EXPLANATIONS ON CHANGES OF THE TERRITORIAL CONSTITUTION
OF THE REPUBLIC OF CROATIA FROM 1991 TO 2001

The House of Representatives of the Parliament of the Republic of Croatia passed the Law on Territories of Counties, Towns and Municipalities in the Republic of Croatia (Narodne novine, official gazette of the Republic of Croatia, No. 90/92), which established 21 counties, 70 towns and 419 municipalities.

Since 1992 the number of counties, towns and municipalities has been changing. Therefore, for our users’ reference, we list issues of Narodne novine, the official gazette of the Republic of Croatia, where these changes are published: 69/95, 10/97, 124/97, 68/98, 22/99, 117/99, 128/99, 44/2000 and 129/2000.

The Law on Territories of Counties, Towns and Municipalities in the Republic of Croatia defines the City of Zagreb, the capital of the Republic of Croatia, as a separate territorial and administrative unit.

On the basis of article 78 of the Statute of the City of Zagreb (the official paper of the City of Zagreb, 19/99), there are 17 districts in the City of Zagreb where the citizens of the City of Zagreb reserve their right to have the local self-government.

The Croatian Parliament is competent for the naming and specification of territories of the counties, towns and municipalities, while county committees are responsible for naming and decisions on territories of settlements.

Changes in names and territories of counties, towns and municipalities are published in Narodne novine, official gazette of the Republic of Croatia, while changes in settlements are published in official papers of a particular county.

During the Census 1991 there were 102 municipalities in the Republic of Croatia, while counties were not established yet. During the Census 2001 there were 20 counties, the City of Zagreb with a special status, 122 towns and 423 municipalities in the Republic of Croatia.

All data presented through this media refer to the territorial constitution of the Republic of Croatia with the situation as on 31st March 2001.
