Nomadbase, 1st Business & Travel Digital Nomad Club Chooses Croatia in May

February 1, 2022 - A major boost for Croatia's emerging digital nomad story, as Nomadbase announces Croatia for its next event. My inbox is a weird and wonderful place, full of people pitching ideas, sending abuse, and generally complaining about articles written by an opinionated foreigner. But few emails have given me as much pleasure in recent times as a recent one from our dear Zagreb Digital Nomad Ambassador for December, Anna Maria Kochanska, who continues her ambassadorial duties long after leaving Croatia. Anna Maria's email was to introduce the owner of the first digital nomad business and travel club,…

Cohesion, Unity & Planning at Croatian Digital Nomad Reflection Day 2022

January 31, 2022 - The first Croatian digital nomad reflection day took place last week, as stakeholders from the public and private sector came together to reflect on the success of 2021 and share plans for 2022.  When Croatia works, it really works beautifully. And there has been no better example of that than the nascent digital nomad sector which had a huge impact globally, as the Croatian nomad story went all over the world. The introduction of the digital nomad permit on January 1, 2021 was a global story, and award-winning events such as Zagreb Digital Nomad Wee and…

New Campaign: Digital Nomads in Pazin Desired to Extend Season

January 31, 2022 - The Central Istria Tourist Board director has revealed that digital nomads in Pazin are the best way to extend the season, with many renters showing interest in advertising their accommodations.  Villas with swimming pools or holiday homes in central Istria have been a hit for years now. However, Croatia's largest peninsula wants to bring their popular accommodations closer to digital nomads, reports Jutarnji List. Following the example of larger Croatian cities, the Central Istria Tourist Board recently launched the campaign "Live and work in Central Istria," which wants to attract digital nomads to Pazin and its…

Inside Zadar Valley, Croatia's First 'Digital Nomad Village'

January 2, 2022 - It was hailed as the first 'Croatian digital nomad village' when it opened in October last year, but little has been heard about it since. A visit to Zadar Valley in mid-December.   2021 was a phenomenal year for Croatia's digital nomad story. The year kicked off with the introduction of the digital nomad permit, one of the first in the world, on January 1. It was a permit which received global attention and was recently named the best in the world.   Innovative programmes such as the award-winning Dubrovnik Digital Nomads-in-Residence and Zagreb Digital Nomad Week &…

Building Community: Dean Kuchel's 3rd Zagreb Visit in 2022 on Christmas Day

December 28, 2021 - Zagreb is a 365-day nomad city, as the Croatian capital's favourite Israeli nomad Dean Kuchel found out on his latest building community mission. The thing about digital nomads, I am learning, is that they seem to think the whole world exists on their schedules, and that we can all adapt. "Paul, I am coming back to Zagreb for the third time. I love that city. So let's meet." "Fantastic. It will be great to see you, but I also want to talk to you more about CROMADS and how we get some of your community of…

7 Ambassadors, 6 Months, 1 Great Digital Nomad Destination: Zagreb

December 30, 2021 - As Zagreb continues its journey to become a great digital nomad destination, a collection of thoughts from its 7 digital nomad ambassadors. They say that all good things come to an end, but I have a feeling that things are only just beginning as we close the Zagreb Digital Nomad Week & Ambassador program, which has been an unqualified success.  Just a few months ago, Zagreb was not really on the nomad radar at all, but that has changed considerably, with the Croatian capital even making the top 5 most-liked cities in the world in the…

Steve Tsentserensky on Zagreb Ambassador Digital Nomad Life in December

December 28, 2021 - Zagreb Digital Nomad Special Guest Ambassador Steve Tsentserensky reflects on life in the Croatian capital in December. If there is a bigger fan of Zagreb, I have yet to meet that person.  Of all the digital nomads who have spent time in the Croatian capital this year (and there have been many), few have been as visible as Steve Tsentserensky from Cleveland, Ohio. One of the first recipients of the Croatian digital nomad permit back in March, Steve has been very active travelling around the country, but all roads ultimately lead back to his true Croatian…

Zagreb Digital Nomad December Ambassadors Interviewed by Index.hr (VIDEO)

December 21, 2021 - Zagreb Digital Nomad December Ambassadors Anna Maria Kochanska from Poland and Steve Tsentserensky from USA interviewed in the Index.hr studio.  It has been quite a year for Zagreb and its digital nomad journey.  It is 18 months since Dutch entrepreneur Jan de Jong wrote an open letter to Croatian Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic asking him to implement a digital nomad visa.  Things moved very quickly after that. Plenkovic announced his intention to introduce the visa some 44 days later, and it came into effect on January 1 this year. A variety of high-profile events, including the…

How Will Digital Nomads Spend Christmas Holidays in Croatia?

December 20, 2021 - As the festive family holidays approach, will it be a lonely one for digital nomads? Not in Croatia - a look at how nomads spend Christmas holidays in Croatia.  When I did my last major trip back in 2001, I hardly met anyone on the road in 9 months, apart from the many people who hosted me on the road. I spent a lot of time alone, which is fine as I really like my own company.  Often I would arrive at a destination, spend 2-3 days there, look around and not speak to anyone apart…

Global Nomad Guide: Croatia has Best Digital Nomad 'Visa'

December 18, 2021 - More good PR for Croatia's digital nomad story, as the Global Nomad Guide ranks the Croatian digital nomad permit as the best 'visa' currently on offer for nomads.  It is far from perfect, and there have been many suggestions on how to improve it, but it seems that Croatia is doing something right with its recently introduced digital nomad permit, according to a recent analysis on available visas by Global Nomad Guide.  With an expert score of 7.4, Croatia's 'visa' was judged to currently be the best on offer. Also encouraging with the pros and cons,…
