Most of the postal services in Croatia are performed by national postal operator Hrvatska pošta (Croatian Post). Its offices are scattered all over Croatia and you can easily recognize them by their bright yellow branding. Logo of Hrvatska pošta is based, as many other postal logos in the world, on traditional post horn.

Postal codes in Croatia explained

Postal codes consist of five digits. First two digits correspond to area phone code, while the other three digits designate the post office itself. E. g.:

21000 Split - This is a complete postal code.

--> 21 - These are leading digits, determined by location (county).

--> 000 - Postal office code, determined by location in the county.

Split's area phone code is 021 (+385 21 when calling from abroad). As you can see, when you remove the leading zero from the phone code, you get "21", which is the same number as two leading digits in postal code.

The whole county shares the same leading digits, in this case County of Split-Dalmatia has "21" as leading digits. Other three digits are different for each postal office. County seats have three zeros as postal office code (e. g. 10000 Zagreb, 20000 Dubrovnik and 52000 Pazin), while the other places in the county use different numbers (e. g. 20260 Korčula and 52210 Rovinj).

Post offices in Croatia

There are more than 1000 post offices of Hrvatska pošta in Croatia. You can find them in almost every town and city, even in most of the smaller places along the coast. If you just need to send a letter or postcard, you can use postboxes as well. They are usually located next to the post and/or in busy locations.

Postboxes / Mailboxes in Croatia

Postboxes are easily noticeable due to their bright yellow color. They have a square shape and are usually attached to the wall. Postboxes are usually emptied after 16 o'clock. Mail from postboxes is not collected on Sundays and holidays.

Where to buy stamps

If you need to buy a stamp, you don't need to go to the post office. One can easily buy them at most of the newsstands and the price is the same as when you buy them in a post office, but it is usually quicker to buy them at a newsstand.

Shipment prices

When you are buying stamps, it is important to mention where you intend to send your postcard/letter - in Croatia or abroad. Domestic shipments are cheaper and cost 2,80 HRK for postcards and 3,10 HRK for letters (up to 50 g), while international shipments cost 4,60 HRK for postcards and 7,60 HRK for letters (up to 50 g). For detailed calculation, visit interactive calculator of Hrvatska pošta.

Post offices' working hours

Post offices are usually opened from 07:00 to 20:00 on working days and from 08:00 to 13:00 on Saturdays. Offices are closed on Sundays and holidays, and some of them don't work on Saturdays either. During high-season, some of post offices work slightly longer. You can check working hours for each post office in Croatia here.
