May is one of the most beautiful months to visit Croatia. It's before the big summer onslaught of tourists yet the weather is warm and sunny enough to enjoy exploring the Croatian coast and islands.

Average May Temperatures (Celsius)

Destination Daytime Nighttime
Zagreb +19 +7
Dubrovnik +22 +14
Split +24 +17
Zadar +21 +13
Rijeka +21 +14
Porec +20 +13
Pula +22 +13
 

It's not quite beach weather (except maybe towards the end of the month) as the water is likely to be bracing but the sun is reliable enough to give you a good chance of beginning your summer tan.

Accommodation prices are also more reasonable than in the height of the summer season except in Dubrovnik where May is already busy. Along the coast it's still best to reserve ahead for the widest choice. Also in May, you can get great deals on flight/hotel/car packages. Check out:

NATIONAL HOLIDAYS

International Flower Fair

What could usher in spring better than a flower fair? The basement halls of Diocletian's Palace are filled with flowers as florists compete for the best display.

St Duje Day

The patron saint of Split is St Duje (St Domnius) and his feast day is on May 7. Expect games, prizes, competitions, processions and, possibly, a giant risotto in the town centre.

Zrce

Spring Break!
Zrce beach is the center of the universe as far as summer nightlife is concerned. The action starts to heat up in May with a "spring break" weekend. It's possible to ring in the new season with a transfer from Split, Sibenik or Trogir. More.

Zagreb

Jeanne in DubrovnikFloraart: Zagreb Flower Show

At the end of May or beginning of June, some 120 florists and garden specialists descend on Zagreb to exhibit their flower arrangements and gardening equipment.
