Croatia is a “C” shaped country, much of which runs along the Adriatic Sea. Croats are a type of Slavic people who arrived in the region around the 600s AD, and became part of the Hungarian Empire in the 1100s, although they maintained semi-independence.

After several territorial changes and foreign conquerors, Croatia became part of Yugoslavia in the early 1900s, and became an independent country in 1991. Croatian is the country’s primary language.

Croatian themes include fruit, wine, olives, animated films, literature, textiles, and chemicals.
