There are no boring pages in the story book,
In it you will not meet random heroes and faces …
In the 9th century, Croatia developed as a state. It was like this … In 925, all the noble people gathered and decided that Croatia should become a kingdom. Immediately they chose a king and a queen in addition to it, so that it would not be boring for them to live and live and make other royal princes.
In 1526, the cunning Habsburg dynasty laid eyes on Croatia and decided to conquer it. In a word, the Habsburgs took their picturesque possessions to their hands. But they underestimated the Turks, who had long dreamed of conquering the Croatian people. To be honest, the hot Turks liked the beautiful local girls. This is how Croatia came under the rule of the Ottoman Empire.
In the 18th century, Croatia became dependent on the Hungarian authorities. But the long-awaited freedom already loomed at the entrance … During the revolution of 1848-1849. Croatia achieved autonomy within the Habsburg Empire. It is a pity, but the Croats did not know that the freedom of the bird is playful. You need to look after her. She fluttered out of the hands of a happy people and flew to other lands.
After the suppression of the revolution, the Croatian-Hungarian agreement of 1868 recognized only the limited autonomy of the Croatian lands. The 20th century brought Croatia many trials. Indeed, the path to independence was long and difficult. Since 1918, Croatia has been in the kingdom of Serbs and Slovenes. Remember the glorious Yugoslavia? In Soviet times, for us it was the most chic abroad. And as we envied, those lucky ones who managed to visit Yugoslavia … Croatia was also a part of it.
During the Great Patriotic War, most of Croatia was captured by the Nazis, and the fascist independent state of Croatia was created on its territory. Since 1945 The Croatian Republic became part of the Federal People’s Republic of Yugoslavia. For a long time the Communist Party was in power here.
The year 1991 came, which became a turning point not only in the history of Russia, but also the whole world. For Croatia, a new history began – the history of independence. And I must say that the Croatian people deserve it. It’s a shame that the history of this extraordinary country is often not considered in textbooks. Although, maybe one of you will take and write her story. Believe me, the Croats will be very pleased.
