Croatia isn’t usually known for its stunning nightlife, but it definitely should be. The bigger tourist cities of Zagreb, Opatija, Umag, Porec, Rovinij, Pula, and Dubrovnik are laced with high-rated hotels, most of which have flashy, bright casinos and entertaining nightclubs. The large cities in Croatia are also fortified with disco clubs for those who love to dance.
The summertime is when Croatia really shines. The chief tourist centres feature parties in the open where you can dance under a clear, bright night sky, gazing at the stars while moving to the beat of the dance.
Included in the summertime outdoor nightlife activities are fishermen’s parties, which are very popular and folk dance shows, “klapa,” which are concerts by synchronized harmonic groups.
Summertime is the peak of the nightlife in Croatia. The warmer temperatures allow for the night to continue until the break of daylight.
