Njuškalo.hr, founded in 2007, is the biggest and most visited public advertising website (“internetski oglasnik”) in Croatia. More than 100 employees help visitors find products using the portal.

Njuškalo is similar to Craigslist in other countries in that it is a classifieds site for public use. People can advertise what they are selling, give away products or services, or price compare. It connects hundreds of sellers and buyers on a daily basis. You may be surprised at some of the weird stuff that can be found on Njuškalo.

While this list is not inclusive, here are just a few examples of what you can find:

  • Apartments, land, and houses
  • Furniture
  • Cars
  • Electronics
  • Boats
  • Books
  • Jobs
  • Bicycles
  • Food products

Everyone likes to visit Njuškalo because it is simple to use, and there really is no competitor. If you want to find the price of a new or used product, you use this site to do your research and price compare.

Since Njuškalo is only in the Croatian language and can be challenging to navigate for English speakers, we’ve put together our guide to using Njuškalo including English translations. Google Translate can’t always capture the nuance of Croatian. 🙂

How Njuškalo is organized
