile.gif
