Travelling with a disability in Croatia

Croatia is a wonderful country but it is slightly more difficult to access with a disability.

Some advice for getting around Croatia.

In fact it is not the most well-adapted country for people with physical disabilities, especially for wheelchair users.

Many towns have uneven paving stones and getting around in a wheelchair can be challenging. Narrow streets and uneven pavements are just some of the things that make access difficult. It is the same thing if you want to visit the natural wonders: the rocky creeks and stony paths of the natural parks preserve nature but make any access, apart from walking, difficult.

However, more and more inroads are being made. Croatia has made great efforts during the last years to meet the European standards and certain establishments now provide especially adapted structures to welcome disabled clients.

Information is available at the tourist information centre where you will find a list of establishments and be directed to places with disabled access.

It is the same thing for certain activities which are possible with the use of the specialised equipment. Similarly, certain areas to access the sea are equipped with ramps to allow disabled people to bathe.
