HISTORY OF THE CROATIAN DORA
The DORA has been the national final chosen by the Balkan country to elect its representatives since the disappearance of Yugoslavia and the participation of Croatia for the first time independently in 1992, having held a total of 22 editions to date.
This year, the 23rd edition of the festival will be held in Opatija, which has given very diverse results to the country, highlighting as its best results the 4th place achieved in the 1996 Eurovision finals with Maja Blagdan and her ‘Sveta ljubav‘ and the same position in 1999 with Doris Dragović and her ‘Marija Magdalena‘.
The winner of the 2021 edition of DORA was Albina with her song ‘Tick-Tock‘ with which she won the carism of the Croatian public and got their gold ticket to Eurovision 2021 in Rotterdam, where she did not get the pass to the final after finishing in 11th position, thus chaining the third consecutive year that the Balkan country remained in the semifinals of Eurovision.
