Croatia is in southeastern Europe. It was incorporated into Yugoslavia in 1918, declared its independence in 1991 and became a member of the European Union in 2013. The Croatian economy suffered during the Croatian War of Independence, which ended in 1995, but the end of the war allowed it to begin to recover, and in the 21st century Croatians have enjoyed economic growth and a quality of life on par with the most developed European countries. Croatia joined the eurozone in January 2023. Tourism has become a significant industry, with people from around the world coming to enjoy Croatia's famous beaches and see the cities of Dubrovnik and Split. Other significant Croatian industries are wood processing, furniture production, fishing and winemaking. The island of Krk is also home to a large liquified natural gas terminal.
