interesting facts:
Croatia officially started efforts for the EU membership by signing the Stabilisation and Association Agreement in 2001, which assumed a transition period for a candidate to adjust the national law to the European one. After two years Croatia applied for the membership. On June 18, 2004 the European Council granted Croatia status of the country-candidate for the European Union - therefore this date is commemorated on the coin's reverse. In October 2005 the EU launched the accession negotiations with Croatia, which finished on June 20, 2011. Croatia became the EU member on July 1, 2013.
