Overview <p>Croatia&#039;s declaration of independence in 1991 was followed by four years of war and the best part of a decade of authoritarian nationalism under President Franjo Tudjman.</p> <p>By early 2003 it had made enough progress in shaking off the legacy of those years to apply for EU membership, becoming the second former Yugoslav republic after Slovenia to do so.</p> <p>A country of striking natural beauty with a stunning Adriatic coastline, Croatia is again very popular as a tourist destination.</p><br> <a href="http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-17212572">Full Article</a> <p>Part of Czechoslovakia until the &quot;velvet divorce&quot; in January 1993, the Czech Republic has a robust democratic tradition, a highly-developed economy, and a rich cultural heritage.</p> <p>It emerged from over 40 years of Communist rule in 1990, and was the first former Eastern Bloc state to acquire the status of a developed economy. It joined the European Union in 2004.</p> <p>Communist rule had lasted since the late 1948, when the restored prewar democratic system was overthrown in a Soviet-backed coup. The &quot;Prague Spring&quot; of 1968, when Communist leader Alexander Dubcek tried to bring in liberal reforms, was crushed by Warsaw Pact tanks.</p><br> <a href="http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-17220018">Full Article</a>
