The territory of the Croatia is configured in two arms converging to West protruding respectively E towards the interior of the continent and SE along the coasts of the Adriatic. Croatia is mainly mountainous in the maritime regions of Istria, Lika and Dalmatia, while the inland Danubian ones are mostly flat. The latter include the historical core of Croatia around the capital Zagreb, as well as Slavonia further to the E, where the Drava valley (Podravina) and Baranya to the North and the Sava valley can be distinguished. (Posavina) in S. Numerous islands off the Adriatic coast complete the territory. The great majority of the population perceives a strong sense of belonging to the Croatian nation, whose origin is recognized by the Slavic tribes that between the sec. VI and VII occupied the corner of the Balkans in which the Zagreb region is located. Croatia after a period of independence with a local dynasty in the early Middle Ages, became a fief of Hungary, to which it remained linked until the century. XX despite a long interlude of Ottoman domination from 1526 to 1699. The regions of Istria and Dalmatia, however, until their occupation by France Napoleonic, have orbited within the economic and cultural sphere of the Republic of Venice, so much so that there the lingua franca used for centuries by Italians and Slavs was that of the Serenissima. The two “souls” of present-day Croatia, namely the Croatian-Pannonian and the Adriatic, although included in the same political institutions from the century onwards. XIX, they had a real unity only starting from the State founded by Tito in 1945, which associated them in the Republic of Croatia included in Yugoslavia federal. It was part of it until 1991, the year in which it proclaimed independence, recognized internationally in 1992. Croatia, whose secession took place in the name of the Croatian nation’s right to self-determination, nevertheless had to deal with the demands of the populations of other nationalities residing on its territory, who, on the other hand, did not accept the institution of the new state on a mononational basis; the Croatian nation today, in addition to the use of the Latin alphabet which differentiates it from the Serbian one which makes use of the Cyrillic, also identifies with the Catholic religion. To reject the new nation-state established in 1991, it was above all the Serbian community rooted for centuries in the border region of Krajina, which recognized as a constitutive nation of Croatia itself at the time of federal Yugoslavia, after the proclamation of independence found itself relegated to the rank of ethnic minority. Before proclaiming its sovereignty, Croatia was among the most economically advanced republics of federal Yugoslavia. In fact, it could count not only on modern industrial production, but also on the huge income ensured by the large influx of tourists attracted by the Adriatic coasts and islands. After the crises caused by the country’s involvement in the Yugoslav wars of the nineties, the economy, linked to that of the countries of central Europe, underwent a new phase of growth thanks to substantial foreign investments. In terms of international relations, Franjo Tuđjman, considered the “father” of the new state. In fact, until then the government had refused both to offer collaboration to the European institutions to secure Croatian war criminals to the international court in The Hague, and to allow the return of Serbian refugees who had escaped due to war. Since 2000, on the other hand, a dialogue has been initiated on these issues, above all in view of Croatia’s entry into the EU. However, Croatian public opinion, hostile to interference in domestic political issues and disappointed by the economic stagnation that hit Croatia in the 2000s like the rest of Europe, has reduced its enthusiasm since 2004 in the face of a forthcoming Croatian integration into the EU. According to COUNTRYAAH, Croatia is a nation in Southern Europe, the capital city of which is Zagreb. The latest population of Croatia is 4,105,278.
