Croatia & Slovenia Adventure Details
CURRENCYThe euro is the official currency of both Croatia and Slovenia. The euro is divided into 100 cents. Banknotes are issued in €500, €200, €100, €50, €20, €10 and €5. Coins are issued in €2, €1, 50c, 20c, 10c, 5c, 2c and 1c denominations.
LANGUAGESCroatian is a South Slavic language that is used primarily by the inhabitants of Croatia as well as Croats in Bosnia and Herzegovina. German and English are the most common second languages. French, Italian, Czech and Hungarian are also spoken.
Slovene, the official language of Slovenia, is also a South Slavic language and is closely related to Croatian and Serbian. Slovene is believed to have been the first written Slavic language. Many Slovenes speak English and Croatian very well and some also speak German and Italian.
ELECTRICAL CURRENTThe electrical current in both Croatia and Slovenia is 230 Volts, 50 Hz. Most U.S.-based devices that need to be charged (i.e., camera batteries, laptops, mp3 players) work in outlets ranging from 110-240 volts, so they typically do not require a power converter. This information is located on the plug or device itself and is usually very easy to find.
ELECTRICAL SOCKETSElectrical outlets in hotels in Croatia and Slovenia are typically type C, which accommodate round two-pin European-style plugs. Thus, if you wish to charge U.S.-based electrical equipment or use personal appliances during your adventure, you will need to bring an outlet adapter. You can purchase one through our Gear Store.
