Culture and History
The Croatian cultural heritage is enriched by hundreds of castles, forts, villas and manors. In the past, they were built as guardians from the enemy at intersections of roads. Most of them have been greatly ravaged by time, but many have been preserved almost entirely. Some of them are real jewels of cultural, historical and architectural heritage.
Gastronomy and enology
The continental cuisine is typical for its early proto-Slavic roots and more recent contacts with established schools of gastronomy – Hungarian, Viennese, and Turkish. Meat products, freshwater fish and vegetables dominate. The coastal region is characterized by the influences of the Greeks, Romans, Illyrians and later Mediterranean cuisines – Italian and French.
Croatia is one of the ecologically best preserved parts of Europe. It is a land where the hues of the sunny and warm Mediterranean happily blend with the tranquillity and freshness of mountains and the gentle sway of the golden plains of Pannonia.
