The Government of Croatia has released the list of official non-working public holidays in Croatia for the upcoming calendar year 2013, unchanged in the number of holidays as compared to previous years.

Apparently, the aforementioned list of 2013 non-working public holidays in Croatia have not been affected despite the Government of Croatia's announcement, earlier this year (2012-02-09), that it was considering the elimination of 3 annual non-working public holidays, and subsequent polls showing public support for the measure (2012-03-06).

The 3 Croatian annual public holidays that were (are?) facing elimination are: the Feast of Corpus Christi (late May or early June), the Anti-Fascist Resistance Day (June 22), and the National Day (June 25).

Interestingly the list does not include either the Epiphany public holiday, restored a decade ago (2002-01-29), or the August 5, Victory and Homeland Thanksgiving Day, public holiday which has been the source of much tension with Croatia's neighbors over the years (2010-02-21 and 2007-08-05).
