In this guide I will list the best mobile plans in Croatia that you can get. But first decide if you really need one at all, because if you are an EU citizen, roaming shouldn't be an issue, and keeping your original number is more than fine. Still, the majority of employers will expect you to have a Croatian number. So at least not to decrease your chances to find a job in Croatia, you better get one soon as you decide to stay in Croatia for a longer period of time.
It is possible to buy a SIM card at some airports but you can expect higher prices or even difficulties to find a shop that sells it, so it is certainly better to buy it directly from the mobile provider stores or many other places around the town, more on that later. Depending on your residence or visa status, you may need to have your passport to buy one.
If you want to be connected all the time, the best solution is to buy a Europen prepaid SIM card online.
