Abstract This analysis should contribute towards concretization of the debate about accession of Croatia to the European Union. It purpose is to explain, inform and enable a deeper insight into perspectives which are opening up to Croatia as a candidate country for membership in the EU. The analysis however does not undermine the fears and the prejudices of the citizens but it confronts them. The citizen's fears shoud be taken seriously since accession to the EU represents the only realistic option for the future of Croatia. Furthermore, for its neighbours from the former Yugoslavia Croatia already represents an important bridge towards the EU. Its accession is therefore in the interest of the whole region, as potential regional conflicts can face a long term solution only within the EU.
