Croatia, a destination with a thousand landscapes!
Croatia is a country with many faces with its long coastal strip,
dinaric mountains and Pannonian Plains.
The coastline has a Mediterranean climate with rocky landscapes and vegetation of scruborororory or scrubland. Many small villages have kept the spirit of ancient times. The mountains are home to pearls of nature shaped by the meeting of elements such as the lakes of Plitvice. The fertile continental plains to the Danube are rich in baroque and feudal architecture.
Croatia is a territory
where each stone tells a story…
History that often goes back a long way in the past, because the Adriatic Sea, a Mediterranean bay between the Italian Boot and the Balkan peninsula, was an important trade route until the 17th century. Indeed, it represented the link between Europe and Asia Minor. Path already used by the ancient Celts, when they appear around 3000 BC in the north of the Balkans, then recovered by the Greeks, then by the Romans and finally by the Croats when they arrive in the 7th century AD.
Thus the origin of coastal cities often goes back far in antiquity. The city of Trogir was a former Greek colony, also known for its exceptional cathedral. Downtown Split is located within the walls of the Roman palace of Emperor Diocletian, still readable today, rebuilt through the ages to give a magma of architectural styles still boiling.
This story is conditioned by the great opportunity represented by the islands of Croatia, 1200 islands, one of the highest concentrations of islands in the world compared to the coastal linear!
In addition, these islands have a special configuration: long, thin and they are all in a row, forming lines of islands and thus navigation channels that will attract traffic from this commercial route.
This issue also explains the lusts, especially those of Byzantis and especially of Venice.
The Balkans is an area of passage where religious phenomena, civilizations have met throughout history.
Bosnia and Herzegovina
is another world, on the other side of the border separating the cultures of Europe and Asia Minor, as shown by the cities Sarajevo or Mostar whose famous bridge was called “the link between East and West
The city of Dubrovnik is a very original historical phenomenon, a small system that has taken advantage of its heritage to develop a commercial city-state of great wealth, rivalling Venice for the control of the commercial space of the Adriatic Sea.
Through its diplomacy, the system of the Republic of Dubrovnik has managed to preserve its freedom through the centuries and to enrich itself both financially and culturally. The harmony of architecture puts man at the centre and transports him in all his greatness. A unique experience.
Montenegro is a country in the south of Croatia. It marks the border between the northern Balkans with A European Catholic tradition and the Southern Orthodox Balkans long under Byzantine influence.
It offers beautiful mountain landscapes bordering the coastline with free coastal trading towns such as Kotor and Budva.
Slovenia is at the meeting of the dinaric chains that make up the Balkans and the Alps. It is one of the greenest countries in Europe containing with many treasures in its basement such as the caves of Postojna or Kocjan.
Its character is marked by its mountain climate and the influences of the powers of central Europe.
