Croatian Culture & History

The beauty of Croatia has been captured in countless books, paintings and photographs. "The gods wanted to crown their creation and the last day they turned tears, stars and the sea breeze into the isles of Kornati". Thus spoke George Bernard Shaw, referring to the largest archipelago in the Mediterranean. Few people realise that Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night" takes place here, or that Carlo Goldoni, Jack London, Eugene Ionesco, to name but a few, were enchanted by the beauty of the Croatian landscape. The famous master of plots and intrigues Agatha Christie also had a good reason to find a special place in her heart for Dubrovnik and Split: she spent her second honeymoon there.

The Fantastical World of Croatian Naive Art - Scholars have referred to "the miracle of Croatian naïve art," and there is certainly an almost miraculous story behind its development. The "movement" began in the northern isolated Croatian village of Hlebine. These humble, minimally educated artists began to paint for their own enjoyment during the long, oppressive winters when they could not farm and were forced to spend most of their time indoors. Many of the paintings, then, reflect in part what they saw from their windows, but they frequently transformed these rural scenes into dreamscapes. They escaped their loneliness and isolation through wonderful flights of imagination.

The Neck Tie-Cravat - As millions around the world dress to go to work each day or to go out for the evening, most probably do not realize that a major accessory of their wardrobe, the necktie, or kravata, is Croatia's contribution to the world of fashion.
