What do I need to know before moving to Porec?

Answer this Question

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Porec, they said...

"Porec is a small coastal town known for its Roman architecture, beautiful beaches, and vibrant nightlife. The official language is Croatian, but English, Italian, and German are also widely spoken due to the town's popularity with tourists. The local currency is the Croatian Kuna, and while some places may accept Euros, it's best to have Kuna on hand. The cost of living in Porec is relatively low compared to other European cities, but it can be higher during the peak tourist season. Renting an apartment can be challenging during the summer months due to the influx of tourists, so it's advisable to secure accommodation well in advance. The town has a Mediterranean climate with hot summers and mild winters. It's important to note that Porec is a popular tourist destination, especially during the summer months, so it can get quite crowded. The healthcare system in Croatia is generally good, but it's recommended that expats have comprehensive health insurance. Public transportation in Porec is reliable, but many residents prefer to walk or bike due to the town's small size. Croatian cuisine is diverse and delicious, with a strong emphasis on seafood due to Porec's coastal location. The town is also known for its wine, and there are many vineyards in the surrounding area. Porec has a rich history and culture, with many festivals and events taking place throughout the year. The town is also home to the Euphrasian Basilica, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Finally, it's important to note that while Croatia is a member of the European Union, it is not part of the Schengen Area. This means that different visa rules may apply, so it's important to check the specific requirements before moving," explained one expat living in Porec, Croatia.
