    I don’t know officially, but my experience in Croatia was that the main push against wild camping involved the tourism industry, and as such, sleeping in your car is likely to be treated the same.

    Croatians live off of tourism, especially on the coast. So, be prepared to find big “No Camping” signs all over the place. However, just because the laws state otherwise, it is still perfectly possible to find remote places in Croatia for wild camping – just be discreet!

    Yes, it is forbidden; as long the police do not see you – you are good 🙂

    Just say you were falling asleep when driving and had to stop. When in the city, this excuse works even better: “I was partying (spending money) last night to much and decided not to drive drunk to my next stop.” You can’t make a camp and slept for 10 days at the same spot (city), but u should be fine the first couple of times u get awaken by the police.

    I’ve been traveling for 10 years by VAN in West, North, South, Central Europe and I can tell you that wild camping in Croatia is not appreciated. On the coastline, they said I was destroying their economy.

      I am currently in Croatia, with car and tent. I am paying campings but I’d love to wild camp. Actually, I’ve seen a few cool places while traveling, but I decided to respect the law instead haha could you tell me if you slept in a bivouac (just the sleeping bag) or if you put the tent?

    Nice country, but I wouldn’t go back. Too expensive for tourists. Prices are like in North-Europe, but their average monthly net salary is only +/- 745 euros). Locals are suffering and leaving their country.

    I slept in a van there for a month in so many different spots and never had an issue, but we had curtains and tinted windows, so the police never really saw us inside. Although they did stop and shine lights at us, in at least 2 occasions. But on my experience, the only thing they did was calling the closest camping and sending some dude on a motorbike to try and charge you for a night. So we did just drive away.

    If you stay away from turistic spots you will not have trouble. We used to sleep always a bit to the north, between mountains or so, so the temperature would not be too bad. And we normally encountered amazing people who told us where it would be safe to sleep. I loved that country and its people so much. Have fun!!

    Last summer I went on a road trip with my girlfriend in Croatia, and Balkan. We slept in our car and had no problem. Download the app “park 4 night” on your smartphone, many good pieces of advice and nice place you can find using that.

    I asked the workers to put my tent behind the petrol station and it was fine, nobody bothers me.

    I also used to sleep in my car in Croatia, I would find a nice spot during the day, usually, somewhere away from any city or main road, I would spend the day at the beach, and after that, I would go back to my secret sleeping place.

    I wouldn’t advise sleeping in your car, you’ll be cooked alive by the morning… There are plenty of nice camping spots where no one will mind. I’m a Croat and I’m camping almost every weekend, winter and summer 🙂

    I used to live in Croatia for a few years (and of course I went to Ljubljana tons of time for the lake, mountain and cave:)). If you are going to do that in Summer, everywhere will be warm enough outside. and you will find tons of places to sleep outside with no one around. Don’t bother to sleep in the car 🙂
    Even in Zagreb after 20min driver, you will be outside of the city, which does not have much police around.

    I dunno but this world keeps going sick. Sleeping, eating, and weather are the basic stuff that we need to survive and it should be free for everyone. So if I want to drink from a stream, fishing small quantities to survive/collecting mushrooms and sleep under the stars is our right.
