In the first place medical care in Croatia is guaranteed in hospitals in large cities. However in all villages there are doctors and small clinics. For example on the island of Dugi otok there are three doctors working in the villages of Bozava, Zman and Sali, where there is also a dentist.

Nevertheless if you need special medications we strongly recommend that you have a sufficient supply and take them with you on vacation.
But if you are taking special medications for example for the treatment of mental illnesses check with the consulate of your country whether there are special requirements for entry into Croatia.

However pharmacies in Croatia are well stocked. Saying that it may happen that the drug you use does not have the same name but you only need to know the active ingredient and the pharmacist will suggest the corresponding medicinal.
