Croatia Flag

Croatia is a country in south-eastern Europe. The Croatian national territory covers approx. 87,700 square kilometers, of which 56,592 are land and 31,067 are sea territory.

Due to the territorial location of Bosnia and Herzegovina, the national territory of Croatia is restricted to a continental northern part and a long coastal strip, which are only connected in the northwest. The southernmost part of the coastal area (the region around Dubrovnik to the border with Montenegro) is separated from the rest of Croatia over a width of about three kilometers by the municipality of Neum, which belongs to Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The length of the Adriatic coastline is 1778 kilometers. But if you add the numerous Croatian islands, it is 6176 km. Croatia has a total of 1246 islands, of which only 47 are permanently inhabited.

The Adriatic coast is the center of tourism and shipping. Around 10 million tourists visit Croatia every year and generate around 20% of Croatia’s GDP. Shipbuilding also makes an important contribution to Croatia’s economic output. The Croatian shipyards have a long tradition, are known for their good quality and enjoy a high reputation all over the world.

On July 1, 2013, Croatia became the 28th member of the EU. Accession to the EU is expected to give the country an important economic boost.
