Croatia has been a member of the Eurozone and the Schengen area for almost two weeks now. Czechs aren’t the only ones who expect the news to speed up their journey to their favorite vacation spot. Not only the lack of checks at border crossings from Slovenia and Hungary was commented on by the Czech Ambassador to Zagreb, Milan Hovorka, in the Epicentrum program.
“Border controls have been lifted in more than seventy places. In many cases, they were the reason for the long wait. This has been filmed since January 1, ”Govorka confirms. However, he notes that people should still plan their departure date well.
“Even if our citizens do not have to translate either passports or ID cards, the demand for this transport infrastructure is so high during the summer months that it cannot always fully serve a large number of vehicles.” warns.
“In addition, there are situations when there are toll booths immediately after crossing the border. And this, of course, is another factor that can slow down the path to the fil distillation. Croatia is trying to speed up the transition to electronic tolls. Initially, it was supposed to be in 2025, and now it could be a year earlier,” the ambassador suggests.
In case anyone is planning to travel to Croatia before the start of the season, Hovorka reminds that air traffic controls are still in place as they were before the start of the new year: “Border control on the roads has been removed. However, as for the airport, it will not be canceled there until March 26.”
