Citizens of the Republic of Croatia who celebrate different religious holidays have the right not to work on those dates. This includes Christians who celebrate Christmas on January 7th per the Julian calendar, Muslims on the days of Ramadan Bayram and Kurban Bayram, and Jews on the days of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.

Some cities also celebrate de facto public holidays on their patron saints' feast days. For example, Split celebrates Saint Domnius (Sveti Duje) on May 7th, while Dubrovnik marks the day of Saint Blaise (Sveti Vlaho) on February 3rd.
