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.

You quote the 'Croatian Tourism Act'. Do you mean the 'Act for the Provision of Tourism Services' passed on 15th June 2007? If so, could you please quote the Article and paragraph which covers wildcamping?

Maybe I have got the wrong Act, as the one I have referred to only seems to put obligations on those providing tourism services.
