Croatia’s gay cruises has become interesting in these past years but Croatia is still far away from being a gay friendly country.

For more information I suggest specific websites where you can find information about tourist info, gay guide, accommodation, gay hotels and apartments in Zagreb, Rovinj, Dubrovnik, Hvar, Split and Trogir.

I personally suggest you to chose one of two cruises starting from Split and Dubrovnik to discover all beauties of Dalmatian coast and islands, along with like-minded enthusiasts on a specialized cruise with only gay passengers and friendly crew.

Paradise Cruise of Dalmatia from Split

Gay couples cruisingThe Croatian coast is amongst the most beautiful in Europe, so if you would like to cruise along the divine Adriatic coast together with your gay partner, this category might be the perfect one for you.

If you are single and looking to meet your soul mate, who knows this just might be the right place.

Tips for Gay and Lesbian Travelers

In Roman Catholic Croatia, gays are tolerated but not celebrated. The country legalized homosexuality in 1977, but overt homosexual behavior is frowned upon in general and may be met with hostility in rural areas. Read more this Frommers article!

In September 2013, global human rights group Amnesty International named and shamed Croatia as one of several EU member states whose laws still insufficiently protect against the discrimination, physical assault or murder of LGBT people.
