The Montenegrins of Croatia are a national minority in the republic. According to the 2011 census, there are 4,517 ethnic Montenegrins in Croatia. The highest number of Montenegrins in Croatia is in the Croatian capital Zagreb.

Montenegrins are officially recognized as an autochthonous national minority, and as such, they elect a special representative to the Croatian Parliament, shared with members of four other national minorities.[1]

History[edit]

In 1657, the Doge of Venice, Bertuccio Valiero, decided to resettled the town Peroj with five families( Brcela, Draković, Brajić, Vučeta, and Ljubotina) from the Cernizza region in Montenegro. Following the Cretan War of 1645–1669, twenty other families originally from Montenegro migrated to Peroj. Today is Peroj a center of the Montenegrins in Istria County.
