Lewd and drunk tourists to be fined heavily in Croatia

hvarThe mayor of Croatia’s popular party resort island of Hvar introduced new rule to impose heavy fines of British tourists to  put an end to debauchery.


According to the local media, the entrances to the town’s centre had signs reading  “Save Your Money and Enjoy Hvar” along with the graphic representations of detailed offences and the corresponding penalties.


The highest fine, €700 (£620) is for public alcohol-drinking, eating or sleeping. Also, tourists who will  walking around in swimsuits in Hvar’s historic centre will be slapped with  €600 fine and those not wearing top will be fined €500.


Newly elected mayor Rikardo Novak had earlier pledged he would “make decent” young tourists visiting the biggest town on one of the most popular southern Croatian islands. He said, “they  are vomiting in town, urinating on every corner, walking without T-shirts … crawling around, unconscious,” Novak told local media in June, announcing measures to change such behaviour. “Young tourists are welcome, but they will have to learn how to behave here.”


Last month the mayor of Novalja, on the northern island of Pag, also complained about young mostly British tourists visiting his town.


Hvar and Novalja are common summer party destination for young tourists.


Tourism is a major industry for Croatia. Visitors flock to its stunning Adriatic coast, which has more than 1,000 islands and islets.


Last year the Balkan country welcomed nearly 16 million visitors, far outstripping its population of 4.2 million people.
