Little about Croatia

About Croatia

In Croatia, where the Mediterranean, the mountains and the Pannonian plains come together in a unique harmony of natural beauty, within just a little more than a hundred kilometres, you can come across excitingly different landscapes.

The Adriatic, with one of the most indented coastlines in Europe with its 1,185 islands and islets, of which only 66 are inhabited, is undoubtedly the most popular tourist destination. Continental Croatia, however, also abounds in beauty: it is a land of forests, rivers rich in fish, swift mountain streams and deep gorges of Gorski Kotar, and the magnificent Plitvice Lakes in Lika. It is a land of golden wheat fields, oak woods and wide rivers of Slavonia and Baranja, a land of quaint little villages, romantic castles and manors, and picturesque rolling hills and vineyards of the Croatian Zagorje.

The most popular possibilities for travel and tourism, of course, is summer tourism. You can also enjoy the benefits of rural tourism in many of the villages in the continental region of Croatia, as well as of health tourism in a number of spas and thermal and mineral springs, such as Varazdinske, Tuheljske, Stubicke and Krapinske spas, Lipik, Daruvar or Topusko in the continental region, and along the coast : Losinj, Umag, Opatija, Crikvenica, Hvar, Makarska, Vela Luka and Istarske Spa in Istria.

If you are a gourmet and a connoisseur of fine food, or simply like tasty and healthy food, you will certainly more than enjoy Croatia. Another attraction certainly worth exploring are Croatia's wine cellars. Red wines are best along the coast - Teran, Cabernet and Merlot in Istria and Opolo, Plavac, Dingac and Postup in Dalmatia. In the coastal area, some quality white wines are also produced, such as Pinot, Malvazija, Kujundzusa and White Muskat, while continental Croatia produces Traminac, Burgundac, Graševina and Kraljevina.

The Republic of Croatia is a European country situated along the Adriatic Sea and its hinterland. It stretches from the slopes of the Alps and deep into the Pannonian Valley to the banks of the Danube and Drava rivers.

Thus according to its natural characteristics, as well as its cultural and historical development, Croatia can be divided into three geographically distinct zones:

the Coastal region
the Mountain region
the Pannonian region

Like many countries in Western Europe, Croatia was founded on the ruins of the Roman Empire. When they arrived in the territory of present-day Croatia, the Croats were politicaly organized in principalities. In 925, Croatian King Tomislav united the principalities, establishing the first Croatian state. Later, Croatia retained its legal status and autonomy within the framework of the Hungarian empire, and the Habsburg Monarchy.

Ako vas muci przenje,pecenje ribe u stanu,ako mrzite sto vam od plave ribe/koja je zdrava,ukusna i jeftina/cijela kuca zaudara na ribu do iduceg petka,onda je za vas idealan ovaj recept.


Najvaznije je otic i kupit sasvim svjeze lokarde iz Jadranskog mora...dakle sutra oko deset sati krenite na peskariju!Ako zivite u Zg mozete krenit i oko 9,dodje vec vecina ribe na Dolac do 9 sati!
Koliko ce vam komada lokardi trebat odlucite sami,al imajte na umu da lokarda nesmije bit mrsavica,one bez naslaga masnoca nisu ukusne i socne,vec suhe i neukusne!
Trkom kuci s peskarije,ocistite lokarde,posto cete ih spremat u pecnici slobodno ih mozete i oprat,zasolite,zauljite i nek malo stanu
Vi u medjuvremenu pokupite svo povrce sto imate u kuci i obavezno nekoliko komada zrele rajcice!
Kod mene je obavezna i puna zlica vegete,al to je kod mene jer ja volim okus koji daje vegeta.
U skrovadu polozite kumpir izrezan na ploske, paprike,crveni luk,tikvice,balancane,pome,karote,zacine,…
