Croatia joins the European Union

As of 1st of July 2013, Croatia becomes the 28th member of the European Union bloc and the second of the former Yugoslav states to enter the EU, after Slovenia’s accession in 2004.
Croatia is a country marked by the 1991-1995 war of independence, being  diplomatically recognized by (at the time) European Economic Community in January 1992.

It currently has 4.4 million inhabitants, the majority of whom had voted for the country’s accession to the EU.
"We are here on this historic night. It was your desire to join EU, and your hard work has made this possible," the president of the European Commission, Jose Manuel Barroso, said during the celebrations which took place on the night of the accession in Zagreb, the capital of Croatia.
