Croatians definitely have their fair share of rules, habits, beliefs and superstitions, and I’m here to outline the ones I’ve noticed since first setting foot on Croatian soil back in 2007. Some of these I also now do, while others I remain a total outcast for in Croatia.
Don’t sit on concrete, cover your kidneys, eat with a spoon, use lard and liquor if you’re sick, blame the wind if you’re grumpy, and buy olive oil in recycled Coke bottles, are just a few. Read on to discover more rules, habits and superstitions Croatians take very seriously.
Croatia is home to many wild animals (including snakes, bears, sharks and scorpions to name a few). Here I have put together a helpful guide showing which animals are dangerous, where they can be found in Croatia, what you should look out for, and what to do if you get bitten.
Looking for nudist or naturist beaches in Croatia where you can swim, sunbathe and enjoy the day freely? Here is a list of the top 15 spots for naturism along the Adriatic Sea, each with a map so you can see precisely where they are (sometimes they’re hard to find!).
There are actually over 100 nudist beaches throughout the country, so there are plenty to choose from, but here’s a narrowed-down list to give you an idea, and help you sort out some of the best.
Just a quick note to mention that naturist beaches in Croatia are labelled with FKK, which is short for Freikorperkultur (which is a German naturist movement that translates to ‘free body culture’). Keep your eye out for those three letters, then you can strip down to your birthday suit and enjoy the clean and clear waters of the Adriatic!

Croatians really know how to celebrate, especially when it comes to two people joining their lives in marriage. Their weddings are quite unique and I think they do it better than almost anyone!
I know because I’ve been to many Croatian weddings, I’ve had my own Croatian wedding, and the 3 day celebration, the traditions, the fake brides, the flagman, the horns, the dancing (and eating) until the sun comes up, really make the whole weekend-long festivities, incredible!

Raising bilingual children has been a struggle: one I didn’t expect. I thought that just because I’m a native English speaker, my kids would naturally and effortlessly pick up the language, no matter what country we live in, and no matter what language surrounds us.
I always thought English would be their first language. I thought their accents would sound like mine. I thought it would be effortless. I was wrong.
