Hello I am from Croatia. Its Political system is Republic and its capital city is Zagreb. Croatia has 56542 km² and 4.4 million of population. Its currency is kuna.

Croatia’s borders are Bosnia and Herzegovina, Slovenia, Hungary and Serbia and the language most spoken is croatian.

It became an independent state in 1991 following the break-up of the former Yugoslavia.

The Croatian Parliament (the Sabor) is a single-chamber legislative body made up of between 100 and 160 members elected by popular vote to serve four-year terms. Croatia has an economy based mainly on light industry and services. Tourism is a notable source of income. Tourists are most familiar with Croatia for its Dalmatian coast with hundreds of islands as well as the historic cities of Dubrovnik, Split and Zadar.

Six World Heritage sites and eight national parks bear witness to Croatia’s immense cultural and natural wealth. The richness of Croatia’s culture is a result of its sometimes turbulent history, first as part of the Roman Empire and then as a frontier region on the border between the Austro-Hungarian and Ottoman Empires.

Marco Polo was born in Korcula, Croatia and he discovered China.

Croatian cuisine includes dishes such as grilled meat, Dalmatian smoked ham, salted pilchards, sheep's cheese and paprika-flavoured salami. Croatia produces many fine wines.

In 2013 Croatia is going to belong to the European Union.

I would not like to live in Croatia because I think Spain is a more stable country and better to live.
