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.
