The Croatian postal system is known as Pošta (prounced "po-sh-ta"), and you can find them everywhere. Luckily, their big yellow sign is pretty hard to miss. Just in case, here is the full list of post offices, which is searchable by zip code and types of service. If you don't know a zip code, you can search for them by city here.
If you are curious about how much it will be to mail something, they have a great postage calculator on their web site.
Here are some examples:
- Letter within Croatia – 3.10 kuna
- Priority letter within Croatia – 4.60 kuna
- Postcard going to the US – 7.00 kuna
Their services, in addition to mail, include:
- Western Union money transfers
- Bill Payment
- Phone Cards
- Banking Services (more on this in another post)
- Insurance (home, life, health, auto)
- Money exchange
I've sent mail, retrieved a Western Union money transfer and used their banking services all with ease. Most of the agents speak English, or at a minimum, understand it so that communication is simple (unless you are in a very rural area).
