Miss Croatia World (also known as Miss Hrvatske or Miss Croatia) is an annual national beauty pageant held in Croatia to select a representative for the Miss World pageant. The pageant has been held since 1992 and the winner selected is not on the basis of good looks, but how active the contestant is in charitable activities.
Since the beginning, the Miss Croatia winners have maintained great results at the Miss World pageant. In 1993, Fani Capalija Miss Croatia World 1993 was adjudged the third runner-up at the Miss World pageant. Similarly Branka Bebic Miss Croatia 1994 and Anica Martinovic Miss Croatia 1995 were placed fourth runner-up and first runner-up respectively. However, since then, Croatia has never reached the runners-up slot and managed to be placed in the Top 15 in (1999) and Top 16 in (2008).
