Ivan Prgomet, a barber, cleans up at his salon in Zagreb
Ivan Prgomet, 71, a barber, cleans up after cutting the hair of a customer at his salon in downtown Zagreb October 1, 2014. "I can barely put together enough money to pay the rent and bills," Prgomet said. "Before 1990, I employed seven people. I thought things would only get better after independence. But they didn't." Croatia is in its sixth year of recession, and risks a seventh in 2015. With an economy 13 percent smaller than it was in 2008, Croatia's fall is second only to debt-laden Greece, fueling speculation that the ex-Yugoslav republic -- not yet a member of the euro zone -- may have to seek European financial aid. Signs of poverty are everywhere, from the rise of thrift stores to the growing number of abandoned, boarded-up shops in the heart of Zagreb -- a stark contrast to the popular image of Croatia as a tourist trap for beachgoers and island-hoppers.
