Croatia in Eurovision Song Contest

Croatia 2017: Jacques Houdek - "My Friend"

Croatia has participated in Eurovision Song Contest 26 times since its debut in 1993. The first victory for Croatia in Eurovision is yet to come. The best result is two 4th places in 1996 (Maja Blagdan - "Sveta Ljubav") and 1999 (Doris Dragovic - "Marija Magdalena").

Since the introduction of Semi-finals in 2004 Croatia qualified for the Grand Final 7 out of 15 times. They withdrew from Eurovision 2014 and 2015 due to financial limitations and poor results in the contest.
