Mistakes expats make in Croatia

Hello everyone,

Did you make any mistakes when you first moved to Croatia? What were they?

How did you address your mistakes? Did you learn anything from them?

With hindsight, what would you do differently?

Are there any tips you could give future expats in Croatia to help them avoid these kinds of mistakes?

We look forward to hearing from you!


In the equivalent thread on the Hungary forum I stated that my main mistake was the actual decision to live in Hungary. In hindsight I would have moved to Croatia in 2011 instead of Hungary. I did not consider Croatia at that time as it was not in the EU but as I will not be an EU citizen much longer anyway that will become irrelevant.
