Counties of Croatia

Counties of Croatia. For the first time Croatia was divided into counties in the Middle Ages. Administrative divisions changed over time due to the loss of land in Ottoman conquests over time, the liberation of these lands, the change of political status in Dalmatia, Dubrovnik and Istria. This traditional division has completely disappeared in the 1920s due to the Slovenian, Croatian, and Serbian kingdoms, followed by the oblasts and banovas created by the Kingdom of Yugoslavia.
Croatia in the communist regime was one of the items that brought Yugoslavia into force, a force in the Second World War. During this period, the administrative structure was totally changed and the country was divided into 100 municipalities. With a law issued in 1992, it was again divided into administrative units from 1920, but 8 counties and centers established in 1918 in Translitia formed 7 counties beside Bjelovar, Gospić, Ogulin, Požega, Vukovar, Varaždin, Osijek and Zagreb

Since its re-division in 1992, the country has been divided into 20 counties and Zagreb Capital Territory. Zagreb has the authority to have a county and a city. Counties’ boundaries have changed a few times; the most important of these changes came to the fore in 2006. Counties are divided into a total of 127 towns and 429 municipalities.
