The counties of Croatia (Croatian: županije) are the first-level administrative divisions of the Republic of Croatia.[1] Croatia is divided into 20 counties and the capital city of Zagreb, which is both a county and a city. It is separate from Zagreb County.[2][3] The counties are divided into 128 cities and 428 municipalities.[4][5]

The counties are governed by county assemblies (Croatian: županijska skupština). Members of the county assembly are elected for a four-year term.[6]
