What is your housing like? What are typical housing sizes, locations, and commute times for expatriates?

There seems to be two major locations: one at the western part of the city (preko Morae) and one towards the east (Gorica). The former has the advantage of being close to the embassy (5-10 minute walk), while for the latter you need a car (cca. 20 minutes). I've mostly seen apartments, but also a few houses at the eastern part. The west is the newer part of the city, close to Capital Plaza, while the east is mainly an residential area, not too far from the old city. Our place is next to Djeji park, great flat with more space than we need, two terraces, new building and helpful maintenance. And the embassy is like two blocks away. It takes about 20 minutes walk to get to the center across the river. - Jul 2020

Houses and apartments. If you get an apartment, you are in walking distance to the embassy. If a house, it is about a 10-minute drive tops. The city is very small, and you can get from one side to the other in 10 minutes or less. - Aug 2010
