Croatia is a Central European and Mediterranean country, bordering Slovenia in the west, Hungary in the north, Serbia in the east and Bosnia and Herzegovina in the south. Croatia also has a long maritime border with Italy in the Adriatic Sea. These borders total 2,028 km altogether. Croatia has a strange shape (similar to a croissant) - similar to no other country in the world - which comes as a result of five centuries of expansion by the Ottoman (Turkish) empire towards Central Europe (although Croatia was never conquered by the Turks). Croatia covers a land area of 56,691 square kilometres and has a population of about 4.4 million people (2001 census). Over 90% of the population is Croat (the majority of whom are Roman Catholics), but there are also Serbian, Bosnian, Hungarian and Italian minorities. The main population centres are Zagreb, the capital (with a population of just under 800,000), Osijek in the northwest, and the ports of Rijeka, and Split in the south. The official language is Croatian, which is written in the Latin script. Croatia has an amazing 5,835km of coastline, 4,057km of which belongs to islands, cliffs and reefs. There are 1,185 islands in the Adriatic, but only about 50 are populated. The largest island is Krk (near Rijeka) which has a land area of 462 square km. The climate is Mediterranean along the Adriatic coast, meaning warm dry summers and mild winters, with 2,600 hours of sunlight on average yearly - it is one of the sunniest coastlines in Europe! In the interior of the country, the climate is continental with hot summers and cold, snowy winters. _____________________________________________________________ www.croatia.hr (Croatia Tourist Information Service) _____________________________________________________________ www.hr/index.en.shtml (Home Page of the Republic of Croatia) _____________________________________________________________ www.lonelyplanet.com/destinations/europe/croatia/ _____________________________________________________________ www.croatiaemb.org/ (Croatian Embassy - Home Page) _____________________________________________________________ www.hina.hr/nws-bin/ehot.cgi (Croatian News Agency) _____________________________________________________________ www.hznet.hr (Croatian railways) _____________________________________________________________ http://www.croatiaairlines.hr/ _____________________________________________________________ http://www.hic.hr/hrvatski/marketing/turizam/Kampovi.htm (campsides in Croatia, by region) ______________________________________________________________ Interesting group for all of you who want to get more information about Europe in general: Europe, Talk 2 Me http://www.care2.com/c2c/group/ET2M
