Earlier this summer we helped Davor to relocate to Berlin from Zagreb. He is now working for one of the largest internet platfroms as a Software Engineer. Read this short interview to find out about his life in Berlin.
How was the process of moving from Zagreb to Berlin?
The process of moving to Berlin was pretty easy. Company provided basic relocation package so I didn’t have to worry about apartment beforehand. Since I moved within Europe there was not change in how things are regarding culture, behaviour, etc. One think to look out after moving is bureaucracy. There is a lot of paper work to fill, but after a month all should be “over”.
As an expat how much do you feel at home in the city?
Since Berlin is home to so many foreigners I don’t feel like an outsider that much. This still is German city, so there might be some differences for some. I quite like it.
Are you able to make the most of your spare time? What activities do you like doing in Berlin?
Yes I can do what ever I want. There are a lot of great small restaurants. Beautiful countryside. Climbing in-doors.
What still surprises you about Berlin?
Still haven’t seen like 90% of the city. Looking forward to exploring all.
What tips and advice would you give someone who’s moving to Berlin?
You shouldn’t hesitate to come. It’s a great city in which you can always found something for yourself.
Stay cool 🙂
