Where in Zagreb you can get Coke/Pepsi (0.33 liter bottle) for 15.49 kn in a restaurant? And they say from 10 to 20 kn LOL for a cola in a restaurant?? I have never seen int lower than 20kn for 0,25l. The lowest you can get is 18kn in a low range restaurant ... Who on earth are "4095 entries in the past 12 months by 407 different contributors", Do they live in some parallel Zagreb?

Born and raised in Zagreb. The landlords that rent out overpriced "luxury" places in the city centre are scammers. After 2 earthquakes those "luxury" places really showed their colours- they are falling apart and no one is renovating them at all, so not only would you be paying thousands of kunas for a cupboard sized apartment, but you would also be risking your life as some are older than 2 centuries.

Don't come here unless you can afford the podsljeme zone really.

How is 1500 Euro/month in Zagreb? Is it possible to say 600 Euros/month?
