Mobile telephony

Croatia is well-covered with mobile networks and you will be able to communicate easily in huge majority of its territory. There are five mobile operators, three of which are full-service carriers, while the other two are virtual operators.

Roaming charges in Croatia went down significantly since accession to the EU in July 2013. Prices for tourists from EU/EEA countries are now capped by European Union, which means they are a few times lower than they used to be.

If you plan to stay longer and want to buy a Croatian mobile phone number (SIM card), you can do it in thousands of stores - from operators' and their partners' stores, to technical equipment shops, supermarkets and newsstands.

Topping-up an account is even easier, since vouchers can be bought almost everywhere. Find out how to top-up Croatian mobile phone account.

Fixed Telephony

If you will need a landline, you shouldn't have a problem with locating one. Most of the households own a fixed-line phone and many hosts won't mind you to use it if you're staying in their property. Of course, one expects you to compensate the cost, especially if you dial a number abroad. If you need to call a number inside of Croatia, some hosts might not charge you anything, since most of the fixed-line packages now have flat-packages, that include a certain (or even 'unlimited') number of free minutes.

Calling a Croatian number

Free wi-fi in Croatia

In recent years, Croatia got many free public hotspots. Hundreds of public locations in Croatia, especially along the coast, are covered by wireless signal that can be used by anyone for free. Those are mostly central locations, e. g. important squares, that can be quite crowded during the season, so don't be surprised if the connection is somewhat sluggish in high-season.
