Croatia is without doubt one of the safest countries in Europe and latest figures from the statistical wing of the EU, Eurostat, show that car theft in Croatia is the third lowest of all EU members.
Police across the European Union recorded on average 697,000 car thefts yearly over the period 2015 to 2017, a 29 percent reduction compared to the period 2008 to 2010. Between 2008 and 2017, there were downward trends in most EU Member States.
On average over 2015 to 2017, the figures were highest in Luxembourg (328 police-recorded car thefts per 100 000 inhabitants), followed by Greece (269), Italy (257), Sweden (256), France (247) and Czechia (238). The lowest figures in the EU were observed in Slovakia and Estonia (both 31), Croatia (20), Romania (15) and Denmark (4).
