Expat Facebook Groups in Croatia

UPDATED: 11.5.2023.

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.

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