Located in Southeastern Europe bordering the Adriatic Sea, Croatia consists of over four million people. The natives are called Croats and make up the majority of the population, the remaining portions of the population are a mix of Serbs, Hungarians, and Gypsies. The Croats are family oriented people and have very close relationships with their extended families. Croatians take in their elderly parents rather than sending them to nursing homes when they become unable to live independently. Students pursuing their studies in Croatia join in and spend their weekends for family bonding and keeping their culture alive with songs, costumes, dancing, cultural rituals and folk tales.
