Croatia in Eurovision

Croatia has participated in the Eurovision Song Contest 27 times since their debut in 1993. Croatia's first victory in Eurovision is yet to come. The best result is two 4th place finishes; in 1996 (Maja Blagdan - "Sveta Ljubav") and 1999 (Doris Dragovic - "Marija Magdalena").

Since the introduction of the Semi-finals in 2004, Croatia has qualified for the Grand Final 7 out of 16 times. They withdrew from Eurovision 2014 and 2015 due to financial limitations and poor results in the contest.
