The days are getting longer in March and the weather is warming up a bit. It's a great month for outdoor activities and a great month for visiting Dubrovnik as there are fewer people and the town beats to local rhythms.
Average March Temperatures (Celsius)
Culture buffs will find the concert, theatre, dance and opera season in full swing in Zagreb, Split and Dubrovnik. With everyone hard at work at their day jobs, Croatian nightlife is mostly confined to weekends with bars, music clubs and discos thriving from Friday to Sunday.
Usually the winter snows are starting to melt which means it's a great time to visit places with waterfalls such is Plitvice Lakes and Krka National Park. Although still too chilly to swim. it's a good time for vigorous activities such as hiking, cycling or rock climbing.
Depending on the calendar, it may be time for Palm Sunday or Easter or you may be able to take part in Holy Week in Korcula when the streets of the Old Town are filled with processions by Korcula's age-old brotherhoods. There's likely to be a fair or special exhibition in Zagreb where you can also check out the yearly International Documentary Film Festival (late February-early March)
