More information about the counties

The word county is borrowed from the Slavic župa and Croatian županija. Historically, a župa in the Slavic settlement area was the name for a family group living together. From the early Middle Ages onwards, the word referred to small-scale territorial areas among the southern and western Slavs. Especially in Croatia and Serbia, the term counties was used throughout the Middle Ages. From the year 1000, counties were also set up as regional administrative units in the newly formed Hungarian Kingdom. In German usage, these administrative districts were mostly referred to as Komitate in the Middle Ages. Up to the present day three of the successor states of the Kingdom of Hungary have retained the traditional meaning of the counties. Croatia is one of them. The modern country of Croatia is divided into a total of 21 counties. 20 of them are rural areas. The city of Zagreb is the 21st county and the most densely populated with 1217 inhabitants per square kilometer. The least populated is Lika-Senj County (belongs to this county Novalja) with an average of only 10 inhabitants per square kilometer. Zagreb (as the Croatian capital) is also the county with the highest population of 779,145 inhabitants. Split-Dalmatia County has the second highest population with 463,676 inhabitants. The county with the largest area is Lika-Senj with 5.50 square kilometers. The second largest county is Split-Dalmatia with 4,524 square kilometers. The smallest county in Croatia is Zagreb with only 641 square kilometers.
