About Croatia

Croatia resembles an arc, with a long Adriatic coastline forming the western leg, and the land between the rivers Drava and Sava forming the northern leg. The capital, Zagreb, sits on the intersection of the northern and western legs of the arc. The Adriatic coastline has as many as 1,185 islands, while the 1,500-meter high Dinaric Alps run the length of the country. The Styrian Alps run north to southeast down the northern leg of Croatia, descending to the Hungarian plain in the extreme east at Osijek; much of this land is lower lying than the rest of Croatia and includes areas of marshlands. The Dalmatian coast and islands are important to future economy. The rivers in western Croatia tend to be small mountain streams. The Danube forms the eastern border with Yugoslavia (Serbia) while the other two large rivers, the Sava and Drava, form the southern and northern borders with Bosnia-Herzegovinian and Hungary respectively. The land area between the rivers is dissected by many other smaller tributaries. The Adriatic coastline is the most prominent feature of Croatia. It runs the entire length of the western border, from the 430-km Istrian peninsula in the north to Dubrovnik in the south. The coast is highly indented with rocky cliffs and many small inlets.
