What do I need to know before moving to Croatia?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Croatia, they said:

"Croatia is a beautiful country with a rich culture and history. It is important to research the local customs and laws before moving to Croatia. Expats should also be aware of the cost of living in Croatia, as it can be higher than in other countries. Additionally, it is important to learn some of the local language, as English is not widely spoken in Croatia. Expats should also be aware of the climate in Croatia, as it can be quite hot in the summer and cold in the winter. Finally, it is important to research the job market in Croatia before moving, as the economy is still recovering from the recession," said one expat who made the move to Croatia.
