Croatians will be heading to the polls to choose a president that will lead them into the European Union.

Ivo Josipovic, a law professor and classical music composer, led in the first round of elections with 32 per cent of the vote, which was double the number of votes received by Milan Bandic, the mayor of Zagreb.

The presidential elections come at an important time in Croatia's history since they are close to completing a long-cherished ambition of joining the European Union.
