Zagreb – Capitale della cravatta
Nel Seicento (1618-48), durante la guerra di Trent'anni la cavalleria leggera croata nell'esercito reale francese godeva di fama per l'eccezionale eroismo e bravura militare, ma si faceva anche riconoscere per un dettaglio “à la mode” - vistoso fazzoletto legato intorno al collo. Quel fazzoletto annodato viene sopranominato dal nome etnico dei Croati (in tedesco Krabatten oppure in antico francese Cravattes) – cravatta. Nelle formazioni dell'esercito reale francese fu istituito nel 1664 il reggimento croato Royal Cravattes. Oggi, quasi quattro secoli dopo, nella parte vecchia di Zagreb (Zagabria), i turisti possono assistere da vivo al cambio della guardia del Reggimento Cravattes, una formazione ispiratasi dalla famosa unità militare storica croata.

Ogni cambio della guardia comincia con l’interessante cerimonia di preparazione della guardia e d'ispezione delle armi. La formazione è composta da 12 soldati in originale divisa di quattro secoli fa con il fazzoletto annodato, di seguito chiamato la cravatta. La guardia è collocata nelle tre prestigiose località cittadine: Piazza S. Marco, Piazza di Bano Josip Jelačić e accanto alla statua della Madonna a Kaptol. Con questa iniziativa Zagreb ha intenzione di promuoversi come la capitale della cravatta, con lo scopo di far diventare quella insolita attrazione storico-culturale un richiamo interessante per tutti coloro che visitano la capitale, patria della cravatta.
