+Gabriel Traveler Actully in center of Croatia when u move away from seaside prices of food is much cheaper
Gabriel Traveler (11 months ago)
Don't worry, I try lots of local food when I travel. I don't always eat hamburgers and pizza just because I'm from the U.S. But yes, shopping at bakeries, grocery stores, etc. is always a great way to save some money.
SkepticalArachnist (1 year ago)
The prices featured in this video are acutally pretty high for Croatian standards. If you are backpacking I would recommend getting food in a bakery, because they are much cheaper, while the variety of food and overall quality are usually higher. Don't be affraid to try something local just because you're used to hamburgers, cheesburgers and pizzas. Also, you should ask locals (young people, high school - college age, because they usually all speak english) for directions to stores, clubs, etc.

7 kunas to US $ 1. I never knew that..I thought they r part of Euro.

Smaller villages or towns on the Dalmatian coast tend to be cheaper than the big resort towns. The accommodation should be cheaper there and then you can go for day trips to the bigger places. Renting a private apartment instead of a hotel room can cut costs too. Also, bottled water in a Croatian supermarket should cost about 5 Kuna to 6 Kuna so that`s about 0.70 Euro cents for a small bottle of water.

You’re comparing apples to oranges in my personal opinion, although biased, Budapest,Hungary or the thousands of kilometres of Croatian coast?
Gabriel Traveler (2 months ago)
I'm not sure what you're referring to. If you mention the time in your comment (for example 5:00) then it will indicate what point in the video you're referencing.

You actually visited the most expensive city of Croatia along with Dubrovnik.. I have visited the entire coastline and theres a lot of cheaper places in Dalmatia in terms of accomodation and food. Greetings from Rovinj :)
Marko golijanin (2 months ago)
I mean dude you don't buy water in Croatia. Tap water is clean everywhere...You just bring your own bottle and if you didnt fill it up at home you just go in the nearest caffe bar or a restauraunt and ask for a refill. Everyone will do it.

As a tourist its insane how quickly you burn through your money. You feel like a walking ATM. And given the unemployment rate and the average income of Croatians it is impossible for ordinary people without real estate property to live there.
James Ebola (3 months ago)
Tipping is not expected here. As for the water, carry sturdy water bottle or two and fill them from public water fountains which exist in every city. Buy your food in grocery store or open air farmers market. Some will barter with you. Prices are directly proportionate to one's proximity to the sea. Islands are the most expensive. Just imagine how the locals feel...they pay the same prices yet they make maybe about 1/5 th of typical western pay check. If you want to travel cheaply see Serbia, Rumania, Bulgaria or Albania.

I met an American girl who was also back packing through what was then Yugoslavia. I tried my English on her and apparently made good impression. We've been married for 45 years now.

Don’t buy water in Croatia, lol. A dead tourist giveaway and an unnecessary expense. Tap water is excellent in 90% of the country. Trust me, I’m a Croatian who lives in California now and the first thing I will do when I get home is drink a nice, tall glass straight from my parents’ kitchen. Enjoy your travels!

Never buy drinks in Known Holiday places in middle of a Towns or City’s! Markets and Little bit out of town or central arias of towns you will fined more Local places and cheaper prices!
Domagoj Beno (4 months ago)
Well do no bout Others but BiH is about same as Croatia in prices and places where you go to eat! Look for local restaurants not just around Known Tourist Arias! Albania and others I don’t know but Bosnia and Herzegovina I do!

You wisited the most expensive city in Croatia, some argue that it has similar prices to Venice, it is a city for luxury guests I don't recommend it if you are on budget, but luckily Croatia is filled whit small cityes around the couste that are similar to Rovinj and are much cheaper

for foreigners it may not be that expensive, but for local people yes. our standard is horrible. in Zagreb you'll pay for a pizza 8-10 kn, and at the seaside +15 kn

Well you have been in season and at beautiful place that is popular, I agree that is little ekspensive but in every place with sea in Croatia is ekspensive at season, you can't compare Bosnia and Rovinj in Croatia, that is not the same. But I am happy that you people from all places around the world see the beauty of our country that some our people don't see and don't respect.

Silvio hundrić (8 months ago)
I rarely make some comments on You tube , but I was trigger with this video . Rovinj is one of the top locations, and you are in a Nice, France type of place . The place is not expensive in a price/quality ratio, but it's not a real destination for backpackers on a budget . And its silly to make any parallel with eastern Europe or Albania for that matter. And one tip for a tip , if you are on budget, don't tip 10 kunas, save it for another slice of pizza. ( no big deal in Croatia )

While Croatia is a beautiful Country, our economy is messed up. They dont pay us as much in other countrys so yea. People ussualy say that our food is cheap but to us its very expensive.
Drazen Graves (1 year ago)
These prices for someone who lives in the continental part of Croatia (eastern part) are kinda crazy. Looking at that fast food place,these prices are almost more than double what you pay here.

Introspect (1 year ago)
Very expensive, overpriced Dubrovnik, Mlini and Cavtat. You need to be told this fact clearly, so you understand that it's going to cost you a lot of money, especially with restaurant prices. Unbelievably expensive - very distasteful for me to pay London restaurant prices in a country where the average salary is around half of that of the UK. And not even one single sandy beach. Nothing special at all unfortunately. If you must visit Dubrovnik, I suggest 3 to 4 days maximum. Beaches are all stoney, not visibly maintained, very few or no facilities, especially sunbeds & parasols - Why? Croatia is not new to tourism! And when you do find a sunbed, they charge the equivalent of €12, for 2 beds plus parasol, whereas every other beach country in Europe has a generally standard charge of €7.50 for 2 sunbeds and a parasol. Never again. For beaches in Europe, go to the Greek Islands, the Balearics, the Canaries or Cyprus. Much cheaper food also, which is high quality.

Cool to see all these foreingers saying they love to come to Croatian coast and to relax on the beaches. I live in Croatia and i personally hate going to the beaches of Dalmatia. Better of on the asphalt of my home, Zagreb!
