Where should I setup a bank account in Opatija?

Answer this Question

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

"Before retiring in Opatija, expats should know that the city is known for its Mediterranean climate and beautiful seaside views, making it a popular tourist destination. The cost of living is generally lower than in many Western European countries, but it's still higher compared to other parts of Croatia due to its popularity as a tourist destination. Expats should be aware that while many locals speak English, particularly in the tourism industry, it's beneficial to learn some Croatian to help with day-to-day living. The healthcare system in Croatia is generally good, but it's recommended to have comprehensive health insurance. Opatija has a slower pace of life, which can be a significant change for those used to living in bustling cities. The city is safe, with a low crime rate, but like any place, it's important to take standard precautions. Croatia is part of the European Union, so EU citizens can retire there without needing a visa. However, non-EU citizens will need to apply for a residence permit. Opatija has a rich history and culture, with many festivals and events taking place throughout the year. The city is also known for its cuisine, particularly seafood, so food lovers will be in their element. Public transportation in Opatija is reliable, but having a car can be beneficial for exploring other parts of Croatia. Finally, it's important to note that while Croatia is part of the EU, it does not use the Euro as its currency. The official currency is the Croatian Kuna," commented one expat who made the move to Opatija, Croatia.
