State Department: Croatia - Travel Warning, August 18, 1995


Croatia - Travel Warning
August 18, 1995

The United States Department of State warns U.S. citizens to avoid travel to Croatia because of the potential for rapid deterioration of the security situation there. In early August 1995 a number of cities were shelled during a Croatian military offensive into the Serb-held Krajina region. While fighting in that region has subsided, Croatian cities near Serb-held areas of Bosnia and Croatia are still targeted by rebel Serb forces. These include Debrovnik, Kutina, and Osijek. In the recently embattled areas, mines, unexploded ordnance and bands of armed combatants pose risks to travelers.

Despite unsettled conditions in parts of Croatia, the main cities of Zagreb, Rijeka and Split, as well as the Istrian Peninsula and islands north of Makarska, are beyond the range of Serb shells and are largely unaffected by fighting.

No. 95-026

This replaces the Travel Warning for Croatia issued July 26 to add areas of instability and to indicate the authorized departure of U.S. government employees' families has been lifted.
