What is it like to retire in Croatia?
"The expats are mainly German. Few are English speaking. This is a highly seasonal area. The places open in May and close in September. During the tourist season, there is considerable night life, great restaurants, cafes etc. In the winter, it is just locals. The history goes back 3,000 years. Vast number of historic sites, nearby national parks, the Adriatic to swim in and for water sports. You can do as much or as little as you want,"
said a retiree who moved to Split, Croatia.
"No need for expat communities, but with a couple of international friends too.
Croatia knows many cultural attractions, especially in Zagreb and Split, with tons of festivals, concerts and expositions.
Recreation, certainly for active people is all around, and at least half the year the Adriatic offers all options for water lovers,"
said another retiree in Dubrovnik.
