Expat Facebook Groups in Croatia

Photo by Jaime Silva

Two of the most frequent questions I get on this site is “Where can I meet people?” and “Where can I find XYZ thing/place/person I need?”. Croatia can be a truly lonely place when you don’t know anybody and are oblivious as to how to get simple things accomplished.

Over the past few years, a number of Facebook groups and pages have cropped up that serve as a community for foreigners living in Croatia. These groups are also a hub for local Croatians interested in mingling with the expat community.

In these groups, you have the opportunity to:

  • Meet people, foreign and local alike
  • Get answers to your most pressing “living in Croatia” questions
  • Clue into local events and culture
  • Get a front-row seat for the gripes and complaints of those living here

The most active expat groups organize their own group-specific outings from dinners out to walking tours to day trips to nearby sites to super long coffees in the sun.

Before joining the groups, I highly recommend you read this post first.

#13 Bonus

These groups are for when you are so damned fed up that you need to scream something into the void without any judgment to an international audience that understands your pain. They are not for gentle snowflakes.

And now an expat group focused solely on amazing women living abroad.
