This regulation allows holders of valid dual or multiple entry Schengen visas to enter, stay and transit in or through Croatia WITHOUT the need for an additional visa (for tourist purposes).
Holders of a residence permit, or certain other types of visa issued by a Schengen Area country, can also visit Croatia without requiring an additional visa.
For more details, do see the website of the Croatian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Despite being part of the EU, Croatia IS NOT part of the Schengen Zone.
The country officially applied to join on 1st July 2015 (the two year anniversary of joining the EU), but it is still not yet part of the Zone. However, this means that if you are in possession of a Schengen visa, you will not use up any days of the time limit (90 days in a 180 day period) that you are allowed to be in the Schengen zone if you visit Croatia.
