Telephones
The international dialing code for Croatia is 385. Cities in Croatia have area codes. The initial "0" in an area code is to be omitted when calling from abroad (for example to call Zagreb, having area code 01, one would dial +3851...). To make a call in Croatia one dials the area code followed by the phone number. Phone numbers beginning with 06 are special tariff numbers (information etc.) and numbers beginning with 09 belong to cellular phones. Most public telephones use telephone cards that can be bought in post offices or newsstands. Hotels charge much higher telephone rates.
Mobile phones in Croatia
Croatia uses a GSM system compatible with the rest of Europe but not with the USA GSM system. Receiving international calls (roaming) can be quite expensive. A Croatian prepaid GSM phone card can be easily bought, providing cheaper calls.
