This Croatian quiz will let you know how well you know the Croatian culture and mentality.

There are 15 multiple choice questions which cover everyday situations. You can choose one of three answers. At the end of the quiz, you'll know which type of Croat you are.

This will tell you how...:

  • well you fit into the Croatian lifestyle
  • successful you are in getting things done in Croatia
  • important your family and friends are to you
  • important your professional life is to you
  • socially accepted you feel in Croatia
  • savvy you are at solving problems in everyday life
  • stressful Croatian everyday life is to you

And this is not all.

With each score, you get a description of your type. And a few useful guidelines on how to best use your unique skills to improve your life in Croatia.

You also get a nice badge that you can share with your friends on the social media.

So let's dig in!

Please take the results of the quiz with a pinch of salt. The point is to have fun and learn as much as possible about the Croatian everyday life and our worldviews. 

Why you should take this quiz

You can take the quiz even if you are living in Croatia and you believe you know all the ins and outs of the local life. The chances are some of you may feel out of sorts. You may be wondering why you don't fit in. Or why you constantly feel like you don't belong. 

Did you know that you can actually be a bit of an outcast even in your own country? 

Similarly, some people may feel more 'Croatian' even if they don't have a Croatian bone in their body. 

According to some research, we can are born to feel at home in some countries and not others. And this is totally random. Our true home may not be the country in which we are born. 

So, if you are still not sure if you should take the quiz or not... well, why shouldn't you. It's fun.

  • Found the test interesting. Enjoyed taking it.
    Love Croatia and the Croation people. Had the privilege of visiting there to find relatives.
    There is a strong presence of Croats here in America.

    • Thanks, Rosemary. I am glad you enjoyed the quiz. Yes, I know there are many Croats in the US. It’s a great thing to be able to connect like this online.

  • I got Pure Croat.

    I kind of expected it, as I live my entire life not caring about the stressful things in life, I am cynical of sheepish things people do (like waiting in line for anything), I never vote, and I am also a proud subscriber to cronyism (only friends and only family for everything).

    Pretty accurate description of a Croat in one sentence.

  • I am the one with the twist, croatian born and raised, married to a Dutch, past 16 years lived and worked in Western Europe.
    Funny enough my Dutch husband is pure Croat! Thanks to my good influence!!!

  • Even though I was very suspicious, I think the test is not bad. At least in my case it reflected the correct feeling of how I feel in Croatia. I grew up abroad, I am Croat, I lived in various countries, however, never felt more a stranger than “at home” in Croatia. Nonetheless, I still love Croatia! πŸ™‚

  • Did the test twice. No score as such shown but says I’m ‘Out of place’ in Croatia with a summary. Oh hum! I still love the country and its people even though I’ve only been to Zagreb once (last December) and before that was waaay back in 1979 on my first honeymoon!


  • Dear Andrea,

    Thank you for your wonderful blog! I’m from Bulgaria and I’m preparing for my first trip to Zagreb in November. πŸ™‚

    I just wanted to share with you that I took the test to see how much I resemble Croats. Since I didn’t know what to answer I decided to pick the options that the average Bulgarian would choose. You can’t believe what I got! It’s “Pure Croat”, LOL! I didn’t expect we were so similar. πŸ˜€

    I loved your articles about saying thank you, Croation coffee habits and the Zagreb weather – in Bulgaria we have the exact same habits, beliefs and superstitions. Now I feel prepared to visit your country. πŸ™‚

    Keep up the good work and all the best! πŸ™‚

    • Hi Hristina – wow, this is really interesting. I’m glad my quiz helped you get prepared for Croatia. I travelled in Bulgaria several times and I think it’s a fair assessment that we are quite similar πŸ™‚

  • Of course I’m lost in Hrvatska – I was in Dalmatia the whole time ;P

    Using the word “displaced” was perfect – many of us from migrant / cross-cultural backgrounds are home everywhere and nowhere. Lucky we’re adaptable lil’ f**kers <3

  • Hi Andrea
    First I answered as me and was lost in Croatia, then I took the test again and thought of my Croatian friends whilst I answered, now I get Croat with a twist. Perfect, that describes exactly how I have felt in your wonderful country. I find Croatia welcoming, respectful, full of life and energy. Your offering this test has just added a little to my understanding of why I feel that way when I visit.
    Thank You

  • I’m a Croatian but I got “Lost in Croatia” , well that is …. :/
    Actually I think that this quiz was stereotypical but it was funny

  • Honestly so stereotypical
    But mostly 99% true at the same time
    I’m from Zagreb
    So I took the quiz out of curiosity if I would get some silly answer
    But I got a pure croat
    So i guess it’s not that wrong
    I really like your blog and it is nice to see that people enjoy our country πŸ™‚

  • I am lost in Croatia. I must be shown the way by a local. I guess I am more Canadian than Croatia……for now.

  • I took the quiz. Pure Croat. Never knew how deep the heredity passed from generation to generation. I am curious if my kids took it how they would fair. Fun at the very least but it explains a lot about me.
