Note: Citizens of the Republic of Croatia who celebrate various religious holidays have the right not to work on these days. These include Christians celebrating Christmas on 7 January according to the Julian calendar, Muslims on the days of Ramadan Bayram and Kurban Bayram, and Jews on the days of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.
- Shrove Tuesday (Pokladni utorak) is the occasion for celebrating carnival in most towns and villages.
- Some cities also celebrate de facto holidays on the occasion of the feast of their patron saints. For example, Split celebrates Saint Domnius (Sveti Duje) on 7 May, while Dubrovnik celebrates Saint Blasius’ Day (Sveti Vlaho) on 3 February.
