24sata ("24 hours") is a Croatian compact published in Zagreb with a circulation of about 150,000 copies.

24sata is the youngest daily newspaper in Croatia. It was launched by Styria Medien AG, an Austrian media group, in March 2005. Its first editor-in-chief, Matija Babić, announced that the new newspaper would target "young, urban and modern" audiences. It is currently sold at a price of 5 kn (about $0.90).

However, the first issue of 24sata seemed to be nothing more than the first Croatian daily tabloid newspaper. However, within 6 months it managed to firmly establish its position as the third daily newspaper in Croatia in terms of circulation (after Večernji list and Jutarnji list). This success was due partly to the attractive price.

After Matija Babić was removed from the post of editor-in-chief on July 5, 2005, Boris Trupčević became the new editor in chief. Before he joined 24 sata he was publisher of Sanoma Magazines in Croatia.
