Located in Southeastern Europe between Bosnia, Herzegovina and Slovenia, Croatia borders the Adriatic Sea and enjoys stunning coastlines there. The landscape varies greatly depending on where you are in the country. There are the flat plains along the Hungarian border; near the Adriatic coastline there are low mountains and highlands and along the coastline itself there are wonderful unspoilt, sandy beaches.

It's location means that it has control over most of the strategically important overland routes between northern and western Europe and the Aegean sea and Turkish straits, something which has proved a valuable economic resource in the past. The country further benefits from its rich landscape and wealth of natural resources including but not limited to its Petroleum, coal reserves, bauxite, natural asphalt, silica, salt and hydropower.
