Croatia’s Enviroment Minister Mihael Zmajlović has presented results of testing of swimming water quality at Croatian beaches today, and the results confirm what is a well-known fact already – that Croatia is home to the cleanest swimming water in Europe…

99% of tested waters rated ‘excellent’ or ‘good’, putting Croatia at the top of Europe for the quality of swimming waters at its beaches.

“Croatia has for years been at the top in Europe for its clean sea, and that we can rightly be proud of. In the last four seasons our swimming water quality was excellent or good in as high as 99% points of measurement. Our obligation is to work to preserve this situation and to transform this potential into sustainable growth and development, especially in tourism,” Minister Zmajlović told a press conference about Croatia’s swimming water quality on Friday.

Swimming water quality in Croatia is of an extremely high quality, said the ministry, adding that from 2010 to 2013 testing has shown the water not to drop below 99% on all the points of measured. Croatia has dominated the top three places in Europe for swimming water quality with Cyprus and Malta. The latest results came after 779 beaches in 7 counties were tested.

“Our water is among the cleanest in Europe. We are proud of that, and it is our task to keep it that way,” concluded Zmajlović.

    Mr. Zmajlovic, if you actually believe in your statement then you would be OPPOSED to oil and gas drilling in the Croatian Adriatic! Yes??

    For all those who love the Croatian Adriatic and its culture, please help us keep Mr. Zmajlović to his word. SIGN THE WORLDWIDE PETITION > http://chn.ge/1pIJiBg

    Thank you,

    • How do you think poor people in Croatia can live. Buy oil from someone else. They have no money. Socialists killed it and now you want to take little opportunity from them. Here is Santa Barbara, California, they drilled for oil and beaches are clean. You don’t want them to use oil so they can burn wood and coal and pollute the air even more.
