Map of Croatian municipalities: 7/5/2013 13:06:58

Lots of maps are aesthetically good looking and fun to play, but they have 'dull' shape - you can only move from east to west, north to south and opposite. But, few days ago I found this interesting map of Croatian municipalities and towns. This map looks fun because it also has many islands. I'm not asking for anyone to create this map (yet :D), but if it ever comes true I can help with naming. For now, I just want to ask what do you think about this map.

I don't get how this map is different from the others. Unless you mean that you can travel from one island to any other?

I think that this map makes movement even less possible. It would not be a bad map, but the reason that you want to have more directions to move in, is not really a good one on this map.

North to south is harder and there are two south points now. from South to east is impossible, you'll have to go trough the north. It would not be a bad map, but movement is even less on this one :p

Min34: Yes, you're right. Dalmatia (south of Croatia) is very narrow and there's no movement in that part, therefore is suggest:
1.Adding connections between east Croatia (Slavonia) and Dalmatia
or
2. Have you ever played on map of France? On that map, Bruxelles, Luxembourg, Andorra and Monaco, thought not parts of France, added on that map and marked with a pentagon. So, why not add few Bosnian cities on that map to connect Slavonia and Dalmatia? Historically, Bosnia and Herzegovina was a part of Croatia, so it would still be logical if they would be added on that map. With them, also there could be added more cities that were in possesion of Croatia or where Croats are a significant minority (e.g. Burgenland in Austria, Molise in Italia, Crasovo in Romania, Kotor in Montenegro etc.)

anti-joker: Lololololo. I actually thought of a distribution mode where every player could be one of the national minority in Croatia, so that would be Serbs in Lika (between Dalmatia and central Croatia) and eastern Slavonia, Italians in Istria (the western most county of Croatia and the biggest peninsula in Croatia), Czechs in the city of Daruvar, Hungarians in Baranya and so on.

I actually tried making this map a long time ago, but it was impossible to find the names.

I checked the Croatian wiki, but all it did was give the names of them and their rough location. What I need is a map of Croatia with the municipalities named.

Maybe visiting web-sites of Croatian counties (županije) would help?

I have tried the websites of the provinces (well, Dubrovnik at least) and it has no map either :(

Those you call 'provinces' are counties and there are 20 of them (21 if you count the city of Zagreb)

Okay then, in my language they are translated as provinces.
But there's still no clue to finding maps of named municipalities.

This might help (Istria county/Istarska županija)




Since it's low-quality when I post it here I'll give you link, too, where you can better see names: http://www.istra-istria.hr/pic/karte/1_Opcine.gif

Note: on some municipalities there are two names (one on Croatian, one on Italian)

If you can find such maps for all the counties I'll give it a shot (I still have to find a map for Dubrovnik).

14 and 15 are not clear enough, and a few individual municipalities on other pictures are hard to see as well, especially for someone not familiar with the Croatian way of writing (I can't even find the háček on my keyboard).
12 doesn't even show up on my screen.
And the main problem with Dubrovnik-Neretva is currently what islands belong to what municipality. Take Lastovo. There's a few small islands west of it, and I don't know if they belong to Lastovo or Vela Luka.
But I'll start drawing the territories on the mainland, I hope you can help me if I am having problems with a single municipality.

Your questions:
Here are pictures of 12, 14 and 15:
12. Brod-Posavina County

14. Krapina-Zagorje County

15 Koprivnica-Križevci County


Croatian characters, alphabetically: čćđšž

Island western of Lastovo is called Sušac ad it is not habitated, but I think it belongs to Lastovo.

What do you mean by 'háček'?

Haha, I thought háček was a Croatian word. It basically means the little mark above the č, š and ž. An inverted ^. The problem is that I can't find them on my keyboard, and thus I'd need to copy and paste every name that has them in it. But I think I can find the Unicode for them, so I can still type the letters, although it will be a work-around.
And there's more islands I'm not sure of. I've just finished Istria, and I can't find out what municipality the Brijuni islands belong to.

Also, because Croatian counties contain so many municipalities, I split them in bonuses of twelve municipalities or less, and make a superbonus for the county. I name the parts of counties after the biggest city they contain.
Here you can see what I did with Istria:

The text is only temporary of course.

And there's the issue with Zagreb: keeping it as a single county/municipality/whatever it is will be a very bizarre and unbalanced feature to the map. So I need to divide it, but when I looked for Zagreb subdivisions, I only found the city districts (gradska četvrt). And they're too small. So I wondered, could you translate North Zagreb, South Zagreb, East Zagreb and West Zagreb to Croatian for me? I wouldn't trust this to Google translate ;-). And if you could find any subdivisions for Zagreb that divide it into 3-6 parts that would be great too :-).
