Croatia (Hrvatska) is a historic country that is yet relatively young. Once a strong kingdom under Tomislav in the tenth century, a maritime force in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, and an awakened national entity in the nineteenth, it had to undergo a thousand years of foreign interference, subjugation, invasions, and open conflicts before being acknowledged as a separate entity in 1992.
