Social Life in Croatia


In Croatia they speak Croatian (Hrvatski). Although learning this language can be a long and uneasy process, knowing the basics should help in having a social life in Croatia. There are four national standards and four dialects often erroneously termed “Serbo-Croatian” by the British, although some native speakers prefer the term as “Bosnian-Croatian-Montenegrin-Serbian”, which encompasses the national standards. The alphabet is Latin.

While English is widely spoken in the coastal resorts, that may not be the case inland. German and Italian are also commonly spoken, along the coastal areas. You will need some basic Croatian – and your efforts will be appreciated. (Thank you – Havla; Please – Molim; Good Morning – Dobro Jutro)

Social Life in Croatia

Social life in Croatia is rather rich and versatile which often comes as a surprise to foreigners. Croats love to socialise and entertain. They are known for being hospitable and friendly.

Most of Croatians live in urban areas (almost ¼ of population lives in Croatia’s capital – Zagreb). In larger cities in Croatia one can find theaters, opera houses, cinemas, art galleries. Croatian people love art and are very proud of their artists such as Antun Augustinčić; Croatian sculptor famous for the Statue of Peace in front of the UN headquarters in New York. Croatians also love to attend concerts. Some of the world renowned musicians are Croatian; Maksim Mrvica, Darko Rundek, 2 Cellos and Bambi molesters are just some of them.

The Croatian are very sporty and are huge sports fans. Sports play an important part in Croatian culture. Whenever a national team is playing in any sport, or Croatian individual sportsmen are competing, you will see people in cafes and squares wholeheartedly cheering for them. Croatia is homeland of many famous sportsmen; Wimbledon winner – Goran Ivanišević, Ski World Cup winner – Janica Kostelić, Real Madrid’s  football player – Luka Modrić.

It is often said that Croatian people are very similar to the Irish when it comes to having fun. They are temperamental, easygoing, they love going out for a drink and relaxing in the company of their closest friends. Croatians are usually very close to their families and like spending time in family circle. They care very much about traditions and take pride in everything that is Croatian.

There are many well-known nightclubs and pubs in Croatia, especially in coastal area where lots of young people from all over the world come to have fun during the summer. Zrće (the beach on the island of Pag) has been listed among top 10 Europe’s partying destinations for years.

In terms of social life, Croatia really has much to offer.
