It also examines the situation at the lowest levels of government in Croatia i.e. in a city, with the purpose of presenting the current financial situation and recognizing the key problems connected with decentralization at this level of government. It has been established that Croatia has made a remarkable progress in its decentralization process, although there are still many shortcomings that need to be removed.
