In October 1991, Nikolai Tolstoy joined a Conservative Monday Club delegation, See ''The Times'', 15 November 1996, for a major interview with Tolstoy on p.18 under the auspices of the Club's Foreign Affairs Committee, and travelled to observe the war between Serbia and Croatia, the first British political delegation to observe that conflict. Conservative MPs Andrew Hunter (Andrew Hunter (British politician)), and Roger Knapman, then a junior minister in the Conservative government (and from 2002 to 2006 leader of the United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP)), were also part of the delegation which, after going to the front lines in the Sisak region, was entertained by President Franjo Tudjman and the Croatian government in Zagreb. On 13 October the group held a Press Conference at the Hotel Intercontinental in Zagreb, which apart from the media, was also attended by delegates from the French government. A report on the conflict was agreed and handed in to 10 Downing Street by Andrew Hunter.

Cluster has the red stalk (peduncle), referring to the red stem that holds the grapes to the vine. In the attempt of making the wine more approachable to an international palate, recent versions have taken well to new oak and cold fermentation. The most well known examples of Refosco come from the Colli Orientali region of Friuli. http: www.chalmersnurseries.com www varieties refoscodalpeduncolo refoscodalpeduncolo.htm Chalmers Nurseries - Refosco dal Peduncolo Rosso, accessed 2011-06-22 * Refosco d'Istria (Refosko Istriano or Refosco dal pedunculo verde) - this variety is grown in Slovenian (Slovenian wine) and Croatian parts of Istria, and around Trieste in Italy under the name of Refošk or Refosco d'Istria .

Main towns in the region include Petrinja, Glina (Glina, Croatia), Kostajnica (Hrvatska Kostajnica), and Dvor (Dvor, Croatia). The area is almost entirely located in the Sisak-Moslavina county.

'''Predrag Cvitanović''', (born 1 April 1946 in Zagreb, Croatia) is currently an endowed Professor of Physics at the Georgia Institute of Technology. Georgia Institute of Technology contact details He is highly regarded for his work in nonlinear dynamics (chaos theory), particularly his contributions to periodic orbit theory. Perhaps his best-known work is his introduction of cycle expansions—that is, expansions based on using periodic orbit theory—to approximate chaotic dynamics in a controlled perturbative (Perturbation theory) way. This technique has proven to be widely useful for diagnosing and quantifying chaotic dynamics in problems ranging from atomic physics to neurophysiology. Paltašić's works currently remain all over Europe. In southeastern Europe, the region from which he originally came, there remains 41 of his works. The majority of these are kept in Croatia, while there are three in Montenegro. On Shrove Sunday, 27 February 1960, the first organised event called ''Kurentovanje'' was held in Ptuj featuring the traditional carnival masks from Markovci lined up in a carnival procession. At the sound of music played by a local band, the ones leading the procession were dancing spearmen followed by ploughmen, »rusa«, a bear, fairies, cockerels and Kurents. The performance and customs of each traditional mask were explained to the gathered crowd via loud-speakers. The event met with tremendous success and aroused general interest which encouraged the organisers to continue. One year year later masks from Markovci were joined by ploughmen from Lancova Vas, log-haulers from Cirkovci and mourners from Hajdina. For the first time, carnival (non-ethnographic) groups presented themselves in the afternoon. In 1962 the event reached beyond local boundaries by inviting »laufarji» (‘’runners’’) from Cerkno and "borovo gostuvanje" (‘’pine wedding’’ participants) from Predanovci in the Prekmurje region. The international aspect of the event was only acquired in the years to follow when local and Slovene traditional masks were joined by masks from Croatia, Serbia, Macedonia (Republic of Macedonia), Hungary, Austria, Italy, and many more. Not only has the number of participants grown over the years, but also the number of spectators, with thousands visiting the Carnival events to marvel at the spectacular costumes and take part in the fun. The first edition appeared in Germany in 1976. Since then, the magazine has been published in Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Finland, France, Greece, Hungary, India

Tourism (Tourism in Croatia) dominates the Croatian service sector and accounts for up to 20% of Croatian GDP. Annual tourist industry income for 2011 was estimated at €6.61 billion. Its positive effects are felt throughout the economy of Croatia in terms of increased business volume observed in retail business, processing industry orders and summer seasonal employment. The industry is considered an export business, because it significantly reduces the country's external trade imbalance.
The bulk of the tourist industry is concentrated along the Adriatic Sea coast. Opatija was the first holiday resort since the middle of the 19th century. By the 1890s, it became one of the most significant European health resorts.
Croatia has unpolluted marine areas reflected through numerous nature reserves and 116 Blue Flag beaches.
