"There is no reason to suppose the Croatian government will want to complicate access to the country to citizens of so-called safe states in the near future," Slovak Ambassador to Croatia Peter Susko told Sme.

Slovakia is also on the Croatian list of safe countries. Reciprocally, Slovakia considers Croatia to be safe.

It is key, however, to be responsible and observe hygienic rules, Susko noted.

"We recommend tourists to follow common sense and maintain the same safety measures like at home. That is, sufficient distance from other people on the beach, in restaurants, and other social contact, including popular boat trips," Susko said.
