History of Croatia

The ancestors of the Croatians came in the 6th century in these lands. Croatia first appeared as two duchies in the 7th century, the Duchy of Croatia and the Duchy of Pannonian Croatia. Which were united and elevated into the Kingdom of Croatia which lasted from 925 until 1918. From the 12th century, the Kingdom of Croatia entered a Personal Union with the Kingdom of Hungary. It remained a distinct state with its ruler (ban) and Sabor. But it elected Royal dynasties from neighboring powers, primarily Hungary, Naples, and the Habsburg Monarchy. The period from the 15th to the 17th centuries was marked by bitter struggles with the Ottoman Empire. Croatia regained independence in 1991.

Highlights Of Port Towns in Croatia

Dubrovnik; Often described as ‘the Pearl of the Adriatic’, Dubrovnik is an absolutely gorgeous city to visit in Croatia. Lying at the foot of Mount Srd which towers above it, Dubrovnik’s stunning setting makes for fantastic viewing as its distinctive walls surrounding the picturesque old town jut out into the beautiful blue waters around it.

Split; A fantastic place to visit, Split is the second-largest city in Croatia and has charm and elegance in abundance. Originally the palace of Roman Emperor Diocletian. The city slowly grew from these auspicious beginnings into the Split we know today although the remains of Diocletian’s Palace itself are still the undoubted highlight.

Zadar; Located on a small peninsula, this lively city is a lovely mix of old and new. Although it lacks the museum-like quality of some other Adriatic cities; it certainly has its charms. With Roman ruins, thirty-four old churches and a plethora of historic buildings to be found in the old town, wandering around its center is a peaceful endeavor.

Pula; With a wealth of historical sites dating back to the Romans, Pula has some lovely sights for visitors to enjoy. The undoubted crown jewel is the impressive Roman amphitheater that dominates the center of the city and there are numerous other historical sites of interest nearby.

Sibenik; With its incredible cathedral, beautiful beaches, and medieval old town, Sibenik is an up and coming destination that is becoming increasingly trendy due to the music festivals that it hosts in an old Croatian fortress.

We wish you a nice, beautiful, and healthy holiday as a Guletbookers Family.
