- The official currency of Croatia is Kuna. Additionally, tourists can use Euro in some places but it is very rare. If tourists want to change money to Kuna, they should go to the banks. Tourists can also use credit cards of European countries and other credit cards at the ATMs across the country. When buying goods over 500 Kuna, tourists will be exempted from VAT, this is a pretty good incentive for tourists traveling to Croatia.

- If tourists want to travel to Croatia via the highway, they need to have one valid driving license, one car with license and insurance card. Yacht service and quality buses go to the Plitvice National Lakes are also quite popular.

- The north of Croatia has the temperate climate, while the midland and mountainous region is cold. Fall and spring have a cool breeze blowing lightly along the coast, in the winter, it is quite cold and snowfall in northern and central areas.

- Like some other country, people in Croatia have concepts that chamomile is for the dead, especially the white daisies Therefore tourists are advised that if you want to give flowers to someone in Croatia, they should not choose this type of flower. Besides, when giving flowers, bouquet must be odd and even numbers should be avoided. Because people in this country think that even numbers will bring bad luck to them and maybe they will give you backwards if bouquet is even.

- Tourists can go on foot or rent bicycle to visit around the central cities of Croatia. Bus is also a convenient vehicle if tourists go the further points, or the plane is the most convenient.
