Digital Nomad Guide to Living in Zagreb

Zagreb croatia

The capital city of Croatia is a lively, historic, vibrant, and fun place to spend some time. If you’re thinking of living in Zagreb, get ready for an experience like no other; this place is full of things to see and do, and you’ll probably never want to leave. I know I didn’t.

In January 2021, Croatia’s digital nomad visa opened the doors for more people to spend time in this beautiful country. For me, it’s one of the best places in the world; the scenery, beaches, culture, food, and friendly locals are second to none. But as a digital nomad living in Zagreb, you’ll need to know what to expect before you go.

Handily, I can share my experiences so you can ensure a smooth stay in this beautiful city.

About Zagreb

Zagreb croatia

Zagreb is both the capital and largest city in Croatia. It’s located in the north of the country, not far from the border with Slovenia. It’s a very pretty city too, standing on the banks of the Sava River, with the huge Medvednica mountain looming in the near distance.

If you’re a history lover, you’re sure to enjoy the city’s rich Roman past. There are countless ruins around the city, including the Roman Andautonia, and Zagreb as a whole is packed with historical nods, as the whole city came to be in 1134.

But it’s not all history. Zagreb is packed with modern-day fun too, including nightlife, gastronomy, shopping, and art. The surrounding area is also full of must-visit places, with hiking trails in the Medvednica mountain and Veternica Cave, packed with archaeological wonders.

Digital Nomad in Zagreb: Personal Experience

For me, the great thing about life in Zagreb is that it’s more authentic than many other parts of the country. If you go to a beach destination, like Split or Dubrovnik, sure, you’ll see local life, but not like you can in Zagreb. I felt welcomed by the locals in the capital city, and by the end of my time there, I really felt like I’d experienced the real Croatia.

Zagreb is a great spot for digital nomads. I never had any issues with the WiFi, I met countless other remote workers and found many coworking spaces and cafes to work from.

There’s plenty to see and do in and around the city too. Your days off will never be boring, and as far as food goes, you’ll have an incredible choice available to you.
