Walking Holidays in Croatia

Croatia, officially the Republic of Croatia (Republika Hrvatska), is a sovereign state poised between the Balkans and Central Europe. Its capital city is Zagreb, home to the most museums per square foot than any other city in the world. These museums showcase some of the most cherished artefacts from Europe’s history and are both intriguing and shocking in equal measure. Croatia officially became a member of the European Union on 1st July 2013. Croatia’s weather is diverse with mostly continental and Mediterranean climates. It has a population of 4.28 million, most of whom are Croats. This land has been passed between competing kingdoms, empires and republics for centuries resulting in a rich cultural legacy being left behind. From Roman columns to Napoleonic forts, Croatia is abundant with historic treasures. In particular, Croatia still has a very prominent Italian influence. This is primarily apparent in their exquisite local cuisine and the fact that Italian is still very much so their second language.

The Croatian flag’s colours were inherited from the country’s coat of arms. Unofficially, the colours the flag represent the three symbols of Croatian history and people – the red symbolises the blood of Croatian martyrs, the white symbolises the peaceful lamb-like nature of Croatia and the blue represents the Croatian devotion to God. The checkerboard in the middle of the coat of arms is the symbol of the kings of Croatia, the five coats above it represent the historical regions which Croatia was originated.
