  1. Croatia is ruled by Balkan mafia called HDZ politic party. They pay their members through earnings they do through tourism. I'm borned and raised in Croatia, and if you hear that here is only 200 deseased with Covid-19, I assure you that you can multiply that number by a thousand.

  2. Quarantine invented in Dubrovnik (Source wikipedia) – A document from 1377 states that before entering the city-state of Ragusa in Dalmatia (modern Dubrovnik in Croatia), newcomers had to spend 30 days (a trentine) in a restricted place (originally nearby islands) waiting to see whether the symptoms of Black Death would develop.[16] In 1448 the Venetian Senate prolonged the waiting period to 40 days, thus giving birth to the term "quarantine".[1] The forty-day quarantine proved to be an effective formula for handling outbreaks of the plague. Dubrovnik was the first city in Europe to set up quarantine sites such as the Lazzarettos of Dubrovnik where arriving ship personnel were held for up to 40 days. Details you can find in BBC webpage

  3. Croatian here. We will remain open, you don't need to worry about that. No more closures, because our economy can't handle it. If there is going to be a travel ban, it is not for leaving Croatia so most likely you won't get stuck here in the middle of the tourist season. And this goes for whole August, and first part of September. Later you depend on airliners, because the tourist season is coming to an end. However, if there are connections, and if the weather is nice, it is beautiful here in late September and some years even in October, and with much less people. You can monitor if you are worried about the virus. Face masks are mandatory in public transport, shops, closed spaces… social distancing as well… And the government is still against punishing people so someone will just warn you to do or don't do something and that's it. The only people who were fined were those coming out of quarantine (but everyone now agrees, even that was too strict) and those who didn't listen to warnings, instead they would attack the police, etc. We have the same disagreements that you have in the US, about the effectiveness of surgical masks etc. However, there was something about tourists who get COVID positive here in Croatia… you should ask through official channels what are your options if that happens. But it is for sure you will not be left out on the street to die, you will get medical help. This is Croatia. Emergency service is free for everyone in need, as far as I know.
    Also, if you check the link I gave you, you'll see that we are breaking down the second wave. Even during the first wave we didn't have complete lockdown. People would go out on the street as much as they wanted, whenever they wanted, but police would ask them to leave if there is a vast number of people in the same small park or something like that. So life was actually good during that period. And second wave came after we opened for travel, and also most people were infected in nightclubs, or wedding party or similar large gatherings. Avoid!
    Oh, and one thing that can happen is if you are in some small place or island in Croatia, and the virus starts spreading locally in such way that it becomes difficult to trace it, they just put the whole place in 2 weeks quarantine. But it this happened two or three times in total, so it is not likely.
    Also, don't just visit Dubrovnik. There are so many other beautiful places along the coast, and on the islands… make your research and enjoy. I hope you don't run into any sort of bad things, as it happens sometimes… but just go to another location and keep enjoying your stay.
    If I can make a few recommendations: google out Rab, Mali Lošinj, Cres, Šibenik, Korčula, Hvar, Makarska, Split… Or maybe some smaller place nearby. And never jump into the sea where you can't see the bottom and don't know how deep it is. A few days ago 15 year old kid broke his spine, and he is not the first one to do something that stupid. Popular (but very shallow) beach Bačvice in Split. And usually you can't see the bottom because of sand and muddy water. If you really must do it, jump on your feet and break your leg. Better than your neck.

  4. Croatia survives on tourism. Residents make their yearly income there in the span of 4 months and live on it for the whole year. If they don’t open, their economy will undoubtedly collapse. (Fun fact: Dubrovnik is where they film parts of Game of Thrones)
