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.
A few years ago we had a simple and interesting slogan: Croatia is a small country for a great vacation! I am sure that we can proudly continue to use it.
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).
