A couple of the most recent reviews talked about morale at the Embassy being not so good. I don't really know what these folks were referring to because from my perspective morale has gotten much better, which I attribute to the Embassy's new management team. The Ambassador arrived in late 2012, and the new DCM and other senior officers in summer 2013. I thought morale was quite good when I left in July 2014. It is true that Embassy Zagreb is not necessarily as cohesive a community as other embassies at which I have served, and if your idea of a Post with good morale involves lots of parties at the Marine House and other well-attended community events, then Zagreb may not be the place for you. But, I would argue that this has more to do with the place than morale per se. Croatia is a beautiful, safe country that allows people to make friends outside of the embassy community and to get out and explore rather than live, work, and play with the same group of people from Post all of the time. That seems to me to be a good thing rather than a sign of poor morale. - Aug 5, 2014
This is a very relaxing place to live with lots to do and see. I highly recommend the post and I have been to some other really nice places. - Jun 16, 2014
This is definitely not a place for someone who enjoys food. It's really bad in that sense. But good luck! - Dec 16, 2011
Zagreb has become one of the best places that I have ever lived in or visited and I hope that your experience in Zagreb will be as great as mine! - Oct 16, 2010
If you're choosing a place based on ease of living, Zagreb is a good choice. It's modern, it's clean, it's safe. Culture is similar to American--there are no shockers when you get here. - Mar 23, 2009
