ABSTRACT
The author's aim has been to point out changes in population density and settlements in the Neretva Delta zone (Croatia). A special emphasis has been put on those old settlements, which were situated on the mountainous (karst-calcareous) area, and on the formation of new settlements on the junction of mountainous zone and alluvial plain, then on the alluvial plain itself. The author's intention has also been to emphasize the period when these changes happened and causes, which provoked these changes. It is incontestable that the intensity of changes is determined by contemporary economic Delta valuation expressed through modern agriculture, traffic, trade and especially port activities. All these changes have been taking place for the last thirty years since the economic aspiration in Delta moved from the mountainous area to the alluvial plain.
