What was the last country to join the European Union?

  • The United Kingdom
  • Spain
  • Malta
  • Croatia correct

    Well, you know who the last country to leave the European Union was but did you know Croatia was the last to join? In 2013, Croatia was looking for a recession bail-out and was hoping to walk straight into the comforting embrace of the European Union. However, things haven't turned out so well for the newest member. They haven't exactly had money falling from the sky since they joined and hit their 6th year in recession at the beginning of 2016. Though it looks like it has been steadily inclining this year, the U.K. peace-out isn't going to make things any easier for the small country. Just the thought has us reaching for the sljivovica!
