Dealing with emergency situations in Croatia

Hello everybody,

Dealing with unexpected situations abroad can be a very difficult matter. In order to better help expats and soon-to-be expats in Croatia face such tricky situations, we invite you to share your advice and experience.

What are the key emergency numbers you should know by heart?

In the event of a legal problem, an accident, a natural disaster, an injury or the death of a close family member, what are the first things to do in Croatia?

What are the things to plan ahead in order to better cope with such unexpected situations (registration at the Embassy, transport, medical, comprehensive insurance for instance)?

If you have gone through such experiences in Croatia, do not hesitate to share your story.

Thank you in advance!


I am hoping there will be some information here soon. We are very near a hospital, but short of asking our landlord what to do, I am uninformed.
The last country we lived in had very complicated rules regarding death of an "alien" in their country so I would be very interested in knowing how it - dying - is handled here.
