Abstract

Croatia is a crescent-shaped country in the north-western part of the Balkans, flanking the Adriatic Sea, having been previously part of Yugoslavia. The Dinaric Alps border an indented coastline with many islands and give way eastwards to rich agricultural plains which are drained by the Sava River flowing eastwards to the Black Sea. It supports a population of 4.4 million.
