Medical Offices

There are hospitals and clinics in all larger cities, while first aid clinics and pharmacies can be found in small towns as well.

Foreign tourists who are covered by health insurance in countries with which Croatia has signed a Social Security Agreement do not pay for emergency medical care during a private stay in the Republic of Croatia if they have a contract providing confirmation of their right to health care. Health care (including transport) is used for emergency cases in the manner and according to the regulations valid for Croatian citizens covered by social security, with identical participation in health care costs.

Persons coming from countries with which there is no health care contract or agreement bear all the costs themselves, so it is advisable to opt for travel insurance with a private insurance company.
