Balance between work and rest

Take advantage of coastal living. After a day of work, relax on the beach, enjoy the sunset or explore the gems that the coast hides. Weekends are perfect for short trips to nearby islands or for activities such as sailing, hiking and cycling, which you can read more about in a previous blog.

Plan your finances and health insurance

The key to a carefree stay is to have a clear financial plan in order to ensure a smooth experience during your stay in any country, including Croatia. In addition to regular monitoring of costs and budgeting, it is important to consider the cost of living in different parts of Croatia, which can vary significantly. Health insurance is another vital aspect to consider, ensuring that you are protected in case of illness or accident. Exploring long-term residency options, including a Croatian visa, can open the door to an extended stay and exploring the country on a larger scale. Finally, it's worth exploring local banks and digital banking options to manage your finances with ease and without unnecessary international transaction fees.
