About Croatia

Croatia, often also called a country of a thousand islands – it is a blend of a thousand year-old historical and cultural heritage, unreal natural beauty, top gastronomy, different lifestyles, dialects and mentalities. Welcome!


Croatia is a Mediterranean middle European country, bordered by the Adriatic sea along its entire coastline. Encompassing the area of the Pannonian lowlands, through the narrow area of the Dinara mountain, as far as the Adriatic sea, an unusual horseshoe shape has been created – different and unique. With its 2,028 km-long frontier, it borders with Slovenia in the west, Hungary in the north, Serbia, Montenegro and Bosnia and Herzegovina in the east, while the Adriatic sea divides it from neighbouring Italy. Its capital is Zagreb, the economic, political, cultural and academic centre of Croatia.


The total surface area of Croatia equals 89.810 km2, of which 56.610 km2 is land, while 33.200 km2 belongs to the sea. The 5.835 km-long Croatian coast is made up of 1.244 islands, islets, cliffs and rocks, but also bays, basins and peninsulas. Such indented and rich coastline is the reason why Croatia is often called the country of a thousand islands.


According to the most recent census, 3,888.529 inhabitants live in Croatia. The majority of the inhabitants are made up of Croatians and the most numerous minorities are Serbs, Bosnians, Albanians, Italians and Slovenians. The most represented religion is Catholic, followed by Greek orthodox in second place and Islamic in third place. The official language is Croatian, the mother tongue of 95% of the population. Apart from Croatian, Italian is also an official language in Istria.


Due to its geographical position, the climate in Croatia is divided into two zones – moderately continental and Mediterranean. The moderately continental climate and partially also the mountain climate, characterised by sharp and cold winters and relatively dry summers, prevail in inland Croatia. On the other hand, areas along the Adriatic coast have a pleasant Mediterranean climate, characterised by dry and hot summers and wet and mild winters. Thanks to the Mediterranean climate, the Adriatic coast abounds in sunny days and sea temperatures which, during the summer months, do not fall below 20°C. Sunny and warm days throughout the year have created a holiday destination for all the seasons.
