This is a list of mountains ( ) in Croatiamarker.

The highest mountains in Croatia belong to the Dinarides range that is sometimes also called Dinaric Alps, of which Dinara is the highest mountain in Croatia. Together with the easternmost parts of the Alps, these mountains span most of the country, and their orogenic activity started in the Paleozoic with the Variscan orogeny and continued in the Mesozoic and Cenozoic with the Alpine orogeny.

The mountains in the northeastern part of the country, in the Pannonian plain, are considerably older than the rest as their orogeny happened in the Paleozoic.

Mountains in the list are ordered by height.
