Three weekends ahead of us will be marked with large crowds and frequent traffic jams – writes Poslovni.hr according to the data from Croatian auto club (HAK).
At the beginning of the forthcoming weekend, the summer holidays in Germany and the Netherlands start. Many are on their way already, since they started their trip on Thursday night and so a significant inflow of vehicles to Croatia is expected already during the day, especially towards border crossings. The peak of that wave is expected on Saturday, July 22nd, all day in both directions, and on Sunday, July 23rd, mainly in return.
Apart from motorized citizens from Western European countries, many Croats will spend the summer vacation on the South.
On Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays, the most significant jams are expected in the following sections:
- A2 Zagreb-Macelj Highway, A3 Bregana-Lipovac, A4 Zagreb-Gorican, A7 Rupa-Rijeka;
- Highway A1 Zagreb-Split-Ploče and A6 Rijeka-Zagreb;
- The Zagreb Bypass (A3) ; Istrian ipsilon (A8 and A9);
- Border crossings with Slovenia (Bregana, Macelj, Rupa, Kaštel), Bosnia and Herzegovina (Metković, Zaton Doli, Klek, Slavonski Brod, Stara Gradiska ...), Serbia (Bajakovo and Tovarnik) and Montenegro (Karasovići);
- Along the Adriatic Highway (DC8) near the tourist centers and on the Krk Bridge; In the ports of Zadar and Split, and at the ports of the North and Central Dalmatian islands.
HAK points out that in the direction of the sea, the worst traffic will be on Saturday from 4 to 12 am, and on the way back during Saturday and Sunday in the afternoon, so they advise not to travel then. You can check the traffic situation here.
