With the boom in Croatia's tourist trade, there's hardly an airport that isn't undergoing expansion, alteration or renovation. And that's a good thing! (Although, it may not seem that way if you arrive during a construction operation).
The fact is that Croatian airport design is functional, efficient and boring. Shopping is minimal, dining facilities are basic and there are few comforts available in the waiting areas. In short, you'll be happy to leave. As least the surface areas are small making it easy to find your check-in desk and departure area. And, yes, you can do the most important thing which is get money through an ATM or exchange foreign currency.
Another positive feature of Croatian airports is that they are a reasonable distance from town. If you mess up on public transport, a taxi is not ruinously expensive.
