The capital of Croatia, Zagreb, is the largest city in the country with about 800,000 inhabitants.
It is even cheaper than Split and the cost of living is estimated to be 15 percent lower than in the coastal city.
Both cities have extremely low crime rates, making them safe places for Brits looking for a peaceful retirement.
Budget flights to Croatia are available from most major airports in the UK, meaning retirees can easily visit family back home.
