Country profile

Why consider Croatia for medical treatment?

As a former Yugoslav republic Croatia has been independent since 1991 and is fairly new on the medical tourism circuit but offers great savings and top quality treatments.

As the country’s capital and the social, cultural and economic hub, many private surgeries are located in Zagreb, as well as the Istrian town of Rovinj, a beautiful fishing village with lots of seafront bars, coffee houses and restaurants. Some medical tourists are able to combine their treatment needs with a holiday in Rovinj. It is an excellent idea - with its ancient walled centre, islands, rocky beaches and clear blue water which is perfect for snorkelling - Rovinj is a dream location and the quality of care and the cost of dentistry is highly competitive.

Croatian doctors study for many years to train and qualify, keeping up to date with the latest approaches.  Surgeries in Croatia specialising in medical tourism, have modern high tech equipment and friendly, approachable staff.

Croatia has four seasons and two climatic zones.  Inland, visitors can enjoy temperate continental weather and a pleasant Mediterranean climate along the Adriatic coast with plenty of sunshine, dry hot summers and mild, humid winters.  The best time to visit Croatia is spring and autumn if you want to avoid the really hot weather, but if you’re keen to spend recuperative time on the beaches then July and August are ideal!
