Statehood Day is a holiday that occurs every year on 25 June in Croatia to celebrate the country’s 1991 declaration of independence from Yugoslavia. The Statehood Day is the national day of Croatia, being both an official holiday and a day off work.
By adopting the constitutional decision on Croatia’s sovereignty and independence, and the declaration on the proclamation of sovereign and independent Croatia, parliament confirmed on 25 June 1991 the Croatian people’s will for the establishment of an independent state.
We celebrate it with a beautiful song “Moja Domovina”, in English “My Homeland“, that shows how stunningly beautiful this country is.
Happy Statehood Day!
I think of you every day
I hear the news and count the steps
In our hearts there is restlessness, and in us there is love
It has only one truth
Every star shines for you
The stone is breaking, the song is travelling
A thousand generations are not sleeping tonight
The entire world is with us now
My homeland, my homeland
It has the strength of golden wheat
It has eyes the colour of the sea
My land, Croatia
I will come back, I must come, this is my home
My sun, my sky
A new day is awakening, conquers like happiness
You are here with us
