Expat Facebook Groups in Croatia

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. This 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 in to 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.
