Croatia is one of the safest countries in Europe, according to statistical data, but which places in the country are the safest?
The safest places in Croatia last year, according to the rate of assaults and property crimes, and the rate of traffic offences and drug abuse, were revealed at a recent conference in Zadar.
Sinj, situated inland from Split, is officially the safest town with a safety and security rate standing at 1.51. Petrinja, a town located around 50 kilometres south-east of the capital Zagreb, was second with a safety and security rate of 1.75.
