If there is a bigger fan of Zagreb, I have yet to meet that person.
Of all the digital nomads who have spent time in the Croatian capital this year (and there have been many), few have been as visible as Steve Tsentserensky from Cleveland, Ohio. One of the first recipients of the Croatian digital nomad permit back in March, Steve has been very active travelling around the country, but all roads ultimately lead back to his true Croatian love, Zagreb.
One of the most effective and active ambassadors of Croatia to the global digital nomad community, I was delighted for Steve when he was named Zagreb Digital Nomad Special Guest Ambassador 2021 in recognition of his efforts so far.
And the new title had a very positive effect, as Steve had arguably his most active month so far, both in the media and public speaking, as well as covering as much of the city and many events as was humanly possible.
TCN caught up with Steve just before Christmas at the location where Zagreb’s digital nomad journey began – Canopy by Hilton – to reflect on life in Zagreb in December, and to learn how nomads spend this traditional family time. I was not surprised to learn that Steve’s Christmas was a lot more active than mine.
The Zagreb Digital Nomad Week and Ambassador Project is a collaboration between Saltwater Nomads,,Total Croatia News, and Zagreb Tourist Board, and it will run until December 31. Six ambassadors plus Steve each spent a calendar month in the city starting on July 1.
Stay tuned for more information about Zagreb Digital Nomad Week 2022 – more details will be announced shortly.
