According to itypeusa, Croatia is a small country located in Central Europe, bordered by Slovenia to the north, Hungary to the northeast, Bosnia and Herzegovina to the east, Serbia to the southeast and Montenegro to the south. The capital of Croatia is Zagreb and its official language is Croatian. The currency used in Croatia is the Croatian Kuna (HRK). Croatia has a rich cultural heritage with strong influences from both native Slavic people and Italian colonizers. It also has strong ties with other European countries due to its membership in both NATO and the European Union. There are a range of festivals and celebrations that take place throughout the year such as Martinska which celebrates Saint Martin’s Day or Vinkovački Vinogradi which celebrates Croatia’s wine culture. The economy of Croatia relies heavily on tourism with visitors coming from all over Europe to experience its stunning coastline, diverse wildlife, vibrant cities or its many beaches along the Adriatic Sea. Other industries include agriculture (wheat, corn), manufacturing (metals, chemicals) and fishing. Croatia offers visitors a range of activities from exploring national parks such as Plitvice Lakes National Park or Krka National Park which are home to some of Europe’s most diverse wildlife including bears, wolves or eagles; or discovering stunning landscapes such as Velebit Mountain near Senj or Mosor Mountain near Split – both offering spectacular views over surrounding sea and islands below. There are also numerous water sports available such as kayaking in Zrmanja River or sailing in Kornati Islands; while adventure seekers can explore caves at Cerovačke Caves or go rafting in Una River Valley. Croatia is located in the Central European Time Zone (CET) and observes the same time as much of Western Europe. During Daylight Saving Time (DST), clocks are moved forward one hour to UTC+2. DST begins on the last Sunday of March and ends on the last Sunday of October each year. In addition to observing Daylight Saving Time along with other parts of Central Europe, Croatia also observes certain holidays with special times or exceptions to its standard time zone. For example, on Easter Sunday all clocks are moved back by one hour for an additional hour of daylight savings time. On All Saints Day (the day celebrating deceased loved ones) all clocks are moved forward by two hours so that people can attend celebrations earlier at night; this is known as “Croatian Miracle” or “Little Croatia” in some parts of the country. The CET also shares its time zone with other countries such as Austria, Hungary and Slovenia. This means that people living in these countries will experience the same time as those living in Croatia during DST, but may observe different holidays with different times or exceptions to their standard time zone. Overall, Croatia follows the Central European Time Zone and observes Daylight Saving Time along with other parts of Central Europe. It also has certain holidays where clocks are moved forward or backward for an additional hour so that people can attend celebrations earlier at night.
