Is the cost of living in Zagreb high?

Answer this Question

We asked people how much they someone comfortably live on in Zagreb, they wrote...

"The cost of living in Zagreb is considered to be relatively affordable compared to many other European cities. Rent for a one-bedroom apartment in the city center can be quite reasonable, while those looking to live outside of the city center can find even cheaper options. Groceries are also quite affordable, with local markets offering fresh produce at lower prices. Eating out at restaurants can vary, with inexpensive options available, as well as more upscale dining experiences. Public transportation in Zagreb is efficient and affordable, with options including trams, buses, and trains. Alternatively, the cost of maintaining a car, including gas and parking, can be higher. Utilities such as electricity, heating, cooling, and water are not typically included in the rent and can add to the monthly expenses, but these are generally not exorbitant. Internet and mobile phone services are also reasonably priced. Healthcare in Zagreb is of a good standard and is generally affordable, particularly for those who are covered by health insurance. Overall, while salaries in Zagreb may be lower than in some other European cities, this is often balanced out by the lower cost of living," remarked another expat in Zagreb, Croatia.
