Croatia Coat of Arms

Croatian / Hrvatski

Croatian is a standardised variety of the Serbo-Croatian language, mainly spoken by Croats in Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and a small pocket of Serbia. Croatian holds official language status in Croatia and the European Union, and is a recognised minority language in Montenegro, Austria, Hungary, Italy and Romania.

While much of the Croatian vocabulary has Latin or German origins, most new Croatian words are created by joining and adapting existing terms.

Did You Know?

Croatian and Serbian are mutually intelligible languages and were historically treated as a single language: Serbo-Croat. However, due to conflicts in the Balkan region, opposing national groups have established and codified their own official languages.

Although Croatian and Serbian are technically forms of Serbo-Croatian, they are usually treated as distinct languages.
