Croatia
 
Are there any Brits in Croatia? I am thinking of moving from Hungary to Croatia and it would be good to hear from any expats who are already in Croatia, especially Zagreb or inland locations rather than at the coast.

Re: Croatia
 
Home office's estimates say that some 40 , up to max. 60 known Brits live in Croatia/Hrvatska ;
N.B. Anyone but the below-age of 20 Croats are still openly suspicious or even-anti British ,
partly 'cause what their long-indoctrinated perceptions dictate
( rightly ?? or mostly Wrongly ! )
as GB's rule the Balkans' wars ,
partly 'cause huuuuge ignorance in their insularity and their common admiration for ONLY all things German ,
partly also : poisonous Jealousy + critisms where it often is not due , again , from 20-odd years of anti-UK propaganda in all public ( read : Gov't controlled ) media .
Although the Brits I know of there all claim that they love their new lives , I also know that virtually all of the position to keep a property in U.K. or somewhere outside CRO , also : they travel abroad , to shop and keep sane
( a little ! ) more than most of us , in NW EUrope...

Re: Croatia
 
What perceptions would those be? That the UK (at least at the start of the 90s) colluded with those attacking Croatia (namely the Serbs). The Tory government very much did and many of its members had business interests in Serbia. Some of those perceptions are valid, but you're right re appreciation of all things German.
