Security Alert – U.S. Embassy Zagreb, Croatia (December 11, 2023)

Location: Croatia, countrywide

Event: The U.S. Embassy reminds U.S. citizens about personal security during the holiday season. Security measures in Europe remain heightened due to ongoing threats posed by transnational terrorist organizations and individuals inspired by extremist ideology throughout Europe. Although there are no specific threats against Americans in Croatia, we remind everyone to exercise additional vigilance.

Petty crime, such as pickpockets, may also increase during the holidays, particularly in areas frequented by tourists.

Actions to Take:

  • Exercise additional vigilance at holiday festivals and events, places of worship, and locations with large crowds.
  • Review your personal security plans. Be aware of your surroundings. Keep your belongings in sight and valuables in a safe place at all times.
  • Monitor local media for updates.
