    Croatian did wont bigger country, and even today some of them claim parts of Slovenia, Serbian, Bosnia and Hungary.

    I'm glad cause You saw this unnatural shape, cause even these territories that are treated as Croatia were part of Serbia before WWII, and when Reichstags government took over Croatia, they got that parts to Croatia.

    After WWII Serbia, Croatia and four other countries created Yugoslavia, but that country stopped existing in 1991. but parts of old Serbia stayed behind river Drina. Similar things happened to parts of Bosnia and that's why there country doesn't have even inch of cost line...

    History, what a wonderful thing...

  • most of where the Dinaric Alps are should belong to Croatia. The following cities have a majority Croatian population: Mostar, Grude, Livno, Tomislavgrad. Many cities in Bosnia are supposed to be in Croatia. I'm not a nationalist every Croat knows this.

    All of previously Herceg Bosna should belong to Croatia.

    Because Croatia and the Croatian nobility in the Middle Ages in the historical period of the invasion of the Turks never capitulated entirely, and the Christian world would not allow you to surrender the last possession in the vicinity of the property under the protection of the Vatican. Thus, unlike the prior-state Croatian, Croatia didnt became completely under the Ottoman empire, and thus in a period called The reinforcement of Christianity and "remnants". Thus Bosnia and Serbien Voivodina as the name of the Croatian estates under the Turks gained importance in a given period.

    Common sense is telling me that they took the best parts(the coast) for themselves, which sounds very greedy and my first impression is that the nation is still greedy nowadays.

    The country really resembles what kind of nation hides in it.

    It's actually pretty funny to see a country shaped like this! It's awkward. They should give some of their coast to the others.

    It is shaped like a C so no one forgets.
