Removals to Croatia | Shipping to Croatia | Eastern European Removals

Dolphin Movers are experienced in removals to all parts of Europe, including removals to Croatia for those moving house to take up a job post, to retire, or simply to have a second home so they can relax, unwind and admire Croatia's famously stunning scenery and coastline.

We offer business and/or house moves to Croatia, and it is an increasingly popular place to move to with 900 Britons already living in the country. While many people choose to live and work in the cities on the mainland, others move to one of the many populated islands. Our shipping to Croatia services covers the whole country including Zagreb, Dubrovnik, Split, Zadar, Pula, Osijek, Varazdin, Rijeka and Slavonski Brod.

Croatia joined the EU in the summer of 2013, and, although they haven't signed up for the single currency as yet, it opened up more trade opportunities and people are now able to move more freely from the UK and Croatia for work. As a result, we expect to see rise in removals to and from UK and Croatia.

About Croatia

Zagreb is the capital of Croatia and is also the country's largest city. In addition to the mainland, the country has as many as 1,185 islands and 66 of these are populated. The population of Croatia as a whole was 4.25 million in 2011.

Croatia lies at the crossroads of Central and South Eastern Europe and borders Hungary, Slovenia, Serbia, Montenegro, and Bosnia and Herzegovina. Flights from London to Zagreb take just under two hours. The major airports you can fly into from London are Zagreb, Dubrovnik and Split. The country's largest seaport is Rijeka, followed by Ploce. The biggest passenger ports are Split and Zadar.

Economy

The main industries in Croatia are the tourism sector, electronics, shipbuilding, metal products, chemicals and plastics, building materials, textiles, timber, food processing and drinks.

History

In the first half of the 16th century Croatia became part of the Habsburg Monarchy. It was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire from the later part of the 19th century until just before the end of the World War I. In 1918 the Serbs, Slovenes and Croats joined together to form a Kingdom which later became known as Yugoslavia. It was under communist rule until Croatia gained independence from Yugoslavia in 1991.

Following on from this was the Croatian War of Independence, a bitter battle that the Croatians refer to as the Homeland War which ended in 1995. At the end of 2000, Croatia became a member of the World Trade Organisation (WTO) and it joined the European Union on July 1, 2013.

Attractions and Activities

The walled city of Dubrovnik is one of the most popular attractions, and is staggeringly beautiful with outstanding architecture, fountains, monasteries and plenty of museums to visit.

Another must-see is the stunning Plitvice Lakes which consist of 16 interlinked lakes surrounded by forests. It is amazingly colourful and there are also a wide variety of birds and animals that inhabit the area – and you may even get to spot a European brown bear!

Croatian cuisine is extremely diverse, but some of the things that you will come across are spicy sausage (kulen), shepherds stew (Cobanac) and you will find fresh fish and all sorts of dishes made from figs in the coastal region. In addition to this, Croatian olive oil and olives are regarded as the best in the world.

If you want to burn off all that amazing food, the good news is that there are all sorts of sporting activities to enjoy including sailing and exploring the islands, hiking, rafting, rock climbing, swimming, kayaking and fishing.

Expats in Croatia

If you move here, you will find it easy to get out and about as a number of people speak English, although there are various schools offering Croatian language courses. If you move with children, education is free from the ages of 7 – 15, and university education is free. International schools are few and far between.
