Yesterday, the worst was at the border crossing Rupa and Bregana. The photos are like it’s August. Convoys of vehicles were waiting to enter Croatia. The border police have a lot to do with the new rules and the whole process takes much longer. More precisely, it is necessary to check for everyone why they come to Croatia.

    I wish I could say I love Croatia, but I’ve never been there! Tried, but corona got in the way. 🙁 Your readers should be aware of what happened to my group. We put down a substantial deposit on a house in Croatia for early June (Amazing Beachfront Villa with 5 Bedrooms, VRBO #2590124ha), and even after Croatia closed its borders to foreigners because of the coronavirus pandemic, the owner and management company (My Waycation — refused to refund the deposit or allow us to move our dates. To its credit, VRBO refunded their fees for the rental. But incidents like this won’t help Croatia’s tourism rebound.
