Croatia is again getting ready for the 66th edition of the Eurovision Song Contest and is undeniably in high spirits. As HRT recently posted, “The beautiful September weather only contributes to the preparations for Dora and Eurovision 2022, which are in full swing! The Croatian national final for the Eurovision Song Contest will begin soon, so stay with us for more information.”
Since the country’s debut in 1993, Dora has been used to select Croatia’s entry for Eurovision except between 2012 to 2018 when Croatia had undergone a series of internal selections and withdrawals. In 2019, Dora returned and has been used ever since.
According to Eurovoix, Dora 2022 is expected to take place in Opatija. The city has hosted all editions of the show except in 2011. Opatija and HRT signed a three-year deal to host Glazbeni Dani Hrvatske Radiotelevizije, which Dora is a part of.
Last year, Albina was chosen to represent Croatia in the 2021 Eurovision Song Contest with the song “Tick-Tock”. With the votes of the jury and public, the song made it in the top ten but landed 11th in the semi-final and did not qualify for the finals.
This year’s Eurovision Song Contest will take place in Italy on May 22 following their victory with Maneskin’s “Zitti e buoni” at the 2021 Eurovision contest.
