Croatia–Russia relations (Russian: Российско-хорватские отношения, Croatian: Rusko-hrvatski odnosi) refer to bilateral foreign relations between Croatia and Russia. Both countries established diplomatic relations on May 25, 1992. Croatia has an embassy in Moscow and an honorary consulate in Kaliningrad. Russia has an embassy in Zagreb.

Though geographically not very close, Croatia and Russia are both Slavic countries and thus share certain cultural and linguistic similarities. Both countries are full members of the Council of Europe and the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe.

Russian tourists regularly visit Croatia on summer holidays, and Croatian tourists often visit Russia on city trips. Many Russians have purchased real estate along Croatia's Adriatic coast, while several Croatian travel agencies offer package tours of Moscow and Saint Petersburg.
