The subject of research is non-formal adult education in Osijek and Rijeka. The research covers a part of awareness, involvement and satisfaction of citizens with nonformal programs. Using the survey as an instrument of research on a random sample of 100 citizens of Osijek and 100 citizens of Rijeka, the results showed that respondents from Rijeka are more familiar with the offer of non-formal education than respondents in Osijek, which are mostly only partially familiar with the offer. Similarly, respondents who are familiar with the offer are only partially satisfied with the diversity of these offerings. Accordingly, respondents from Rijeka involve more in non-formal programs than respondents from Osijek. Nevertheless, the data obtained showed that the respondents from Osijek were satisfied with programs in which they took part, while the number of citizens of Rijeka expresses their displeasure. Other results are presented as corroboration to the data. Research has given a generalized image of "position" of non-formal education in the cities of Osijek and Rijeka.
