Croatians are so addicted to their cellphones that you might wonder if fixed lines exist. They do. (Find out more about using a mobile phone in Croatia.)

Calling to Croatia

Croatia's country code is 385 so first you dial your international operator and then you dial 385. Then you dial the regional area code (for example 01 for Zagreb, 020 for Dubrovnik and Korcula, 021 for Split) but you eliminate the zero when calling from abroad. Then continue with the number which is usually six or seven digits. Use the zero when calling from one region to another.In phone numbers quoted on Croatia Traveller I have included the regional code. Remember the Croatia time zone! (plus six hours from New York, plus one hour from London). See a list of all

Calling from Croatia

Most travellers now use Skype, WhatsApp or another VOIP plan to make international calls. Check your roaming plan. Note that any roaming plan from a European network includes Croatia at no extra charge. Until 2021 UK travellers were still able to avoid roaming charges from their UK cellphone but that is no longer the case. Check with your carrier before leaving and, if necessary, pay for a roaming plan that allows you to call locally within Croatia.

Another possibility for making phone calls in Croatia is to head to the nearest post office. Most post offices have telephone booths you can use without using a card. Tell the clerk at the counter you wish to make a phone call and they will direct you to the booth and open the line. You pay for the call afterwards.
