Expat community: Release your creativity!
Zagreb offers opportunities for career advancement at international and local companies. Zagreb's people are open to foreigners and we use English widely for business communication even amongst ourselves. The Croatian capital is also suited for self-employment and freelance work. Business facilities and co-working office space are abundant and affordable. Internet is fast and reliable. Croatia was amongst the first countries in Europe to have a 4G LTE network, and free wi-fi is available in most public spaces.
Short travel distances mean that in Zagreb you feel less of the hustle and bustle of the big city, and have more time to focus on what is important. The proximity of Slovenia, Austria and Italy provide Zagreb’s businesses with access to larger markets (with combined population of 77 million), and it is very common for us to either travel to neighbouring countries for business or to establish cross-border operations.
Zagreb has the highest score of any EU capital for the integration of foreigners according to the latest Flash Eurobarometer survey on the quality of life in European cities
