A free zone is a specially fenced and marked part of the territory located in the area of a seaport or airport, a river pier, along an international road and in other areas where the conditions for the operation of a free zone exist

The free zone is characterized by a business regime different from the regime in the rest of the country (customs and tax character), it must be fenced, marked and arranged so that the movement of goods and people into or out of the free zone can only take place through certain exits or entrances.
In the Republic of Croatia there are currently six free zones operating, two of which are inland located in Zagreb and Škrljevo, and four are port free zones located in Pula, Rijeka, Split and Ploče.
