Home > Expat Guides > Europe > Croatia > Zagreb

Hrvatska pošta (Croatian Post) is the national postal service of Croatia.

The cost to mail a letter or package is calculated based on weight. A letter sent to a destination within Croatia costs 3.10 kunas, while a postcard costs 2.80 HRK. Mail sent internationally is more expensive, with letters starting at 7.60 HRK. You can calculate the shipping cost for letters and packages to any destination online.

To mail a letter in Croatia, be sure to address the recipient as follows:

1. title, name and family name of the recipient
2. street and house number, entrance number, floor, apartment number, village, hamlet, etc., or a P.O. box number or Poste Restante address;
3. postal code and name of the place (as a rule, written in capital letters)
4. name or abbreviation of the country for mail items sent abroad

Post Offices

There are numerous post office branches located throughout the country. Post offices are generally open Monday through Saturday during regular working hours, but there are exceptions. Often, post offices on the coast are open later during tourist season.

In Zagreb, there is a post office branch at Branimirova 4 near the main train station that is open every day, including Sundays and holidays, from 7:00 a.m. to midnight. You can search branch locations and hours online.

Drop boxes are also common, especially in larger cities, and are easily identified by their yellow color and Hrvatska pošta symbol.


In addition to offering standard postal services such as mail forwarding, post office boxes, and mail holding, post offices in Croatia also offer a number of financial services. At the post office, you can send and receive money, contract insurance policies, exchange currency, and even pay your utility bills. It's in fact very common among locals to pay household bills at the post office because it's fast and efficient.

Many post offices also sell useful merchandise, such as mobile phones and SIM cards, along with gifts and souvenirs.
