Once again Croatia has found its place on a TOP 10 world list. This time it is a list about the tallest men in the world. Croatia is well known as a nation with a lot of tall men and a study carried out by a public research university from London confirmed that fact.
The results of a recent study made by researchers from London's Imperial College published in the journal eLife, shows that Croatian men are the 7th tallest men on the planet.
The top of this list is reserved for Dutch men with an average height of 183 centimeters, followed by men from Belgium, Estonia, Latvia, Denmark, Bosnia and Hezegovina. Croatians are in the 7th place followed by Serbia, Iceland and the Czech Republic. This study also shows the position all these nations had when the last study was carried out in 1914. At the beginning of the 20th century men from Sweden had the heighest ranking on the TOP 10 of world's tallest men whilst Croatians placed as the 22nd on the survey list more than a century ago.
On the other hand, the shortest men in the world are from East Timor or Timor-Leste with an average height of 157,5 centimeters.
When it comes to women, the list is topped by Latvians with an average height of 170 centimeters, followed by women from Netherlands, Estonia, the Czech Republic, Serbia, Slovakia, Denmark, Lithuania, Belarus and Ukraine.
Croatian women do not feature in this TOP 10 list, they are the 18th tallest women on the planet.
The world smallest women are from Guatemala with an average height barely close to 150 centimeters.
