Croatia is an Eastern European country with a long coastline on the Adriatic Sea. Encompassing more than a thousands of islands, it's also crossed by the Dinaric Alps. Its inland capital, Zagreb, is distinguished by its medieval Gornji Grad (Upper Town) and diverse museums. The major coastal city of Dubrovnik has massive 16th-century walls encircling an Old Town with Gothic and Renaissance buildings.

The dinar was the currency of Croatia between December 23, 1991, and May 30, 1994. The Croatian dinar replaced the 1990 version of Yugoslav dinar at par. It was a transitional currency introduced following Croatia's declaration of independence from the Socialist Republic of Yugoslavia. The modern and the current currency in use in Croatia, “the kuna”, was introduced on May 30, 1994, starting a transitional period from the Croatian dinar, ending on December 31, 1994.

Today we are discussing Croatia's 1 Dinara banknote of 1991 . The obverse depicts the portrait of Ruder Boshkovich - Croatian mathematician, astronomer and physicist; the reverse features the Zagreb Cathedral.
