Croatia has become the 28th member of the European Union, a major milestone which comes some 20 years after the small country won independence in a bloody civil war.

The Republic joins the EU two decades after declaring independence from federal Yugoslavia, a step that triggered four years of war in which some 20,000 people died.

Not everyone is celebrating. Fishermen fear that EU regulations could have a severe impact on their livelihood while tourism sees the move as a positive one for the country.
