To the big banks of Croatia, working on the market for a dozen years, we can be attributed to these banks as, for example: Banca Popolare Croatia, OTP banka Hrvatska, Raiffeisen bank Austria, Sberbank, Societe Generale-Splitska banka Zagrebačka banka.

Almost every Bank in Croatia has a website in English. The information is provided available and describes in detail all the main conditions of cooperation with clients. Almost all the non-resident can open “an account for non-resident”, with the only condition that such customer will demand registration at any address in Croatia. Confirmation of temporary residence permits is mandatory. Without this account it is impossible to open even a residence.
