The Idea of Croatia
What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you think of Croatia? Is it the beautiful aquamarine Adriatic coast, breathtaking view of Plitvice lakes and Krka or some of the prominent Croatian athletes such as Janica Kostelić or Dražen Petrović?
No matter what you thought of, there are no wrong answers. There is no common idea of Croatia, a small country with so much diversity woven into its every pore. The idea of Croatia is the emotion you get when you truly experience being in Croatia for a while and learning about it along the way. You can wander through the streets of Zagreb, Dubrovnik, Split, Zadar, Pula and many other places and feel all the historical turn points that took place on these very spots, from Roman times all the way to recent events.
The idea of Croatia is a variety of delicious dishes originating from diverse Croatian regions as well as excellent Croatian wines that are known worldwide.
The idea of Croatia is all the Croats that made the world a better place such as Ruđer Bošković, Faust Vrančić, Ivan Vučetić and others.
Remember Croatia next time you’ll be putting on a tie or writing with an ink ball pen, and it would be all impossible without Croatia and its people.
The idea of Croatia is a term everyone is free to create for themselves because there are so many things that can make you think of Croatia.
