Once in Croatia, please make yourself at home. In our country you are not a foreigner, but a guest whom we regard as a friend of our country and our people. We will respond in the same manner.
The Republic of Croatia is a young democratic European state – the Croatian parliament declared independence in 1991 (having previously broken off all state and legal ties with the former Yugoslavia).
On 15 January 1992, the member states of the European Union recognised Croatia as an independent state, and the country was admitted to the UN on 22 May 1992.
This is a country of European refinement and history. Even though Croatia is a new state, its people have participated in much of the history of the Old Continent.
We would like to extend a warm welcome and wish you a pleasant stay in Croatia.
