Just how safe is Croatia?
While everyone complains about some aspect of life or another here in Croatia, the reality is that the safety levels are excellent. Your kids can easily be left to play on their own like ”back in the good old days” in other countries, and in many aspects it’s as if time has stood still. The majority of crime here is traffic crime, rarely does anything major occur.
A list of the most dangerous and the safest countries across the planet has been published, and the answer to the question ”How safe is Croatia?” has been been delivered.
As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 17th of November, 2018, Libya, Afghanistan and Somalia are listed as the most dangerous countries in the world, while here in Europe, Finland, Norway, and Iceland have been rated as the safest.
The list has been created from the data of the security specialists of the International SOS and Control Risk companies, which deal with the topics of both medical and safety assistance. On their interactive map, you can find data for countries that are rated in three categories – safety, medical questions, and road safety, according to a report from Večernji list.
The countries that are marked in a dark red colour are the worst rated when it comes to safety and security, while those in a light green colour have been considered to be the safest.
In Croatia’s immediate vicinity, Slovenia has been declared the safest while Kosovo is the least secure. Croatia’s neighbour to the north, Slovenia, has been rated as a country with low risk and Kosovo carries a medium risk. Croatia, as well as its neighbours; Hungary, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, and Montenegro are rated as countries with a low risk.
While some are annoyed by the way people tend to drive here, even when it comes to road safety, Croatia is also a country with an apparent low risk according to this data, while in the medical category, Croatia belongs to the best possible category.
