If you want to work in Croatia, where should you go? Naturally, your first choice is Zagreb, the country's capital. It's perhaps the biggest and busiest business hub in the country, home to several jobs for locals and foreigners alike. But where else? Certainly, more cities in Croatia can provide as many work opportunities as the capital city, right? Correct! Apart from Zagreb, Croatia also has Split, Dubrovnik, Virovitica, Rijeka, and even Hvar. Though they each have different main industries, you'll find that they're just as busy as Zagreb.

The Best Cities to Find Work in Croatia


Zagreb

Let's start this list with the most obvious choice: Zagreb. The capital city of Croatia is among its biggest business hubs. Why do you think so many people are moving to Zagreb? There are plenty of opportunities here, ranging from office work to freelance jobs. Zagreb's main industries include electrical manufacturing, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, the food industry, news media, and tourism, among many others. If you work in any of these fields, you can guarantee that you'll get a job in the city. At the same time, with Zagreb's many coworking spaces, it's not hard for a freelancer to relocate here either.

Split

Split is one of the biggest cities in Croatia, both in size and job market. It may not look it since it's a coastal city luring vacationers from all around the world, but it's a fairly bustling metropolis in its own right. Naturally, tourism is one of its biggest industries, especially when it comes to hospitality. The food, oil, and chemical industries also thrive in Split, making it a go-to city for anyone working in these fields. Fortunately, there are many luxury homes in Split that you can rent if you ever relocate to this city for work.

Dubrovnik

From chemical & plastics to the food and tourism industries, Croatia's job market thrives in Dubrovnik. It is one of the biggest cities in the country, after all, so it makes sense that it's also one that has many opportunities in store. It also helps that it's a popular tourist destination. Located right by the Dalmatian Coast, Dubrovnik has always drawn in people with its glimmering aquamarine waters and white sandy shorelines. Over time, those who have vacationed here often eventually relocated here too, thereby helping make the city even bigger and busier.

Istria

Istria is also by the Dalmatian Coast and its job market heavily relies on it. Here, the seafood industry reigns supreme. Specifically, sea fishing, fish growing, agriculture, and of course, the food industry. There's just something about its waters, which is the Adriatic Sea, that has some of the best seafood this side of the Mediterranean. Moreover, though it's not as well-known a destination as Dubrovnik, you can count tourism & hospitality among its many main industries too. From the great food to the beautiful beaches, what tourists wouldn't want to have a holiday here? And what worker wouldn't want to live and get a job here too?

Zadar

Compared to Split, Dubrovnik, and Istria, Zadar is an even more unknown city in Croatia. Specifically, on the country's famous Dalmatian coast. This place doesn't get as many tourist as those famous destinations, but that doesn't mean there isn't anything worthwhile here either. On the contrary, Zadar is surprisingly busy and has many job opportunities in store for locals and foreigners alike. The city's main industries include trade, manufacturing, maritime transport, agriculture, handicrafts, and tourism, after all. With such a diverse group of sectors, there's no way you can't find work in Zadar. The city also also welcoming to freelancers with its many coworking spaces and wifi-filled cafes.

The food industry, IT, renewable energy, and tourism sectors all thrive here.
