Well, I go there once every couple of months: I don't live there.. I stay at the HOtel Dubrovnik and don't wander too far from the city centre..

''Also, Zagreb doesn't really give the impression of being poor to an outsider.''
I see you've posted only three days ago, and I'm very surprised by this statement. I've recently moved to Zagreb and honestly, I've seen more homeless (maybe they're just poor, not homeless) going through rubbish bins than pretty women, I felt I was in some poor ex-soviet country like Ukraine or something, don't know what the hell happened to Zagreb in past few years.

#Zagreb Local
Given that I go to Zagreb a lot for work, I often spend the weekend in neighbouring Italy, Austria or Slovenia.
What surprises me is that in Trieste, for example, you spend more or less the same for a good meal but people in Italy are considerably richer than in Croatia. Same goes for Austria.

Also, Zagreb doesn't really give the impression of being poor to an outsider.. it looks almost European. Maybe not like Lubiana but close.
#Zagreb local on Mar 14, 2014 :
Surprised to see how accurate this list is. Of course, the locals always know where and when to find bargains, or cheaper places to go out (coffee or beer is cheaper at neighborhood cafes, whereas more popular places and everything in the city centre is more expensive). The rent is crazy high so many people end up paying a quarter or a third of what they earn for rent. Utilities are continuously increasing as well. And I agree, many people get by through additional jobs, summer renting of their places, and a lot of younger people end up moving back to their parents place or are helped financially by them.
#Anonymous on Feb 24, 2014 :
thanks Jack - so it is an issue, right?
#Jack on Feb 19, 2014 :
To answer some questions regarding how they make a living. Most work their butt of in the summer by working 2 or 3 jobs and helping their grandparents on the farm (a great majority own farms).

Also most houses have apartments which are rented out to travelers , which helps pay for various things.
#Anonymous on Feb 13, 2014 :
There is something seriously wrong with Croatia - granted that it's a beautiful country, I don't understand how ordinary people live there.

From what I know salaries are extremely low but pretty much everything costs roughly the same as in neighbouring Italy, Austria or Germany where salaries are 2/3 times higher.
#Anonymous on Feb 13, 2014 :
Zagreb is a city with western European prices and eastern European salaries.
I go there on business a lot and every time I am unpleasantly surprised by how expensive it is and how little local people make..
My Croatian colleagues (who have my same level of seniority) make as little as €800 and the average meal costs around €30..
It's crazy

having said that it's a good place to be and Croatia is a beautiful country. It's a shame thought that Croatians can't fully enjoy it.
#Marijan on Feb 12, 2014 :
Pretty accurate, but basic utilities are cheaper than said here.
#Danijel Frketić on Jan 25, 2014 :
I'm worker from capital of Croatia and my salary it is around 6.000,00 kn but not sure does any existed with pay less then 2.500,00 kn.
#Dom on Jun 22, 2013 :
yeah, pretty much accurate. About the average salary... it is higly unbalanced. Lets say workers have average about 1500kn-6000kn and their bosses have like 12000kn - 17000kn.
#Nurtai on Nov 22, 2012 :
pretty acurate
