Sunday Times Features Hvar as 1 of 3 Digital Nomad WFA European Destinations

January 8, 2023 - More good news for Croatia's attempts to attract the remote work sector, as the Sunday Times promotes Hvar in its top three WFA (Work from Anywhere) destinations.  It seems so long ago, May 2019. That was when I met a Russian and Ukrainian couple wanting to rent our apartment for 3 months the following year, from April 1 - June 30. They were doing something called remote work 10 months a year, with two in the office in Munich. Three months each year in Jelsa, then to Italy, then to Spain, then to Portugal at home. …

Croatia Tops Nomad List 2023 Survey as 'Most-Liked Country'

December 29, 2022 - Croatia continues to develop its digital nomad credentials with another strong showing on the Nomad List 2023 survey. It is 3.5 years since I started writing about the digital nomad opportunity, and it has been a fascinating ride, full of adventure, characters, and positivity, as well as proof that Croatian bureaucracy can work at lightning speed at times. The introduction of the Croatian digital nomad permit on January 1 last year was the quickest change in legislation I can recall in my 20 years in this country.   So where does Croatia stand some 3.5 years later?…

Zagreb Very Merry Wraps Up Digital Nomad Life for 2022

December 22, 2022 - As Zagreb continues to attract more and more digital nomads, the Zagreb Digital Nomad Very Merry event celebrates and closes another successful year. It is easy to forget that 2.5 years ago, few people in Croatia had heard of the term 'digital nomad', let alone understood how the future of work was about to change. Now everywhere Croatian baka with a room to rent is familiar with the concept of 'digitalni nomadi', a new source of potential tourism information.  The nomads who were coming to Croatia were generally heading to the coast, to destinations such as…

Slomadism Split: Join the Laidback Mediterranean Lifestyle

September 10, 2022 - Split in September just got better; a chance to network on the beach and enjoy the laidback Mediterranean lifestyle. Meet Slomadism.   I have been writing about the digital nomad opportunity in Croatia for over 3 years now, and I am learning certain truths about the scene here.  One is that if Saltwater Nomads is organising the event, there will be no compromise on quality, innovation, or a stellar lineup of speakers and activities.  Full disclosure, I have very good knowledge about the work of Tanja Polegubic and Saltwater Nomads, as TCN partnered with Saltwater Nomads (and…

NordLayer: Croatia High Up on Global Digital Nomad List

August the 2nd, 2022 - NordLayer's Global Remote Work Index (GRWI) has produced a global ranking of the best countries for remote work. The American cyber security company has ranked Croatia 22nd out of a total of 66 countries, thanks to its high level of security, openness, quality of life, knowledge of the English language and tourism development. As Poslovni Dnevnik/Marija Crnjak writes, on top of all of the above, the Republic of Croatia has numerous advantages compared to first-ranked Germany or indeed the Netherlands, which have a higher cost of living, and in terms of cyber security, Croatia is…

2-Year Montenegro Digital Nomad Visa Announced by Jan de Jong

August 1, 2022 - The Montenegro Digital Nomad Visa has become a reality, announced President of the Digital Nomad Association Croatia, Jan de Jong. Goog things come to those who wait... Nine months ago, TCN reported that a Montenegro digital nomad visa would be introduced in early 2022, with the President of Digital Nomad Association Croatia, Jan de Jong, one of the instigators.  De Jong,  whose LinkedIn letter to Croatian Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic was the catalyst to Croatia's digital nomad permit last year, has been an avid promoter of the digital nomad movement, and he had some good news…

Impact Hub Reopens in Famous Central Zagreb Film Location

July 17, 2022 - A superb addition to the Croatian co-working scene, as Croatia's first-ever cowork, Impact Hub Zagreb back in 2013, reopens in a fantastic location much loved by Croatian film lovers.  One of the things I have learned in my time in Croatia is just to go with the flow. Attending events these days always leads to an interesting conversation or two, and so it proved with the recent G2 diaspora conference, DiWine Summer. Among the many participants in an international gathering of 16 nationalities was the happiest Mexican I know in Croatia - Hermes Arriaga, co-founder of…

Zagreb Fastest Growing Remote Work Hub in Europe: NomadList 2022

July 3, 2022 - Zagreb's nomad credentials are enhanced once more, as the NomadList 2022 survey names the Croatian capital as the fastest-growing remote work hub in Europe over the last 5 years.  Good things are happening in Zagreb, a city which is changing immensely and becoming seriously cool.  I used to think that Zagreb was a pretty dull place (and 15 years ago, it certainly was less interesting than today), but the last decade has seen the Croatian capital transformed into one of the truly fab places under the radar in European tourism. But that discovery has started. Having…

NomadList 2022: Croatia #1 in Europe, Zagreb, Split, Hvar, Zadar, Dubrovnik in Top 10s

July 3, 2022 - The NomadList 2022 State of Digital Nomads report is out - and there is lots of good news for Croatia. It is hard to imagine that a little over 2 years ago, the term 'digital nomad' was almost unheard of in Croatia. An open letter to the Prime Minister from a Dutch entrepreneur in Split asking for a digital nomad visa changed all that, setting in motion a chain of events where the term 'digitalni nomadi' is now a widely recognised term in the Croatian language by the majority of the population.  And the nomads are…

Zadar Digital Nomad Week Diary: The Final Days

June 22, 2022 - In the blink of an eye, the exciting Zadar Digital Nomad Week program came to a close with more keynotes and a call to nature. A look at the last two days of a great week that has helped highlight Zadar's magic in attracting digital nomads. If you ask me, I would have thought that there was still one more week left of the Zadar Digital Nomad Week. Although six days loaded with various activities, workshops, panels, and keynotes have passed, I felt that there was more. And surely there is. I hope this doesn't sound like…
