Croatia’s capital city, Zagreb, is the country’s largest city with a population of around 800,000 people.
It’s even cheaper than Split and the cost of living is estimated to be 15 percent lower than the coastal city.
Both cities have an extremely low crime rate, making them safe places for Britons looking for a quiet retirement.
Budget flights to Croatia are available from most major airports in the UK which means retirees will be able to visit family at home easily.
