In 1918, the Croats, Serbs, and Slovenes formed a kingdom known after 1929 as Yugoslavia. Following World War II, Yugoslavia became an independent communist state under the strong hand of Marshal TITO. Although Croatia declared its independence from Yugoslavia in 1991, it took four years of sporadic, but often bitter, fighting before occupying Serb armies were mostly cleared from Croatian lands. Under UN supervision the last Serb-held enclave in eastern Slavonia was returned to Croatia in 1998.
Croatia, a parliamentary democracy recognized since 1992, is geographically, culturally and historically in the very heart of Europe. While covering only a relatively small area and with only 4.8 million inhabitants, it has had an unenviable role as the border between East and West. Through its culture and traditions, Croatia has always been in the European, Mediterranean, Catholic West- and it is a bulwark of Christianity bordering the East. It is a country where cultures meet.
