Experience historical Croatia from ancient to modern times

If you are a history buff, Croatia is the right place for you. It's home to one the largest and most abundant collection of Neanderthal remains found at a single locality in the world. If that is not enough, how about the Vučedol Neolitic culture that spurred from one of the oldest continuously inhabited towns in Europe.

We can't forget it's home to the sixth largest Roman amphitheater in the world or that the territory of Croatia was a birthplace of at least 3 Roman emperors.

The early medieval period is characterised by a lot of turbulence and the arrival of the Croatians. Constantly defending their territory, Croatians gained a reputation of being fearsome warriors. We even got nicknamed "The Wall Of Christianity” for holding the line while numerous invaders tried to break into Europe.

Development of Croatia has largely been influenced by the Austrians, Hungarians, and Italians. This is evident through the cuisine, architecture and also within the dialects.

Croatia also played an important role during the Second World War. One of the first resistance movements was founded in Croatia, led by Tito, the lifetime president of Yugoslavia.

Not all history is ancient, the 1990's were marked by the grievous Homeland war and the fight for our independence.
