Croatia is the youngest and one of the most promising members of the European Union. Its attractiveness is due not only to its unique nature, but also to its history. For several millennia, representatives of ancient civilizations and many cultures have left their mark here. Most of the monuments are carefully protected by the state, and some are UNESCO cultural heritage sites.

The large length of the sea coast, over 1700 km, and taking into account the coastline of the islands, over 5000 km, created excellent opportunities for organizing a beach holiday. It is also worth noting that Croatia has a large number of thermal springs, and, in addition, the only unique healing oil field in Europe - naftalan. The clinic of the same name is rightfully considered one of the best in the world for the treatment of skin diseases. All this makes the country attractive for both tourism and immigration.
Types of employment in Croatia: Seasonal, Permanent, Freelance, Own business.
If you decide to combine leisure and work, then this option is perfect for you. As in the entire Adriatic coast, the main period for seasonal work is the summer months, but taking into account all the approval and registration procedures, it is worth looking for a job much earlier. As a rule, at the end of the year, the Croatian government forms a list of quotas, therefore, starting from December, you can start negotiations with your future employer. Despite the fact that almost a quarter of the total number of quotas is allocated for the tourism industry, finding a job as a waiter or a maid, for immigrants from the countries of the former USSR, will be very problematic. First, because under local law, the employer will be required to justify your superiority over local candidates; secondly, many people from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Slovakia and the Czech Republic, Hungary come here in search of work for the summer period. Taking into account that these countries, besides BiH, are located in the European Union, it will be much easier for them to obtain a work visa (radnadozvola). For neighbors from BiH, the procedure for obtaining a work permit has been greatly simplified. In general, the competition will be quite strong. In addition, local employers do not particularly like jogging and paperwork associated with your employment, and they will have to do this.
However, if you prove your attractiveness by knowing several languages, especially German and Italian, and, of course, Croatian, or by winning professional competitions, for example, for the title of the best bartender in the world ("DiageoReserveWorldClass"), you have every chance.
It is much easier to search for vacancies in the entertainment industry. The most popular seasonal vacancies in Croatia for our compatriots:
Do not forget about the vacancies that appear in the Russian-speaking community through social networks. Most of them arise in the summer, when children are sent to the sea with their mothers and grandmothers:

The Slavic Croatian tribes that settled in the country in the 6th century gave the name to the state. Of course, first of all, people go to the country for a beach holiday, since there are magnificent sea resorts on the Adriatic coast. Pebble beaches are located under the shade of century-old pine trees, which save you from the scorching sun better than any umbrellas. Several resort towns are located on the picturesque Istrian peninsula - Porec, known for its stunning promenade, Umag, which conquers with a variety of sports recreation, and Rovinj, Croatian Venice with medieval paving stones and unique architectural monuments.

The country is famous for its wine, among which prosek, a dessert drink with a high content of fruit sugar, is especially popular.

Business and tourist trips around the world are gradually becoming an integral part of the life of an increasing number of CIS residents. However, sometimes it is not enough to have only financial capabilities and desire to travel abroad. To enter many foreign countries, a special permit is required - a visa. An entry permit should be obtained from the diplomatic missions of the country of visit located outside its borders. According to the same rules, a visa to Croatia is issued.
If you are planning a trip abroad, in most cases you will need to open a visa. The first visas appeared in Europe about two hundred years ago. As you know, at all times, most states were interested in only law-abiding and loyal foreigners on their territory. In addition, the standard of living in different countries differs markedly, therefore, residents of more prosperous states do not really want to see people from problem countries who do not contribute to higher wages in their countries. In addition, many foreigners bring with them mentality and culture alien to the inhabitants of developed countries.
On the other hand, the modern world is very mobile and needs free movement of goods, finance and labor. They solve this problem as follows: with prosperous countries, bilateral or multilateral agreements are concluded on the introduction of a simplified visa procedure or its complete abolition, and when it comes to problem countries, the process of obtaining visas, on the contrary, becomes more complicated. Entry rules for citizens from such states are the most stringent: the applicant will have to go through many checks and confirm his loyalty, financial viability and lack of desire to stay in the country of visit for a long time.
The Russian Federation follows global trends and seeks to facilitate the movement of its citizens around the world by concluding international treaties of varying depth in the visa area. As a result, Russians can now visit 116 countries and territories without a visa.
The closest contacts have been established with Belarus. In Russia, a visa for Belarusians is not just not needed - they can freely find jobs for most of the positions. In turn, Russians have the same rights in Belarus.
The Russian Federation has established and operates a visa-free regime with most of the countries of the former USSR, but visa rules are often stricter there. For citizens of Kazakhstan and other CIS countries, a visa is not required to enter Russia, however, such trips are allowed only for tourism purposes and to visit friends and relatives. Employment is carried out under special permits.
The Schengen Agreement is widely known among the European visa unions. This agreement was signed in 1995 by a number of European states. According to the agreement reached, residents of the signatory countries of the agreement can not only move freely through the territory of other participating countries, but also live and work freely. The states also pursue a joint visa policy: a visa issued by one of the Schengen countries allows you to visit other countries of the agreement. That is why it is not only prestigious, but also very convenient to get a visa to one of the countries included in the Schengen zone.
In 1999, the Schengen Agreement replaced the Schengen legislation of the European Union, but the term is still widely used.
Currently, the Schengen area includes 26 states. Most of them are members of the European Union, while some countries are not. At the same time, individual EU countries, on the contrary, do not belong to the Schengen area.
Many people learn about the existence of this country during their school years in geography lessons. For many, it remains one of the large number of countries in the world. However, it is worth at least once to see photos with fantastic landscapes of Croatia and the opinion about this country will change dramatically.
Places like Croatia can be counted on one hand. The Alps and the Mediterranean are found in this country. And the Adriatic coast, located between the sea and the Biokovo mountain range, is striking in its beauty. Sea urchins living in the sea off the coast of Croatia are an unmistakable indicator of the purity of bright turquoise water. Considering that the country has always lived thanks to tourism, it is very difficult to find industrial enterprises here. Everything is filled with the smell of herbs and fabulous nature.
The peculiarity of this country lies in the fact that each of its islands is unique in its own way, and on each of them you can find unique sights of the country. By the way, on many islands car traffic is prohibited in order to preserve their ecology. And the Croats themselves prefer to rest on the islands, leaving the seaside resorts for tourists.
The country is very rich in natural attractions that are protected by the state. Among them are the well-known Plitvice Lakes. This is an unforgettable place, consisting of 16 lakes and 92 magnificent waterfalls. The canyons of Paklenica National Park are also worth visiting.
The city will be a pleasant discovery for lovers of historical places. read in full
