Croatia: Gay and Lesbian
The New Riviera
Since independence (in 1990) and the elections in 2000, the attitude towards homosexuality in Croatia has much has changed. The situation for gays and lesbians in Croatia has been improving rapidly. In recent years Croatia has become a popular holiday destination for gays and lesbians around the world. People are attracted to the hospitality of the small but welcoming and friendly gay community. Croatia’s Dalmatian coast has recently been included among the 10 best new gay & lesbian holiday destinations. Despite of that fact, discrimination against homosexuality does still exist in this predominantly catholic country.
