Where should I setup a bank account in Pula?

Answer this Question

We asked expats in Pula what banks they use and there advice about banking. They advised...

"Before retiring in Pula, expats should know that the official language is Croatian, so learning the basics of the language would be beneficial, although English is widely spoken in tourist areas. The cost of living in Pula is generally lower than in many Western European countries, but it's important to budget carefully as pensions may not stretch as far as expected. Healthcare in Croatia is of a high standard, but expats should ensure they have comprehensive health insurance, as not all services are covered by the state system. Pula has a Mediterranean climate with hot summers and mild winters, which can be a significant change for those used to cooler climates. The city is known for its rich history and cultural heritage, including the well-preserved Roman amphitheater, which can provide plenty of activities for retirees. Croatia is part of the European Union, so EU citizens can retire there without a visa, but non-EU citizens will need to apply for a residence permit. Public transportation in Pula is reliable and affordable, but many expats choose to buy a car for more freedom to explore the surrounding areas. Croatian cuisine is diverse and delicious, with a strong emphasis on fresh, local ingredients, particularly seafood. Pula is a safe city with a low crime rate, but like anywhere, it's important to take basic precautions, particularly in tourist areas. Finally, it's important to understand the local customs and traditions to integrate into the local community, as Croatians are known for their hospitality and strong sense of community," said a member in Pula, Croatia.
