These video stock shots on Croatia cover four topics: a general presentation of Croatia; key reforms on the path to the EU; the EU and Croatia working together; and what Croatia will bring to the EU.
They feature new images of the capital Zagreb, the main political institutions, as well as some of the main coastal and inland cities, such as Split and Osijek.
They reflect the key areas in which Croatia has implemented considerable reforms on its way to EU membership: the judiciary, competition and shipyard restructuring.
The EU's support to Croatia's efforts to adopt EU standards is illustrated through a series of concrete projects in the following areas: the enhancement of Croatia's competitiveness and export potential, infrastructure projects, environmental projects, etc.
The natural wealth and beauty, cultural heritage and human potential of Croatia is illustrated through a set of examples of what Croatia will bring to the European Union once it becomes a Member.
Only the original language version is authentic and it prevails in the event of its differing from the translated versions.
