Most cases are reported near the Serbian border and in Zagreb. 

Will I have to quarantine in Croatia or when returning to the UK?

Arrivals from Britain are asked to fill out a form with details including whether you have ever had coronavirus or if you have been in contact with someone who has recovered from Covid-19 in the previous 14 days.

Travellers also have to provide proof of an accommodation booking or that they own a residence when crossing the border. 

Masks are now compulsory in public.
