With Heureka to Croatia

Croatia is a Mediterranean country bordering Slovenia in the west, Hungary in the north, Serbia in the east and Bosnia and Herzegovina in the south. Croatia’s declaration of independence in 1991 contributed to the breakup of Yugoslavia along ethnic and religious lines. Croatia joined NATO in 2009 and the EU in 2013. Shipbuilding and tourism are major industries. A weak export base, emigration and the slow pace of privatization remain significant challenges. E-commerce in Croatia has been growing since the country joined the EU in 2013.
