 GENERAL INFO (Jump to Diary)
The official name is Republic of Croatia, and it covers 56.594 square kilometres, and the government is a unitary parliamentary constitutional republic. It is populated by 4.200.000 citizens of which 91% are Christians, 5% Atheism or Agnosticism, and 1,5% Muslims.
The currency is Kuna (HRK), worth 1 Danish Krone. The GDP is US$51.945 billion.

The climate varieties from a  continental to a Mediterranean climate in the south. Croatia can be subdivided between a number of ecoregions because of its climate and geomorphology. The country is consequently one of the richest in Europe in terms of biodiversity. There are four types of biogeographical regions in Croatia: Mediterranean along the coast and in its immediate hinterland, Alpine in most of Lika and Gorski Kotar, Pannonian along Drava and Danube, and Continental in the remaining areas.
Among the many mammals are the Eurasian Lynx (Lynx lynx), Grey wolf (Canis lupus), European Pine Marten (Martes martes), European Otter (Lutra lutra), Eurasian Brown Bear (Ursus arctos arctos), European beaver (Castor fiber), Alpine marmot (Marmota marmota)a lot of bats, Eurasian badger (Meles meles), Boar (Sus scrofa) and Moose (Alces alces).
The flora is rich too, but there are no specific species I'm looking for.

Well, I have not seen Croatia yet, but one summer in the near future, I hope to.
