Croatian marine meteorological service is a modern service based on the maritime tradition, the science of meteorology, technology and telecommunications. Our basic objective is protection and safety of human lives and navigation at sea as well as of numerous activities going on on seas, islands and littoral. HEAD OFFICE of Marine Meteorological Service
The Marine Meteorological Service in the Adriatic was established in 1860. First meteorological station began with its work in Dubrovnik in 1851.
