When it comes to visiting Croatia, there are so many positive things to it. Besides being not mainstreamed discovered yet and has to offer so many exciting activities on a small and well-connected space, you can put an additional plus when it comes to prices and value for money. Taking into consideration that an average Croatian salary (from 2016. data) is 670€, you can quickly conclude that prices in Croatia would be way lower than in most of Europe.
Of course, it all depends on what you’re willing to spend your money on, but recent surveys show that an average tourist in Croatia who visits a couple of cultural facilities, takes an excursion or two and finds time for entertainment spends on average around 60€ and that is with food included.
Accommodation price depends on where you’re staying and private accommodation has various prices from 10€ per night to 50€ per night. Hotels also depend on how many stars they have but everything is easily visible online and having in mind that general average price per night of private and non-private accommodation is around 35€ still shows that the prices are more than reasonable.
If you want to prolong your stay and rent an one bedroom apartment in Croatia, that will (in average) be around 300€ in comparison with Spain- 550€ and Germany 650€. Quite cheap, right?

Bottled water of 0,5l will cost you 1€, and an interesting fact is that you can buy cigarettes in Croatia quite cheaper than most anywhere around for a pack starting from 3€ to those most expensive not over 4€.
