Emerging from the break-up of Yugoslavia in 1991, Croatia is today a European Union and NATO member state, striving for international investment and growth. While historically not an aerospace country, Croatia has a strong tradition in  tourism, with space tourism representing the next frontier! The goal of SGAC in Croatia is to help connect the fledgling space sector with international partners, as well as to promote space science and engineering among students and young adults.

 

Young Space Activities Overview in Croatia

Space science is represented in Croatian universities (Zagreb, Rijeka, Split) and various astronomical observatories (Zagreb, Višnjan), which are also active in outreach and education programs for children and teenagers. There is a very active World Space Week group in Croatia, based in Osijek, which organizes various events every year in October.
