Meet Dubrovnik’s Digital Nomads-in-Residence: Zoltan Nagy from Hungary in Tenerife

Total Croatia News

Updated on:

The DNiR programme, which has been designed by Saltwater Nomads, in partnership with Total Croatia News, the CIty of Dubrovnik and the Dubrovnik Tourist Board (and financed by the latter two), is an innovative direction for the Pearl of the Adriatic, as it looks to diversify its tourism strategy away from overtourism and in the wake of the pandemic. 


1. You are a DN-i-R winner. Congratulations! How do you feel?

I feel pretty lucky. Not only am I going to visit one of my favorite foreign countries, and go somewhere I haven’t been to before, but in the meantime, I’m going to get to know some people with the same free-spirited mindset like myself. I’m looking forward to spending time together and I’m excited about the change/development this program will bring to my life.

2. How did you hear about the competition, and why did you decide to apply?

A friend asked me if I’d heard about this possibility. I’ve been planning two things for years. 1. Explore the southern part of Croatia. 2. Try co-living. I’ve been to co-working offices in a few places, but Co-Living is going to be a whole new experience.

I love Croatia very much! Crystal clear sea water, lovely local people, phenomenally good food and breathtaking historic towns always lure you back. I’ve been there many times, but I’ve never gotten this far south. My longest stay was in 2018, when I lived and worked online for 3 months in a small village called Karin near Zadar.

3. Which particular skills and ideas will you be bringing to the party?

First of all, I consider myself a photographer and a videographer. These are the topics I have the most to offer, I think. But I’m also good at online marketing, and I make websites for companies on a daily basis.

4. What are you must looking forward to about DNIR?

As I mentioned already, I’m looking forward to meeting like minded people. I really hope that we will learn many new and useful things from each other in the month we will spend together. I really like being in the company of people with similar thinking. During my travels, I met many inspiring people. Without them, I wouldn’t be where I am right now.
I also hope to be able to take really good photos and videos of the area. I want to show as many Hungarians as possible that you don’t have to travel to the other side of the world breathtaking sights of all these beautiful places. All you have to do is drive to the neighbouring country 🙂

5. Let’s get you involved in the Dubrovnik community. Who or what would you like to connect with?

As my passion is photography, I would like to connect with local photographers, content creators.
