Passport/Visa

Croatia can be visited visa-free for 90 days up to 180 days from most of the EU countries, UK, New Zealand, US, Australia and Canada. International (non Schengen-zone) citizens need to hold a valid passport for at least 3 more months after the end of their intended trip in order to enter Croatia. Travellers from Schengen Zone don't need a passport but must hold a valid ID card. Note that Croatia is not yet part of the Schengen zone, but allows visitors holding Schengen visas to enter the country without additional visa requirements. If you are unsure whether you need to apply or not for a visa prior to your entry, we recommend checking the Croatian Ministry of Foreign Affairs website for more information: http://www.mvep.hr/en/consular-information/visas/visa-requirements-overview/

Best Time to Visit

Best Time to Visit

When in Rijeka, the crystal-clear waters of Adriatic Sea, fascinating history, delicious seafood and wine will surround you. The best time to visit Rijeka is from May to early June and from September to October, when the crowds of tourists haven't yet invaded every corner of the city. In these months, you can still enjoy sunbathing or any outdoor activity without spending too much. The peak season is from July to August, meaning that room rates are often higher. Winter, although too cold, is known for being also one of the busiest seasons in Rijeka. Many events take place during this season, like the annual Rijeka Carnival – the biggest carnival held in Croatia.

Pharmacy

Pharmacy

In Croatia pharmacists sell over-the-counter medicines for minor illnesses, but for more serious problems you will need a prescription that can be issued by a private doctor or filled by the so-called "Ljekarna", the equivalent of a pharmacy and easily recognisable by the lit green "+" sign. In most cases pharmacists do accept the prescription even if it is issued abroad. Some pharmacies in Rijeka are to be found in: - Pharmacy Rijeka Cambierieva ul. 11, Rijeka +385 51 215 281 Monday – Friday: 7am – 8pm, Saturday: 7am – 3pm, Sunday: closed - Ljekarna Korzo Korzo 22, Rijeka +385 51 211 036 Monday – Friday: 7am – 8pm, Saturday: 7am – 3pm, Sunday: closed
