Croatian History

Croatian history The history of Croatia began in 229 BC when the Romans took over the land, and Emperor Diocletian established a fortress around his palace.

By the fifth century, the Roman Empire in the West ended, and the two separated European provinces, Pannonian Croatia and Dalmatian Croatia. It was in 1835 that Croatian culture and politics flourished.

World War II brought a lot of destruction to Croatia, which was then a part of Yugoslavia. Fortunately, the war ended, and the country became a republic under the leadership of Marshal Tito. A new type of government, fascism, was developed after the Communist leader died in 1980. Because of political instability, the economy of the country suffered.

By June 1991, Croatia was formally separated from the Yugoslavian Federation. However, this wasn't meant with open arms, and a war ensued. The United Nations then sent out protection force in December 1991. In December 1995, the Dayton agreement was signed, and Croatia slowly attained peace. Leaders, both present and former, tried to improve the economy of the country through international trade.
