Useful Information About Croatia

The boomerang-shaped Republic of Croatia is home to 4.5 million people. All photographs of Croatia feature the sunny old town of Dubrovnik from every possible angle; however, most of Croatia's land and population are part of the dull and freezing Hungarian Plain. Zagreb once recorded -27.3°C. They didn't want us to tell you that, but we just did. Ha.

Croatia is responsible for Yugoslavia's only winning entry and won the first Junior edition, but there is yet to be a proper Eurovision Song Contest winner who carries the checkerboard flag.


Croatia in the Eurovision Song Contest 2009

Croatia have sent the charmingly-named Igor Cukrov with the song Lijepe Tena.

Because he couldn't sing, they employed Andrea (of Noah Noah, DORA 2004 fame) to hide that fact.

Think Slovakia 09 meets Bosnia-Herzegovina 07. Or don't - it's probably safer that way.
