Croatia is a country located in southern Europe and stretches across the northwestern part of the Balkan Peninsula. Croatian territory is traversed by the Dinaric Alps and the country is bordered to the north by Slovenia, to the northeast by Hungary, to the east by Serbia, to the south by Bosnia and Herzegovina and Montenegro, and to the west by the Adriatic Sea.
Croatia gained its independence in 1991 after the dissolution of Yugoslavia. Since 1 July 2013, it has been part of the European Union and its capital is Zagreb. Its territory is characterised by areas with different morphological, climatic and geographical features. In particular, in the easternmost part of the country is a vast flat area, in the centre are the main mountain ranges (the highest peak is Mount Dinara at 1831 metres), while further west is a long coastal strip.
With almost 6,000 km of coastline, 1,000 islands, beautiful National Parks and a truly unique historical heritage, Croatia is a popular tourist destination, especially during the summer season.
From an administrative point of view, Croatia has 20 regions (županijea in Croatian), plus the city of Zagreb, which, as the capital, constitutes its own entity. In addition to the regions, the country also has 127 cities (grad) and 424 municipalities (općina).
