About us

The Association of Municipalities in the Republic of Croatia is a non-profit, non-governmental and non-partisan organisation founded on the principle of voluntary association. It was established by the Croatian municipalities with the purpose to promote and protect their common interests. The Association has been established on June 19 2002 in Zagreb, based on the Law on Associations and Law on Local and Regional Self-Government which allows the local government units to establish associations in order to promote and achieve their common goals and interest (Article 12, Section 2). Organisational forerunner of the today's Association was Municipal Assembly which acted as a temporary sub-unit of the former Association of Towns and Municipalities of the Republic of Croatia between 1993 and 2000. However, true origins of the Association as we know it today date back to 1975 when Union of Towns of Socialist Republic of Croatia was transformed into Association of Towns and Municipalities of the Republic of Croatia.
In 2018 Association of Municipalities counts 305 municipalities from across all 20 counties.
