Croatia: Culture and Arts
The New Riviera
Thanks to historic events and mixing of different cultures, Croatia has an abundance of cultural and historic monuments from different periods. There is clear influence of Mediterranean culture and one can marvel at numerous monuments from Ancient and Roman times, the Early Middle Ages and Romanesque heritage or see the impact of more modern historic events reflected in architecture and culture. There are numerous world famous prehistoric sites, old towns, fortifications and castles from the Late Middle Ages, as well as cultural monuments and buildings to experience. Museums such as Dubrovnik's Cultural Historical Museum, the City Museum of Split or Zagreb's Museum of Contemporary Art are well worth exploring and are cheap to visit at around €1 to €2 Euros per person.
