VENTURE INTO A CALMER PACE OF
LIFE – but with FAST Wifi (OBV!)
Zadar is scenic and very walkable. Like most of Croatia, the strong cafe culture is everywhere in the city. Start your morning sipping on coffee with locals and your laptop, or choose to work from your apartment or one of the city’s coworking spaces. When the weekend comes, the nature parks beckon. Choose from hiking trails and climbing in Paklenica, birdwatching on Vrana Lake or set sail for the Kornati Islands and experience this unique archipelago. Or, simply head to the closest beach for a swim or stroll. Any day of the week!
We know you need to be productive. Zadar has all the ingredients.
Zadar and the region have a range of options for you to get to work as soon as you arrive. (And in between all the fun stuff). Whether you prefer to work from your apartment, or mix it up with a morning coffee as you read your emails for the day in the sunshine, there are coworking spaces and cafes to help you – as well as a growing number of events and initiatives for the remote work lifestyle.
Zadar Coworking Spaces
Zadar has two fully equipped coworking spaces. COIN opened in 2015. And Code Hub, part of Interreg CBA’s network with Mostar, Tuzla, and Niškić.
Working From Cafes
There are over 100 cafes listed on Google Maps in Zadar. We recommend finding one with outdoor seating if you’re a non-smoker.
And…Opening late 2022
Zadar’s New Innovation Centre is set to open in 2022. The location is 4km from the Zadar Peninsula and will have over 30 seats, 3 meeting rooms and conference halls.
Coworking in Biograd

Work From Zadar
Zadar’s technology eco-system is growing. Throughout the year, there are a number of workshops hosted at coworking spaces and in collaboration with other cities in Croatia and the region. If you’re looking for the ideal blend of lifestyle in the Mediterranean, with productivity and a growing social and business scene – Zadar and the region welcomes you.
DIGITAL NOMAD EXPERIENCES
around the world. I really believe Zadar is a must-see when you are in Croatia.

I spent a few weeks getting to know Zadar in June 2021 with my husband Sam. We found so much to see and do here, all of which easily fitted around my writing assignments. The whole place has a super chilled vibe, especially around the cliff beaches to the south of the city where we spent many an afternoon. You haven’t been to Zadar until you’ve seen 70-year-old men swan dive off cliffs!
Something we also loved about the city was its attention to produce. As a food and wine writer, this is such an important part of my life and I was delighted to be able to make use of the huge market in the city center and enjoy the wine culture that surrounds the city. It doesn’t hurt when your apartment host’s mother brings you freshly picked cherries from her garden either…
Sam and I are happy to be part of the movement Croatia is enjoying right now, to position itself as an ideal destination for digital nomads. We returned twice in 2021 and are looking to return again in 2022. Zadar included.
We’ve made lifelong friends and connections in Croatia – in fact, it’s probably the place where we found this easiest to do. We were never bored, and never lonely.
We sold everything we own – house and business included – to travel the world and yet spent 5 months in Croatia last year. That says something about the country. If you decide to visit, Zadar should definitely be a part of your itinerary.
We’re open to connecting should you have any questions.

I unabashedly love Croatia. While I’ve been based in various cities, I made it a point to explore as much of the country as possible and Zadar was an absolute highlight. Love at first sight. Couple the joy of the city with easy access to some stunning nature and add in the convenience of the digital nomad permit and the growth is inevitable. I can definitely see Zadar starting to get on the radar for people.
