Although the temperature starts to cool down in October, it can reach high 22 degrees in the day. Weather is ideal for sitting on the beaches throughout Dalmatia and soak up the Mediterranean sun. Also, the cooler weather allows you to explore the historical sights and natural surroundings without getting sunburn or heatstroke. We recommend bringing warmer clothes for the night.

Independence Day

Independence Day in Croatia is a national holiday taking place on the 8th of October. It's celebrating the decision of the Croatian Parliament to separate Croatia from Yugoslavia. It is a holiday that brings national pride and is a way to pay tribute to Croatia as an independent country. You will find celebrations all throughout Croatia, but the best can be found in Zadar, Croatia’s oldest city. Zadar played a huge role in the Croatian War of Independence and the patriotism is tangible on this historic day. Friendly locals celebrate this holiday and you will be able to sense a true feeling of pride when visiting this city.

Halloween & All Saints Day

Halloween isn't massively celebrated in Croatia. It has gained some popularity in more recent years within the clubs and bars. Split is famous for its nightlife and many nightclubs will put on costume competitions and special menus. Halloween is the day before All Saints Day, which is a public holiday in Croatia that takes place on the 1st of November. All Saints Day is when family and friends celebrate those that have passed away by visiting cemeteries and remembering fond memories of those they have lost. Families will clean the graves, leave flowers and then return home where they will celebrate with a feast.

Truffle Days in Istria
