It might not be set in granite but it is set in law in Croatia, the law being the Croatian Tourism Act issued by Croatian Ministry of Tourism.

According to the Act camping outside legal campsites is forbidden and you can be fined up to 3000 HRK for doing it. Now it's up to you whether or not you are willing to break the law in your host country, but I felt obliged to point out to someone who is new to the area that wild camping is not allowed. They can then make up their own mind.

Interestingly it is legal to ask a landowner if you can spend a few nights on his/her land. The landowner shouldn't charge you for this as it is considered as kind of 'hospitable gesture’ and Croatians are very hospitable. Sometimes it's just a case of asking and you'll be welcomed.
