What are some typical ways to socialize, either with local people or with other expatriates? Are there groups or clubs that you can recommend?

Go to a movie, out to eat, or over to a friend's house for dinner. Weekend/holiday trips to the coast, or to a nearby location in central Europe. Croatians also spend hours day and night, summer and winter talking to each other in the coffee shops. - Aug 5, 2014
Cafes. - Jun 16, 2014
In the city, people mostly like to sit around the cafes and drink coffee or beer, and smoke cigarettes. But on the weekend, most expats leave for a weekend trip somewhere. - Feb 18, 2014
Lots of entertaining in homes. There are some bars and clubs, but Zagreb isn't known for its night life. - Jan 25, 2012
It's ok. I am not a party animal, but I think zagreb lacks character. It's definitely not a lively city. - Dec 16, 2011
There is a lot of city life and it is lots of fun. - Oct 16, 2010
If you like to go out, Croats are into hanging out at cafes and just chilling. Pretty laid-back. - Mar 23, 2009
Lively cafe culture among Croats and expats. International Women Club is present and offers some activities. Other poles are the school and the embassy communities. - Mar 2, 2009
