The New Riviera
It's easy in practical terms to backpack in Croatia. Backpacking in Croatia is on the rise and although the rail system outside of the capital is fairly basic, there is an excellent coach system around the country, well organised, generally reliable and also very cost effective. It is possible to survive on around €27 (approx. 200 Kuna) a day in Croatia, if you stay in hostels or camps. It is more likely to find private accommodation though. To save oneself the hassle of finding accommodation while backpacking in Croatia it is a good idea to book in advance. In the high season locals who have rooms for rent will wait for tourists to arrive at bus stations and will try to offer their rooms. It is advisable to look at the accommodation before committing to it.
