This may come as a surprise because Zagreb is the biggest city in Croatia, but it’s not the most expensive. Even thought rent is the most expensive in Zagreb, groceries are more expensive in Rijeka, for example, and the meal prices in restaurants are more expensive in Split.

The most expensive things when living in Zagreb are the utilities, which are among the highest in Europe (around €100-200) and transportation (monthly tram pass costs a little under €50).

Below is a table with some data about the living expenses in Zagreb.
