The aim of this article is to offer a concise interpretation of
the scientific data about the topic of Croatian genetic heritage that was obtained over the past 10 years. We made a
short overview of previously published articles by our and
other groups, based mostly on Y-chromosome results. The
data demonstrate that Croatian human population, as almost any other European population, represents remarkable genetic mixture. More than 3/4 of the contemporary
Croatian men are most probably the offspring of Old Europeans who came here before and after the Last Glacial
Maximum. The rest of the population is the offspring of the
people who were arriving in this part of Europe through
the southeastern route in the last 10 000 years, mostly during the neolithization process. We believe that the latest
discoveries made with the techniques for whole-genome
typing using the array technology, will help us understand
the structure of Croatian population in more detail, as well
as the aspects of its demographic history
