Slovenians travel to Croatia as spring break begins
STA, April 24, 2021 – Wait times of up to 45 minutes are reported at the border crossing with Croatia as Slovenians head to their favorite holiday destination as the May 1 school break begins on Saturday.
With some of the coronavirus restrictions lifted, including a ban on travel between regions yesterday, traffic was expected to be occupied by vacationers and day trippers.
The cars waited about 45 minutes to enter Croatia at the Dragonja junction and about half an hour in Sečovlje. Delays are also reported on the highway to the coast, mainly due to road works, and on the highway to Maribor.
Anita Leskovec, spokesperson for the Koper Police Department, told STA that the delays at border crossings were not due to border control issues.
She said people had prepared well to cross the border and for the most part had all the necessary documents and Covid evidence with them.
Where can I take a COVID test in Slovenia?
To enter Croatia, passengers need a negative PCR or rapid antigen test less than 48 hours old, or a certificate proving that they have recovered from Covid-19 within the last 180 days or have been vaccinated against it. Children up to the age of 7 are exempt if traveling with parents or guardians who meet any of the valid conditions.
