Even though homosexuality is legal in Croatia, full acceptance is a long way away. The times they are a-changin' though, especially in Zagreb which is the only place, so far, you'll find openly gay clubs. Each year in June, Zagreb's gay and lesbian denizens strut their stuff during the Gay Pride Day celebration. See more on Zagreb's Gay Pride Day.
Along the coast, gays will find Dubrovnik is the most tolerant of Croatia's coastal towns. Although there is not (yet) an exclusively gay bar, gays are most welcome at Troubadur (see more on Dubrovnik nightlife). As elsewhere in Croatia, naturist beaches are a popular meeting place for gays, especially the one on Lokrum Island.
One easy way to make sure you have a comfortable stay is to book with TUI Freedom Holidays.
