Summary
Find out the dates and history of Croatian Independence Day

Croatia is a country in southeastern Europe. Historically part of the Austria-Hungarian Empire until its collapse at the end of the first world war, Croatia was one of the six republics that formed Yugoslavia.

Croatia had declared independence from Yugoslavia on June 25th 1991. This date is commemorated as Croatian Statehood Day.

A week later, Croatia and Slovenia signed the Brioni Declaration in which both countries agreed to a three-month moratorium on all secession declarations and acts of parliament while European negotiators attempted to broker an agreement on the future of Yugoslavia.

The talks failed and on October 8th 1991, Croatia moved ahead with its plan for independence.

Independence Day was implemented by the Croatian government in 2001 and was first celebrated on October 8th 2002.

It became a memorial day in 2020.
