On Thursday, Croatia became the latest country to join the Schengen Area, the world’s largest free travel zone. Croatia is the 26th member of the Schengen Area, which allows for the removal of internal borders and unrestricted movement within the region.
The Schengen Area is made up of 26 European countries, including Austria, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Portugal, Spain, and Switzerland. It was established in 1985 and has since become one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world.
Croatia's entry into the Schengen Area marks a major milestone in the country's efforts to promote tourism and business opportunities. The move will enable citizens of Croatia to travel freely within the Schengen Area and will make it easier for businesses to operate across borders.
The entry of Croatia into the Schengen Area is also expected to boost the country's economy. According to experts, the move will increase the number of foreign tourists visiting the country and will result in more jobs and investments.
The Schengen Area is the world’s largest free travel zone and is a symbol of European unity. It has enabled citizens of the region to travel without visas for decades and has become one of the most important areas for international trade and investment.
Croatia's accession to the Schengen Area is also a major step forward in the country's efforts to join the European Union. The country is expected to complete the process of joining the Union in the next few years.
With the entry of Croatia, the Schengen Area now covers almost 1.5 million square kilometers, making it the world’s largest free travel zone. The move will benefit both citizens and businesses, and is expected to boost the country's economic growth.
