Stari Grad Tech Tips – making your travels easier
We both have our smartphones that we brought from the states. We were with AT&T, and we owned the phones outright, so we went to their unlocking site, You can find it HERE.
So far, Croatia is the easiest place to get a SIM card for travelers. There are a few carriers, and you can grab a card at any news stand - called a TISAK - which is located in a little outbuilding in the parking lot of the Tommy supermarket directly to the right of the bay, or post office, which you'll find right off of Tvrdalj square in the center of town. You can opt for calling packages pretty easily. The instructions on the packaging are in English and a number of other languages as well. You can go to their website, and re-up each week, if you are staying for an extended period of time. No paperwork to sign, no ID required, no deposit for the card, just grab and go. AMAZING.
Stari Grad has great Wifi. Our apartment has good wifi, and most of the bars will give you the password for their network if you hang for a beverage.
With the use of a converter most electronics work just fine in Croatia.
Computers have no issue, phone charging has gone smoothly. I have been carrying around my converters, but I am sure you can get universal plugs here in the shops.
In town next to Marko Pizzeria you'll find the Papirnica. Here you'll find basic office supplies. Pencils, pens, notebooks and an array of other useful items if you are here as a digital nomad.
If you find yourself in need of some clean clothing, whether you airbnb doesn't have laundry (which is rare) or you've come in by boat - there is a little spot where the Riva ends on the left hand side opposite the bay. Laundry Room Bubble is here to help. Give them a call to schedule a time to bring your items in at +385 95 358 5521, or stop by if you don't have a local phone.
