Many things are wrong with Croatia, I admit. Mostly economy and politics. But many things are just great and first and the most important when I travel is SAFETY! Can a woman travel alone in Croatia? YES YES and YES.
There were few incidents in the past but few is nothing compared to the rest of the world. You will definitely NOT get shot on the streets of Croatia, or stabbed. Not during the day, not during the night. Women DON’T have to be afraid to get raped even if they walk alone in the middle of the night. You should be always careful but you will not be afraid. To me, especially as a woman, that’s very important.
There are crazy people everywhere but Croatia is very safe country. You can even see kids play on the streets at 10pm as normal. Compared to other destinations where crime and women rights are still a problem, you are safe here. 🙂
