We know that many travellers do also have specific dietary requirements, which are sometimes not that easy to handle when travelling…and unfortunately, Croatia probably won’t prove to be any kind of exception! However, we’ve compiled a page to give you some pointers on how best to deal with any dietary requirements you may have in Croatia, including listing some vegetarian restaurants, and some phrases that you may find useful.
