Croatia is among the four worst countries in the European Union in terms of the share of stubborn opponents of vaccination in the total population.

This follows from the results of a survey published by Eurobarometer. This is a field survey of the barometer of people's attitudes in the 27 countries of the European Union on the economy, the coronavirus epidemic and the Covid vaccination conducted in June and July this year.

Probably the most interesting results for Croatia are those on attitudes towards Covid vaccination. In the research, they asked respondents from 27 European countries when they would like to receive the Covid vaccine, i.e. whether they have already received it.

Looking at the European Union average, 69 percent of respondents said they would like to be vaccinated as soon as possible or that they have already received the vaccine. 9 percent of respondents said they would like to receive the vaccine this year, 11 percent said “later,” and 10 percent said “never”.

But the numbers for Croatia are much more on the side of being against getting vaccinated. In fact, Croatia is at the very bottom of the scale of interest in the Covid vaccine.

In as many as 22 European Union countries, more than half of respondents say they want to be vaccinated as soon as possible or have already been vaccinated, led by Malta, the Netherlands and Ireland (87 percent), Belgium (86 percent), Spain (85 percent) and Sweden. (84 percent) and Denmark (83 percent).

Unfortunately, Croatia is on the other side of the spectrum. Namely, about a quarter of the respondents from Bulgaria, Latvia, Slovenia and Croatia said that they never want to be vaccinated against Covid.

Among the four countries, Bulgaria is the worst (26 percent do not want to be vaccinated at all), followed by Latvia and Slovenia with 24 percent and Croatia with 22 percent, reports HINA.

 

On the occasion of the “Month of Croatian Tourism”, the Tourist Board of the City of Dubrovnik is organizing free tours of the city in Croatian and English for all visitors to Dubrovnik during the month of October.

These city tours will be organized every Saturday at 2:00 pm, in front of the Tourist Information Centre on Pile, with mandatory prior notice.

Due to epidemiological measures, the number of participants is limited, so if you are interested you’ll need to confirm no later than on Fridays until 5:00pm, either by e-mail: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or tel: +38520312011.

Despite the epidemiological measures, Dubrovnik will certainly provide a unique experience to all visitors this autumn.

 

This September was one of the four warmest globally since measurements began in 1979, the European Climate Change Service - Copernicus - announced on Thursday.

This was the second warmest September, after last year. Namely, the difference in the average temperature in September 2021, 2016 and 2019 is one tenth of a degree Celsius.

In some parts of Europe, record temperatures were recorded in September, while in Eastern Europe it was colder than average.

As a result, the average temperature in Europe was close to the average for the period 1991-2020.

Above-average temperatures for September were recorded in north-western Africa, as well as in central South America and parts of China.

Since 1979, Copernicus has been publishing monthly reports on air temperature, ice and water cycle, relying on data from satellites, ships, aircraft and meteorological stations around the world, as well as its own models.

The Civil Protection Headquarters of the Dubrovnik-Neretva County is informing the public about the new dates of public vaccination against COVID-19.

The vaccination point will be organized at the Student Dormitory on Wednesday, October 13, 2021 from 08:00am to midday.

Croatian citizens will be vaccinated between 08:00am and 11:00am, and foreign citizens will be vaccinated between 11:00am and midday.

The vaccines Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson and Moderna Biotech will be available.

 

Over the past seven days 8,875 new cases of Covid-19 have been recorded as the numbers remain high. Croatia is once again marked as red on the latest European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) released on Thursday.

Of the 8,875 new Covid-19 cases over the past week 6,977 of them were with people who hadn’t been vaccinated with any doses. This means that almost 79 percent of the new cases from last week were with people who were unvaccinated.

The Croatian Government commented on Twitter that “We don't have a better way to protect ourselves and once again we urge everyone not to hesitate because vaccination is the fastest way to return to the old life.”

 

The Croatian Health Minister, Vili Beros, said at a government session on Thursday that vaccination is being intensified among health workers, whose coverage is now 71 percent, with the largest increase among nurses

"Compared to the week before, the share of unvaccinated decreased by 2.4 percent, and the highest number of vaccinated is recorded among nurses and other health professionals, by 2.8 percent," said Beroš.

He praised the health institutions for the good organization and implementation of Covid-certificates in hospitals. So far, 11,567 employees have been tested, 41 have tested positive for Covid-19 and 36 have refused testing.

"We are not endangering anyone's rights, but quite the opposite. Our task is to provide conditions for the realization of the right of every patient to safe treatment," he said.

 

Online casino has been popular throughout the world for money years, but a new trend is in town and it’s changing the landscape as we know it. Known as a Pay N Play casino, these new brands are allowing users in certain countries to play games without even registering an account.

In this article, we look at what a Pay N Play casino is and why it’s taking over the industry in 2021. Keep reading to find out more.

What is a Pay N Play Casino?

A Pay N Play Casino is an online casino site like any other, but it has one big difference. There’s no need to create an account, you simply head to the site, make a deposit and play your favorite casino games. And don’t forget you can play in Euros at pay n play casinos

So, how is this possible? There are two payment methods that facilitate no-account casinos; Trustly and Zimpler. They verify you through your bank ID (in Finland and Sweden) and so you don’t need to add any additional information. The whole process takes just a few seconds and is now a favorite amongst casino fans.

