Croatian [Hrvatski]

This page has been archived and is no longer being added to or maintained.

Croatian is a Slavic language spoken by residents of Croatia and by Croatian people in several surrounding countries including Bosnia and even parts of Italy and Romania. The alphabet is based on the Latin alphabet. There appears to be some confusion as to whether it is a separate language from Serbian or part of a broader Serbo-Croatian language. Note this does not refer to culture, just language. Make your own judgement regarding this.
