The State Department has recently issued a general alarm in the EU to all Americans who want to travel across the Atlantic for the Christmas holiday season. Due to increase risk of terrorist attacks in Europe the State Department has listed the possible dangers for US tourists.
With so many people on the move for Christmas it makes sense release such warnings. The State Department has stated that when it comes to Croatia as a Christmas and New Year destination the security level is much higher than the “old” European Union. However they have added that there is no threat of terrorism in Croatia and that it is not on the list of countries that American citizens need to avoid.
Of course this doesn’t mean that there isn’t any risk when holidaying in Croatia. The first risk for tourists is the areas of the country that still have mines from the Homeland War in the early 1990’s. They add that the mined areas are well marked and further information can be found on the internet. The US estimate that Croatia will be mine free by the 2018.
