Roman Ruins in Croatia

Split

The most important monument in Split is the Diocletian’s Palace dating back from 305 A.D. The Palace was built as a massive structure, with its 200 meters long and 20 meters high walls. It was built for the Roman Emperor Diocletian, as his residence after the retirement. Underneath the Palace, there are Diocletian’s cellars that lead from the Riva waterfront to the Imperial square Peristil, the colonnade ornamented plaza with two sphinxes from Egypt. Peristil also formed the northern access to the imperial apartments and it gave access to Diocletian’s mausoleum on the east and to three temples on the west. An interesting fact is that Diocletian was a great persecutor of the Christians, and over his mausoleum, stands today a beautiful Cathedral of St. Domnius, patron saint of Split, martyred during the persecutions of Emperor Diocletian.

Island of Lokrum

The Island of Lokrum is a small island in front of the city of Dubrovnik. The legend has it that in 1192, Richard the Lionheart after a shipwreck found a shelter on the island of Lokrum and as a sign of gratitude he provided money to the citizens of Dubrovnik for finishing the Cathedral in the city.

Although the island is really small, there are several interesting attractions that you can visit, like the Benedictine monastery, built in the early 11th century and deserted 8 centuries later, after the expulsion of the Benedictines by the French. The monastery was heavily destroyed by the massive earthquake that hit the area in the 17th century. The island was bought in 1859 by the Austrian Archduke Maximilian Ferdinand of Hapsburg who built a luxurious residence near the ruins of the old Benedictine monastery.

One of the best ways you can immerse yourself in a culture of a state you are visiting is through the food. Local delicacies will answer many questions about the history, nature and the way people lived there. Croatian cuisine was influenced by the food customs of many other nations, as Croatian regions were ruled for centuries by various different foreign powers. Dalmatian cuisine is typically Mediterranean which entails eating fish, vegetables, large use of extra virgin olive oil and herbs. Istrian cuisine is very similar to Dalmatian cuisine, with a larger use of fresh pasta (fuzi), different herbs and truffles which are a must try when in Istria. Traditional Slavonian and Zagreb cuisine are very similar to Hungarian cuisine with a big influence of Central European cuisine, with a large use of smoked meat, strong spices, red paprika, pickled vegetables etc.