Why are they so popular?

Using a Pay N Play Casino is much faster than traditional casinos. Instead of filling in lengthy registration forms and verifying your account and payment methods, one click of a button can unlock the entire platform. The convenience and time saved are two of the obvious advantages.

These casino brands, like Cadabrus, are also offering some of the biggest bonuses on the market as a way of attracting new players. This makes them stand out to players looking to get the most out of their money. As well as welcome bonuses for new registrations, they also have regular offers and loyalty rewards for those that stick around too.

What’s next for Pay N Play Casinos?

The main thing that we expect to see is older brands implementing the Pay And Play functionality. It’s something new, and so is often only seen with the newly launched casinos. The more established brands are working hard to compete and get up to speed.

There are also plans to implement instant payouts. Right now, the deposit process takes seconds and the funds are in your account just as fast. A payout can take a few days. However, there are some casinos that are working on withdrawals being just as fast as deposits. If done right, that could change the online casino world as we know it and will make Pay and Play casinos popular across the world.

Remember to gamble responsibly

As new and exciting as the instant deposits feature is, it’s equally as important to practice safe gambling. This means setting limits, keeping track of your spending, and making sure that online gaming remains fun.

If you have any concerns about gambling addiction, reach out to charities like Gamcare for help, and consider self-excluding altogether.

 

 

A casino bonus is one of the many reasons why players opt to head online instead of to a land-based casino. There are so many brands competing for the same pool of players, which means bigger bonuses and more attractive offers than ever before. But, with so much to choose from, what do you look for in an online casino bonus?

Our friends over at a casino bonus comparison site know a thing or two about how to find a good bonus. In this guide, they’re going to give you some tips to help. If you want to see a list of offers in one place, check it out. For now, here’s what to look for in an online casino bonus.

The True Value of a Bonus

You know how it is. An offer sometimes looks a lot better on the surface than it really is underneath. This is particularly true of online casinos which have become experts at creating great imagery and flashing lights to distract you from the details.

For example, if it is a 100% bonus offer - how much is it actually worth? What is the upper limit? The higher the percentage is, usually means the lower the limit. For example 100% up to £100 or 200% up to £30. Make sure that you’re completely clear on what you’re getting for your money, and what you have to do to claim it. This brings us on to our next point; terms and conditions.

Terms and Conditions

Terms and conditions can make or break a casino bonus. They are in place to protect the casino, and we get it, business is business. But there are some brands out there that make it incredibly difficult to even have a chance of winning with a bonus. How? Through wagering requirements. And don’t forget you can also get a casino bonus without registration.

Wagering is how many times you have to play through a bonus before you could withdraw any cash. For example, with a £100 bonus with 60x wagering, you would need to spin £6,000 in total before anything was yours. The lower the wagering, the better. The size of the bonus itself can influence the wagering requirements, but wagering anywhere below 35 times is relatively low. Anything above is high, and once you start reaching 60 times or above, it’s ridiculous.

Other things to look out for in casino bonus terms and conditions are maximum wins and excluded deposit methods. Be sure to always understand the rules before you spend a penny.

Can you actually win from a bonus?

Yes, you absolutely can win from a casino bonus. However, it all comes down to luck. As with all gambling, you need to get lucky to win. There’s nothing you can do to increase your chances or manipulate the system.

The best advice we could give is that you should treat the casino bonus as something fun. Not something to make cash from or win big from, but something to enjoy. Remember to always gamble responsibly.

 

 

 

All Croatian regions remained in red, while the Zagreb area remained in dark red on the latest new epidemiological map from the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) released on Thursday.

Croatia being completely in red was expected, considering that the number of infected and hospitalized people in the country has not changed significantly for weeks.

Red means a 14-day rate of 75-200, with a positive proportion greater than 4 percent, and areas where the 14-day rate is infected is 200 to 500, and dark red areas mean a 14-day rate greater than 500.

The ECDC Epidemiological Advisory Map for Europe is published each week based on the 14-day incidence and the proportion of positive tests in the total number tested.

 

Great news for the Croatian capital and its tourism industry and Dutch national airline, KLM, plans to connect Zagreb and Amsterdam twice a day in November.

KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, the oldest airline in the world, is operating twice a day between Zagreb and Amsterdam until the end of October, reports Croatian Aviation. And KLM will continue to operate twice a day between Zagreb and Amsterdam in November this year, which is great news for all those who use Amsterdam as a transfer hub, as well as a wide network of KLM lines to other destinations in Europe and the world.

In addition to KLM's two flights, Croatia Airlines will also operate on the route between Zagreb and Amsterdam in the winter schedule.

This winter there will be an incredible three daily flights between the capitals of Croatia and the Netherlands, and as there will be no regular flights to Amsterdam from other Croatian airports, most passengers from other parts of Croatia will change in Zagreb from domestic routes to KLM or Croatia Airlines.
