Expat guide: Zagreb, CroatiaAnd another one! After Malta and Kuwait, we are now publishing our new city guide for expatriates in Zagreb (Croatia). Nothing better to finish an exceptional month in May for our expat guides. :-)

A small country that's remarkably easy on the eyes, Croatia attracts millions of visitors annually to its stunning Adriatic coast. Still, it's not yet a household name - but even if you think you haven't heard of it, chances are, you have. Among other claims to fame, Croatia gave the world the necktie (or cravat), the fountain pen, and the first functioning parachute, and scientific genius Nikola Tesla.

Zagreb, the capital city of Croatia, is often described as "Vienna's little sister," thanks to its neo-baroque architecture, lush city parks, numerous cake shops and open-air markets, and a café culture that rivals that of Paris. The people of Zagreb love to socialize, and any time of day will do for an hours-long chat over coffee or a drink.

Compared to the rest of Croatia and other Eastern European countries, Zagreb offers better economic opportunities and a higher salary. However, average salaries for the city are still well below most Western European cities. The average net salary in Zagreb was 827 Euro (1105 USD) in September 2012 compared with the country's average of 709 Euro (947 USD).


You will find the usual articles in our guide to prepare your expatriation to Zagreb and manage your life once in there: Overview, Job, Passport, Visa & Permits, International Removal Companies, Finding Accommodation in Croatia, Work, Benefits and Tax, Moving in, Education, Health, Practical Life (banks, transport, shopping...), Entertainment...

You can also discuss and share experience in Croatia in our forum.

Last but not least, you can download the full guide in PDF format, in order to read quietly and maybe to upload on your mobile or tablet PC/iPad.
