Croatia made its debut in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1993. Prior to this, Croatia participated in the Eurovision Song Contest as part of Yugoslavia.

Croatia participated in the Eurovision Song Contest for the first time in 1993 after qualifying from the pre-selection show, Kvalifikacija za Millstreet. The country is located on the eastern side of the Adriatic Sea, across from Italy on the western side.
Between 1993 and 2011, the Croatian entry was selected using the national final Dora. Since then Croatia has opted for an internal selection. To date the best placing for Croatia is fourth, which it achieved in 1996 and 1999. The country has yet to win the Eurovision Song Contest although the Croatian band Riva won the Eurovision Song Contest in 1989 which meant that the contest was held in Croatia's capital, Zagreb, in 1990.
