Can You Drink Outside In Croatia?

Drinking alcohol outside of restaurants and bars is NOT ALLOWED in most, if not all, Croatian cities.
However, the way local authorities across Croatia sanction drinking in public may differ. The fines range from issuing a warning, over 30€ to as much as 700€.
Some public areas have traditionally been associated with drinking alcohol, so the authorities might even turn the blind eye on that practice under certain circumstances.
