Croatia at the Eurovision Song Contest
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.
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.
Between 2010 and 2022, Croatia have qualified to the Grand Final just twice, in 2016 and 2017.
